Chocolate Crunch

I totally love having a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate with a biscuit that is firm enough to dunk into the tea. Especially in winter.

These biscuits are very similar consistency to my Citrus Crunch biscuits but I do roll it thicker, so they are not as crunchy. They are not overly chocolate in flavour but have a slight hint. They make a create base for cream fillings or chocolate tops. They are also not overly sweet either, but if you prefer you can cut out the sugar completely.

I usually make these biscuits with the leftover almond pulp I have from making my homemade almond milk.
