Chocolate Cookies ( Romany Creams)

READY IN: 43mins
Recipe by Bokenpop aka Madele

If equated, these are to South African children what Oreo Cookies are to American children, though they are not the same in taste. I never stick mine together to make 'sandwiches' but prefer to dip each cookie into melted chocolate and sprinkle on chocolate vermicilli.
