One of our favourite varieties of biscuits is the French treat, Petit Ecolier. They have a butter biscuit base and an embossed chocolate top featuring a little schoolboy. When Sarah and I were in Paris we discovered a gift pack which included a biscuit cutter, chocolate moulds and recipe book so we could create our own. The recipe book (in French) has lots of inspiring combinations to put a different spin on this favourite French Biscuit. You can find Coffret Les Choco-Biscuits Maison (Marabout) at The Book Depository if you want to make your own.
Sarah used her favourite Sugar Cookie Cut Outs Recipe from Martha Stewart Cookies. She made the chocolate tops and then sandwiched them onto the cookie with some nutella. They were so delicious and we loved the different French scenes depicted on the chocolate plaques.
Next time we are planning on using a chocolate cookie base with a white chocolate top.
