The cakes are not so difficult to make and they taste marvellous.

  • 500 g kransekakemasse (this is Norwegian. It is a blend of 250g grounded almonds, 2 eggwhite and 250g flour sugar. )
  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 3dl flour sugar
  • 50 g 70% cocoa chocolate; melted
  • one teaspoon of strong coffee, evt some grounded espresso
  • 200g 70% cocoa chocolate 
  • 2 teaspoons of cocos fat (Delfi)
Warm the oven to 200 degrees C. Start by rolling the almonddough in a sausage-way. Cut small slices, cut those in half, roll them to a little ball and press the ball down. You have now a little circle.

 Fill a plate and bake the little circles for 10 min, or untill golden, on 200 degrees.

Don't bake too long. It will make them hard

Now let them cool totally down. Mix together the soft butter,  the flour sugar, coffee and 50g melted chocolate
Put this mix in a spraybag with a 1M tip and spray nice little swirls on the cookies

Now you can put the cookies in the fridge for about 30-60 min
When the butter is stiff, melt the chocolate and the cocos fat "au bain marie"

 Dip now the buttercream of the cookies in the chocolate and put them cold again to let the chocolate be stiff.
