80g butter
60g caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
160g plain flour
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Bonne Maman caramel spread
225g milk chocolate, melted
200g white chocolate, melted

To make the dough, mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift the flour, pinch of salt and cocoa and combine until it comes together as a cookie dough. Mould with your hands into a disc, wrap in clingfilm and rest the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes – 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Roll out the dough between two pieces of baking paper to 1-1.5cm thickness and use a 6cm cookie cutter to cut out 20 circles. Place them in the oven for 6-8 minutes until cooked. Allow to cool.

Once cooled, pipe the caramel spread in the center of one biscuit leaving a 2cm border. Then gently press another biscuit on top, and dip into the melted milk chocolate with two forks until well coated. Pipe a drizzle of the white chocolate over the top of them as decoration.

Set in a cool dry area for 20 minutes or until firm.
