Author Notes: Growing up in Barcelona, Spain our Mom used to make this amazing chocolate dessert, it is totally addictive. We would sneak out of our rooms at night, to indulge in this midnight snack. We are sisters, we now live in the US and we called our Mom for the recipe, we just spiced it up a little! Butter, chocolate and cookies how good is that! —May I have that recipe
Makes: 10-12 slices
cup good quality pure unsweetened cocoa powder
teaspoon smoked sea salt
teaspoon cayenne pepper
cup unsalted butter softened
cup powdered sugar
pieces "petit beurre" cookies ( we like Osem brand)
- Combine cocoa powder, sea salt and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer beat butter and powdered sugar, until light and fluffy.
- Add cocoa powder mixture and milk and keep beating until light and creamy.
- Crush cookies over the butter and cocoa mixture, mixing with a wooden spoon until well incorporated.
- Take the freezer bag and lay it flat on the counter. Spoon the butter mixture across one side of the bag and roll the bag over it to form a log. Keep rolling until you reach the end of the bag. Twist the ends and place in the freezer until it hardens, at least 2 hours.
- Cut in thick round slices and enjoy!
