Guilt-less Desserts & Treats for your Family
Whilst it was never my aim to try to recreate and healthier the entire Arnotts Biscuits range it has become an accidental outcome; one that I will now obsess over and waste many hours salving over burnt cookies for (queue todays efforts in recreating Gingernut Biscuit).
The Butternut Snap Biscuit has been very versatile and super tasty (Pie, Frosting, more Pies), so I had high hopes for the Chocolate Ripple Biscuit. These Biscuits taste just like the store bought ones, but they are made without Gluten, Dairy or Processed Sugars and are also Paleo friendly. Bet they can’t put that on an Arnotts box!
These Cookies can also be used as a biscuit crumb base in a pie by following these directions and would be awesome filled with Banana Cream, Strawberry Whipped Cream or Chocolate Mousse. It can even be used instead of the Chocolate Pie Crust in the Mississippi Mud Pie or Choc-Bavarian Pie.
Is it wrong that I only came up with this recipe so I could make a Ripple Cake? No it is not…I have eaten the Ripple cake and not only is it one of the best desserts on this blog it is so ugly that it had to taste good (the food equivalent of “his got a nice personality’!).
