Godiva Heart Shaped Dark Chocolate Truffle Cookies (Chocolate Truffle Heart Biscuits)
I’m a sucker for heart shaped things especially when it comes to cookies and chocolates. I just have a soft spot for Valentines chocolates and cinnamon hearts. I cannot get enough cinnamon hearts. If I was 15 again I’d be eating them by the bucket load and forget the calories. But we are here reading about cinnamon hearts – we’re here about these great cookies (biscuits to the folk in the UK) with delightful chocolate tops.
I was offered a box of chocolates and a box of these biscuits/cookies by the PR for Godiva but of course as in all things, this is my opinion of these cookies/biscuits.
I will give a cookie with a chocolate top a lot of latitude but that still didn’t make me buy more Lu with Dairy Milk (I did buy more Ritz and have a 3-pack at home right now) so I’m not a mindless fan. I’m also the first to reach for the chocolate-coated shortbread but Waitrose ones left me a bit cold. It’s my preference but I’m still picky.
That’s where these great cookies (sorry UK readers – I’m Canadian – it’s a hard habit to break) have made their place in my heart. The cookie itself is a pretty standard one – it’s verging on a rich tea as it isn’t a shortbread but it’s much nicer. The Heard of dark chocolate is actually a tablet that is filled with a chocolate truffle crème. This gives the whole cookie (biscuit) a delightful combination of smooth and sweet with crunchy and dark.
Needless to say, this box of cookies never made it to the office 😉
