Amira's Chocolate Fudge Biscuits

When you read this you are going to wanna grab one from the screen and eat it: "Plump rounds of choclate fudge baked into the perfect biscuit with a delectable fudge-like texture. Fresh eggs, cocoa and a generous addition of crushed walnuts complete these biscuits. Each biscuit is half dipped in dark smooth chocolate." If any of you beautiful family/friends decide to drop by I'd love to share them with you over a cuppa. These are Anthony's favourite, he's been wanting me to make them for a while and I needed to wait for a coolish day (and when I've made time for baking) because on a warm/hot day they're hard to roll into balls as the mixture just melts in your hands. They are so morish and they won't last long in your bikkie barrel. Another Dolci D'Amira recipe. ENJOY!

1 ¼ cup castor sugar
1 1/3 cup plain flour
¼ teas salt
3 eggs, lightly beaten
125g melted unsalted butter
¾ cup cocoa
¾ cup chopped walnuts or macadamia nuts or a mixture of both

Melt butter and cocoa in saucepan over low heat, stir to combine. Cool slightly then add beaten eggs. In a large bowl sift flour, add salt, sugar and nuts. Pour in butter and cocoa mixture and stir with wooden spoon. Use hands to roll into 20 grams (1 tablespoon) balls, flatten slightly with palm of hands and place in greased or lined trays. Flatten slightly again with fork to make a mark. Bake 180o C for 10 minutes. Once biscuits are cooked and cooled, cover ½ biscuit with chocolate coating.

Chocolate Coating
120 g dark chocolate
20g copha

Place chocolate and copha in heatproof bowl, sit bowl on top of saucepan filled with water. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water. Boil water and stir chocolate and copha until melted.
