Smoky Chocolate Crackers
find them here
It sounds bonkers. Chocolate savory crackers. Yet as soon as I read the recipe I knew I was going to make them and love them. Dark chocolate and smoked paprika embedded in a butter dough with almonds for texture? M was going to hate these-they were going to be all mine.
Everything I hoped for in these was realized. I chomped them down with glasses of milk thoroughly enjoying myself. M took one bite and immediately told me the chocolate flavor was too intense. Oh and chocolate is not meant to be savory. Victory! Whole batch to myself! (I do have to say, milk chocolate is not meant to be savory, dark chocolate works splendidly with strong spicy flavors.)
you need: flour, cocoa powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, powdered/icing sugar, granulated sugar, 2 whites, chopped almonds, butter
-Beat the butter and sugars together to creamy consistency.
-Add in the whites.

-Cut out the crackers, one disc at a time. (You can reuse the dough.)
