Chocolate and Peanut Butter Wafers

Method

The crackers have to be salty, because this is exactly the secret for the best wafers!

  • Beat the cookies in a food processor until finely ground.
  • In a microwavable bowl, add the butter, brown sugar, milk, granulated sugar, dark chocolate couverture and ground cookies.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes, set at 800 watts. (If you don’t have a microwave, put all of the ingredients in a saucepan and place over low heat until the butter melts. Then turn up the heat a little and boil for 5 minutes while whisking continuously.)
  • When ready, remove the plastic wrap and stir with a spatula until the chocolate has melted and is completely incorporated.
  • Spread mixture in a 20x25 cm baking pan.
  • Cover the surface with a layer of cookies. Break some apart in order to cover any gaps.
  • Add half of the warm chocolate mixture and spread nicely with a spatula.
  • Cover with another layer of cookies and press down on them with your hands.
  • Carefully add the rest of the chocolate mixture and spread evenly.
  • Cover with remaining cookies to create a third layer.
  • In another microwavable bowl, add the milk chocolate couverture and peanut butter.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for 1 ½ minutes, set at 800 watts.
  • (If you don’t have a microwave, put the ingredients in a saucepan and place over heat. Stir often until the chocolate melts and completely combines with the peanut butter to create a smooth mixture.)
  • When ready, spread evenly over the third layer of cookies.
  • To melt the white chocolate couverture, place it in a microwavable bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 1-2 minutes (with 20 second intervals so it doesn’t burn). You can also melt it in a bain marie.
  • When ready, transfer to a piping tube.
  • Pipe lines of the white chocolate over the chocolate peanut butter mixture.
  • Make the lines parallel to the smaller sides of the baking pan.
  • Then, drag a knife or toothpick vertically over the lines to create a herringbone pattern.
  • Cover baking pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to completely chill.
  • When ready, remove the plastic wrap and cut in to pieces using a sharp knife.

Tip

Wrap with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days!
