Home Learning

You will need

  • 500g dark cooking chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 160g icing sugar And to coat them, you can choose: unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut powder, flaked almonds (crush them before), mini sugar pearls or multi-coloured vermicelli, peanuts (crush them before), sesame seeds, etc.

What to do

Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan. Then remove from the heat and add the egg yolks, vanilla sugar and icing sugar. Mix well. Put in the fridge for at least an hour. If it has been in the fridge for a long time, take out the bowl in advance so that the dough is not as hard as concrete as you may not be able to push the spoon in.

You and your child then each make small balls, which you can roll in the decoration of your choice.
