Chocolate dipped Vanilla Whirls (VG)

These are so quick to make and are a staple in our house, I often make them as an edible gift and I

have a great orange and lemon variation too!

One thing to really make these sing – good vanilla paste. I use a brand called Vanilla Mart as it gives

lots of those lovely little flecks of vanilla, it's one ingredient that is worth going the extra mile for!

My version uses a piping bag for speed and a good finish but if you’re unsure or don’t have one just

use an ice cream scoop to pop them on the baking tray then squash them down with a fork!

These are great to make into edible gifts, to take to a friends and share over a drink and a chat, or to pop the kettle on at

home, wrap up in a blanket and devour all on your own like they never existed. I won’t tell if you


250g baking spread (I use an ALDI supermarket own to keep this vegan, but stork or a baking block would do too)

50g icing sugar

2 tbsp cornflower

250g plain flour

1 teaspoon vanilla paste

1 block of plain chocolate


1 - Oven at 190*c

2 - Using an electric whisk beat the sugar and baking spread till it goes light and soft, then add

the vanilla.

3 - Add the flour and cornflower and mix till you have a soft pipeable dough.

4 - Using a piping bag with a large nozzle pipe between 18 – 22 swirls onto a lined baking tray

and bake for 15 minutes or until they start to brown on the edges, then leave to cool.

5 - Once the biscuits are cool melt the chocolate and dip each biscuit half way into the

chocolate and sprinkle ontop some sprinkles then leave on a tray on the side or in the fridge

for the chocolate to firm up – Enjoy!

Variation – Orange OR lemon

Instead of the vanilla add ½ tsp of orange or lemon essence and the zested rind of 2 large oranges or

2 lemons.

Enjoy as is without the chocolate, or swap for white chocolate – a slightly more grown-up and equally delicious treat!
