Thermomix Baci Di Dama (Biscuits Sandwiched with Chocolate)

Generally speaking, I don’t post recipes from Thermomix cookbooks…its much more fun to have the actual recipe book 🙂  However, this recipe is from the Fast and Easy Cooking cookbook (the UK version of our Everyday Cooking Cookbook) which most people in Australia wouldn’t have access to so I couldn’t resist sharing this one.

As you will see from the photograph, I made my biscuits bigger than the walnut size suggested but they still turned out beautifully.  As there is chocolate left over, I made a few biscuits covered in the chocolate which the kids (obviously!) just loved.

I hope you enjoy ….

Baci Di Dama
(Biscuits Sandwiched with Chocolate)

100 g almonds
100 g sugar
100 g soft butter
150 g flour
Vanilla essence
Pinch of salt
150 g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids, in pieces

Preheat the oven to 160˚C. 

Grind the almonds and sugar for 15 seconds on Speed 10.

Add all the other ingredients except the chocolate and mix for 15 seconds or more on Speed 3 until well mixed.  Tip out and form the mixture into small balls about the size of a walnut, placing them on baking parchment on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until just pale gold.  Leave to cool on the paper on a rack.

Clean the TM bowl.  Chop the chocolate for 10 seconds on Speed 10.  Melt for 3 minutes at 50˚C on Speed 4.  Cool a little and then spread on half the biscuits, topping each with a second biscuit to make a sandwich.  Refrigerate to set.

    Just wondering how long these would keep for?
    And do you store them in the fridge?
    Thanks in advance,
    Kendy

    • Thanks Kendy.
      Nothing ever lasts long in our house so I’m probably not the best person to check with!!! I would keep for probably 5 days. I wouldn’t store them in the fridge unless it was particularly hot…storing in the fridge might make them go soggy.
      Happy baking!! x
