Marie biscuits 28
Boiled and cooled Milk 1/4 cup
Cocoa Powder 1 Tbsp
Sugar 1 Tbsp
Icing Sugar 1/2 cup
plain butter 1/4 cup
Milk powder 1/4 cup
Cocoa powder 1 Tbsp
Normally I use measuring cups and spoons as shown below in Cakes,Icecreams and puddings because they have markings(1 cup,1/2 cup etc) on them specifying their size and thus confusion is minimised.(These are easily available in markets.)
First prepare mixture for dipping in a separate bowl by adding milk,cocoa powder and sugar and mix it well.
Next prepare the mixture for applying in a separate medium sized bowl by mixing Icing sugar(can use powdered sugar also),Butter,Milk powder and cocoa powder.
It takes 5 minutes to mix it well.mix without lumps and form a paste.(I transferred it to a smaller bowl after mixing it.)
Dip the Marie biscuit in the dip mixture as shown below.
Place the dipped Marie biscuit in another small plate, and further dip the marie biscuits one by one and place them one above the other to form a tower.
Can make a tower of 14 biscuits,because given measure of paste can be applied for 2 such towers(14 biscuits each).
In the photo shown below the tower contains 10 biscuits.
Now apply the paste liberally over the biscuit tower to completely cover it with a spatula or use your fingers if you feel convenient.Ignore the mess now,can clean up afterwards.
Use a flat spoon to flatten the surface by moving from bottom to top of the tower and make the surface even.
If possible use a kitchen comb to give it a serrated look.
Freeze it for 1 hour.
After 1 hour,take it and place the knife on top of the tower and cut it vertically.
Cut biscuit tower vertically into slices with atleast 1/2 to 1 cm width each.
Cut the whole tower into slices and serve to the kids.Slices will vanish in a trice. :-)
