A recipe with video for an austrian Christmas treat! No baking required and easy :) Chocolate, dried fruits & nuts make a delicious addition to your cookie plate!
We used aquafaba as a replacement for an egg white. Aquafaba is the liquid that’s in the cans with cooked chickpeas and works great as an egg-white replacement. You can whip it up and it holds the dough together. Without it, it’s a little bit crumbly.
The recipe calls for 200 g of chocolate, but 100 g works as well (happens when you talk too much while baking )
