The salt in these sounds odd, but it cuts through the sweetness and is divine.
Chocolate Salted Creams
2/3 cup caster sugar
1 cup plain flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup coca
2 tablespoons custard powder
1-2 tablespoons milk
1 cup icing sugar
50g dark chocolate, melted
1-2 teaspoons sea salt flakes
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line two trays with baking paper.
Place butter, sugar, baking powder, flour, cocoa and custard powder in a mixer (enter the trusty Kitchenaid mixer) and mix until crumbly. Add egg and milk and continue to mix until it binds together. If you're rolling into balls, it should be firmer but if you're planning on piping it, add more milk if needed.
Using a star nozzle (well I did, but whatever you've got is fine) pipe twenty cent piece sized balls onto the trays, allowing room for spreading. Bake for 12 minutes and allow to cool on rack.
To prepare icing, cream butter in a mixer until smooth and creamy and add icing sugar, melted chocolate and finally the salt.
Sandwich together biscuits with icing and enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee, like a lady.
