Homemade Titas (lemon vanilla chocolate snack)
Step 1/ 11
- 4⅝ g butter
place butter in a plate, and mash with a fork until soft and creamy.
Step 2/ 11
- 15⅜ g confectioner’s sugar
sift sugar over butter, and keep on mashing.
Step 3/ 11
- ⅛ tbsp lemon juice
gradually add lemon juice until it forms a soft paste. Once it is soft, add more lemon juice to taste. Be carefull not to add too much, since the paste could turn liquid and not work.
Step 4/ 11
once happy with the taste, place in a bowl.
Step 5/ 11
- 4 vanilla cookies
take two vanilla cookies, and spread lemon paste on one, then place the other one on top of it, forming a sandwich.
Step 6/ 11
repeat step 5 with all cookies. The paste should be about as thick as in the picture.
Step 7/ 11
place cookie sandwiches on a sheet pan, and chill in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
Step 8/ 11
- 15⅜ g semi-sweet chocolate
Step 9/ 11
with a spoon, coat the top of the sandwich with chocolate. Personally, I like having only a light layer of chocolate over the top cookie, but if you want, you can coat the whole sanwich with chocolate.
Step 10/ 11
once all sandwiches are coated with chocolate, freeze them until the chocolate hardens, then store in the fridge until serving. (tip from my grandma: prepare them a day ahead, and chill overnight. they will be softer and the flavors will be enhanced.)
Step 11/ 11
serve, and enjoy!
Enjoy your meal!
