Melting moments

Melting Moments
(My children LOVED to make these when they were small on wet, cold and windy winter days!)
175g unsalted butter, softened
50g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g self-raising flour
25g cocoa powder
filling
75g butter, softened
125g icing sugar
25g cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 180C, gas mark 4 and line a large baking sheet with baking parchment. Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Sift in the flour and cocoa and fold in until combined.
Place the mixture in a piping bag fitted with a fluted nozzle and pipe 32 x 4cm lengths onto the baking sheet, allowing room for spreading.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until just starting to become darker around the edges. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
To make the filling, combine all the filling ingredients with a teaspoon cold water and beat until smooth and creamy. Spread over half of the cooled biscuits and sandwich together with the remaining halves.

All I have to do is buy cocoa and we are sorted for tomorrow afternoon! Thanks Ish. Wednesdays are half days here, Children go to school until 12.20, and looks like the lovely snow has been washed away by the rain, and seems the the rain will continue tomorrow.

Glad you enjoyed making them. Did the children get covered in the filling?
