A werewolf never turns its snout up at a good, crunchy meal. The ideal of course would be a “real” werewolf meal, a fresh and juicy human for example. As a substitute, these sweet “dog biscuits” with a drizzle of syrup will still have him licking his chops.
- Yield: 4 Servings
- Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
- 7 oz shortbread cookies
- 1 oz butter, melted
- 7 oz sweetened whipped cream
- 7 oz semisweet chocolate
- Sugar, as needed
- 1 jar (or approximately 17 ounces)
- black cherries in syrup (morello cherries . . .)
- Begin by crushing the shortbread cookies to very fine crumbs in a bowl. Melt the butter and mix with the crumbs, then place 4 pastry rings, 3¼ inches in diameter, on plates and pack the crumbs inside, pressing them down to make bases. Place the plates in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
- Place the whipped cream in a bowl. Gently melt the chocolate in another bowl and let it cool to just warm. Mix it into the whipped cream, not forgetting to taste and add some sugar if necessary. Place in the refrigerator with the bases.
- Now drain the cherries, pouring the juice into a small pan, and set aside the cherries. Boil the juice hard for 15 minutes until it becomes thick and syrupy.
- Take the bases out of the refrigerator, remove the rings, and place some cherries in a circle on top (set a few aside for decoration).
- Take a piping bag (or a freezer bag with a corner cut off ), fill with the chocolate cream, and pipe over the cherries. Decorate with the remaining cherries, pressing them on lightly so they don’t fall off. Finish by adding a generous spoonful of the cherry syrup on top of each dessert. Serve immediately.
