Recipe's preparation

    Biscuit Base
  1. Make one quantity of Luigi's 40 Second Biscuit dough as per instructions in EDC book. As a variation, add cacao powder when doing final mixing on interval speed. Refrigerate dough in cling wrap for about 30 minutes.

  2. Roll chilled dough out to about 3mm thickness and cut with fluted cutter. Place each biscuit in greased patty pan tray and bake as directed in original recipe or until biscuits are crispy. Allow to cool in tin before removing and placing on wire rack so that the biscuits hold their 'nest' shape.

  3. Nest Filling
  4. Chop chocolate pieces in TM bowl for about 10 seconds, speed 6-7. Add the 180g of peanut butter to the finely chopped chocolate. Melt together at 90C for 1 minute 30 seconds, speed 3 (or until melted).

  5. Add the shredded coconut to the chocolate peanut butter mixture and gently mix on about speed 3 till combined. You may need to adjust the coconut quantity to get the right consistency for the nest.

  6. Assembling the Biscuits
  7. Using two soup spoons, scoop the nest filling out of the TM bowl and place in the centre of each biscuit. Top each biscuit with speckled eggs before chocolate sets. You may wish to pop biscuits in the fridge to speed up the setting process for the filling, but I have found that - once set - the biscuits are fine to stay out of the fridge.

  • I mostly included that

    I mostly included that because I was worried the chocolate would set too hard to bite into (and because I'm addicted to the chocolate/peanut butter combo, lol!)... Maybe you could try a little copha or coconut oil just to keep the chocolate from completely setting? Or an alternative nut butter?

    I'm wondering what we could use instead of the peanut butter?
