It was during my baking madness weekend that I still had some condensed milk leftover, even after baking the Chai Tea Cake. Miraculously – and I need to thank the Internet and Google for this – I found the perfect recipe to use the last drops of it.
These are very dark chocolate cookies, since the only sugar they contain is from the condensed milk. I used some chocolate ganache for the top, but one can sprinkle them with sugar, salt flakes, and even add a few chocolate chips or cranberries or some grated orange rind into the dough. The author of the original recipe even suggests sandwiching the baked cookies with vanilla ice cream, and keep them in the freezer before serving – though one would need to shape them bigger than indicated.
