November 13, 2014 in Sweet treats
Remember these? I sat a few weeks ago just thinking about these old fashioned choc marie biscuit squares and the packets upon packets I’d wolf down as a kid. What a delight they were. I’d use my tuck shop money to stock up on these and hide them under my bed so my big brother (and dad) wouldn’t find them…ahh good times. Even then, I was such an oinker. I’m not so territorial over food now, in fact, I love sharing food (except for niknaks, I’ll rip your arm off if you go for my packet). *smiles innocently*
This is such an easy recipe, some people even call these “cheat’s no bake chocolate brownies”. I have to agree somewhat, they are uber chocolatey, sweet and fudgy. It hits the spot without all the fuss and baking. These are seriaasly naughty, so this is definitely a once in a while treat, okay? Be good
Fudgy Chocolate & Marie Biscuit Squares
500g icing sugar
1 c (250 ml) good quality cocoa powder
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 t (5 ml) vanilla essence
1 packet Marie biscuits broken into pieces (bash in a packet or use a food processor)
For a less sweet option with more texture: replace 250 g of icing sugar with 200 g ground almonds
Replace vanilla essence with (½ t) 2.5 ml peppermint essence – so yum!!!
