    Lalaloula's Note:

    This is a very sweet candy using the famous Italian amarettini cookies as a basis. It's quick and easy to put together and makes a great gift. It can be easily varied by subbing different alcohols or flavoured-syrups for the amaretto or using a different type of cookie as the basis. Chill time is included.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 150 g amarettinis (Italian almond cookie)
    • 75 ml Amaretto (almond liqueur)
    • 150 g milk chocolate

    For garnish


    1. 1
      Place the amarettini in a freezer bag and crush the cookies into very fine crumbs (using a glass bottle). Place the crumbs in a bowl and stir in the amaretto.
    2. 2
      Break the chocolate into pieces and melt those using a hot water bath. Add the cookie crumbs and mix well.
    3. 3
      Pur the mixture onto a baking sheet and form into a rectangle of about 20X10 cm. Refrigerate for 30 minute.
    4. 4
      Cut the hardened mass into small cubes (2X2.5cm).
    5. 5
      For garnish: Melt the chocolate using a hot water bath, fill it into a freezer bag, cut off a tiny edge and decorate the cubes with the chocolate. For a variation you could also use two different kinds of chocolate.
    6. 6
      Place in a box and store in a cool place (these will keep up to ten days).
