Can you substitute milk chocolate or white chocolate melts?

These look great – I am going to try and put a healthy spin on them tonight. Will send you some pics. They will be gluten, grain and dairy free…..

Oooh, like the sound of that Narelle, thank you look forward to seeing the pic. They are very nice inside, a nice fudgy texture

Hi, these look so yummy! Just wondering, was it 160C conventional or fan forced? Thanks!

Katrina February 17, 2014 - 6:41 AM

I use fan forced. Hope you enjoy them.

These sound delicious and I intend to try them. I am assuming that after placing the balls of dough on the tray that they are flattened to some degree, but of course assumptions can often be incorrect, so I just thought I’d ask.

Yes they do flatten by themselves and create the lace effect, so delicious, hope you enjoy them 🙂
