Guest Blog Post! Danielle's Viennese Whirl Sandwich Biscuits

Hello! I'm kayleigh's big sister Danielle, and at Easter I made Kayleigh some of these yummy Viennese Whirls. She loved them so much that she crazed me for the recipe! We then thought it would be nice to share it with you guys! So here it is, my Viennese Whirl Sandwich Biscuits (with a little bit of help from my little sis)

1 cup of Plain Flour
2/3 cup of Margarine
1/4 cup of Icing Sugar
1 tbsp of Soya Milk (Only if the mix is a little dry, so may not be needed)
1/2 tsp of Bourbon Vanilla Extract
1/2 of Good Quality Semi Sweet Choc Chips
Piping bag with a medium star nozzle

2/3 cup of Icing Sugar
1/3 Cocoa Powder
1 to 2 tsp of Soya Milk

In a bowl, cream the margarine and icing sugar together till light and fluffy. Then add the vanilla.

Then add the flour. It should all come together easily and be quite a moist but firm dough (if it is crumbly add the tbsp of soya milk).

Then fill a piping bag with the dough, and pipe out into biscuit shapes (see picture) onto a baking tray lined with non stick baking paper.

 Pop into the oven for 10 to 15 mins at 180c until golden and firm. Take out of the oven and allow to cool. Next melt your chocolate in a bain marie and then carefully dip each biscuit half way into the chocolate. Return each dipped biscuit onto the baking paper to set.

Meanwhile add the icing sugar to the cocoa powder and add a tsp of the soya milk, stir until it becomes a thick fondant. If it is to thick add the other tsp of soya milk. You want this fondant icing to be thick to sandwich the two biscuits together.
Once the biscuits are cool and the chocolate has set, spread some of the fondant icing onto one side of a biscuit and place another on top to make the biscuit sandwich. Repeat with all the biscuits!
Then enjoy with a cuppa and your family!
