step 1

In a food processor pulse the biscuits and walnuts into pieces (do not ground them).

step 2

Add the chopped biscuits and walnuts in a large bowl, along with the melted butter, icing sugar, milk, brandy, cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Mix them with a spatula until everything is incorporated.

step 3

Spread the mixture lengthwise in a plastic wrap and give it a cylindrical shape using your hands.

step 4

Close the vertical sides of the plastic wrap covering the mixture and twist the sides to tight it up.

step 5

Freeze it for 1 hour or refrigerated for 2 hours.

step 6

Once frozen, place it on a surface and cut it into 1cm thick slices.

step 7

Place a heatproof bowl over a saucepan filled with boiling water (ensure that the bowl doesn’t touch the water), add the chopped dark chocolate and stir until its fully melted.

step 8

Using two forks, dip each piece in the melted chocolate, making sure to cover all sides.

step 9

Strain the excess chocolate and place them on a tray covered with baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
