Mosaic

This one is my favorite dessert recipe from my mom. It is super easy to make and you can just keep it in the freezer. Whenever you feel like it, get it out of the freezer and cut slices and enjoy.

Adding cognac to it makes it tastier, but if you have kids at home and don't want to use it, it's ok to omit it. Or if you want a different taste for yourself, use Grand Marnier for a orange taste, mint liqueur for a minty taste etc. You get the picture:)

Don't substitute the powdered sugar with regular sugar, you will taste the granules. But if you want to you can use low-fat milk instead of whole milk. It still tastes good...

I always end up licking the chocolate left over in the pan, including the spoon. It's a pleasure in itself:))) Bon apettit:)

MOSAIC

Ingredients:

1 stick butter
1 Tbs Cognac
1/3 cup Milk
1/3 cup Cocoa
1/3 cup Powder Sugar
1 Egg
1 lb. Petit Buerre Cookies (it is available in most local markets, but if you can't find it, you can check Armenian or Turkish markets)

Directions:
Break the Petit Buerre into approximately one inch bits. Don't worry if they get to be smaller, it really doesn't matter, but you don't want them to become powder either.

Melt the butter in a big pan. Turn the heat off. Add cocoa, powder sugar, milk, cognac and egg, one by one, stirring.

Add the crumbled cookies to the pan after all the ingredients have melted.

Cut a big piece of plastic (saran) wrap. Spoon the mixture onto the wrap and close it tightly. After you have wrapped it, give it a triangle shape with your hands.

Put it into the freezer. It should be ready in about 2 hours. It will cut easier when frozen.
