Bite Size Belgian Chocolate Cookies
These little cookies represent a truly international endeavor. The biscuits themselves are made in the Netherlands; the eponymous filling comes from European neighbor Belgium; and we sell them exclusively at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s. We contemplated an internationally-themed moniker, yet ultimately decided that the easier it was to understand what was inside the box the better – they’re just so delicious we didn’t want anyone to be confused!
As their name clearly states, the Cookies are Bite Size. They’re classic round biscuit cookies, crispy and slightly buttery – substantial enough to dunk in milk or coffee, yet delicate enough to virtually melt in your mouth. Sandwiched between two of these cookies is a generous layer of rich Belgian chocolate – this filling manages to be firm and creamy at the same time, which in itself is a miracle of modern confectionary technology. Enjoy them with the aforementioned beverages, or a mug of tea or cocoa; serve alongside a scoop of your favorite ice cream; or crumble and make a crust for a favorite cheesecake recipe.
