Crunchy Delights

Ingredients :

For the crust :

1. Plain Flour/Maida - 1 cup
2. Vegetable Oil - 3.5 tbsp. + 1 tsp.
3. Cold Water - 2 tbsp.
4. Sugar - 3 tsp.

For the filling :

1. Cocoa powder - 3 tsp.
2. Milk - 1/4 cup + 1 cup
3. Sugar - 5 tbsp.
4. Biscuits(I used Krack-Jack) - 1 packet(medium sized)
5. Plain Flour - 1/4 cup
6. Wheat Flour - 1/4 cup

Method :

For the crust :

1. Mix the flour,sugar and salt and then add oil, 1 tbsp. at a time.
2. Then add the water and form a dough using the remaining oil.
3. Keep it in the freezer for 40-45 minutes.
4. Then take it out, and form thin shapes out of it.
5. Bake them for 10 minutes at 200 degree celcius(Greasing is not required as they come off easily). The temperature and time may vary depending on the oven.
6. The crusts should not be too hard. They'll become crispy after some time.

For the filling :

1. Powder the biscuits with your hand. A fine powder is not required.
2. Mix the cocoa powder and sugar in 1/4 cup milk. Keep aside.
3. Roast the flours together in a pan till the rawness of the wheat goes and the mixture turns light brown. Add the biscuit powder to this.
4. Then in a separate pan, heat the cocoa mixture and let it come to a boil. Boil it for a 10-20 seconds, keep stirring. Reduce the flame.
5. Add the flour mixture and 1 cup milk to the cocoa mixture.
5. Cook the mixture for around 5-8 minutes, till it becomes slightly hard and leaves the sides of the pan.
6. Then make shapes out of the mixture and roll them first in the sugar and then in the biscuit powder.

Take one crust and put the mixture on it and cover it with another crust. You can roll the mixture in sugar(granulated) and then keep it on the crust.

Enjoy your Crunchy Delight and do let me know how it turns out :-)

Now when I thought of the recipe, I had planned to make something hard out of the cocoa mixture but since it came out soft, I thought of making something like cream biscuits. If you know how to make a hard mixture using the same ingredients, please let me know :-)
