Chocolate Moonies anyone?

Chocolate mooncake? Never heard of and never tasted one either.

Courtesy from L, I was able to enjoyed a Baked Chocolate Mooncakes not too long ago. Yes, baked chocolate.

Cool isn't it? It was awesome but I doubt that I have the capability to reproduce them. :( Then last week or so, I have yet another honour of tasting another variety.

A crystal skin version (ping pei). It was good too. This one looks easy for me to attempt. So here I am, on the eve of Mooncake Festival, rolling and banging away to produce this little cuties that is called Chocolate Snowskin Moonies.

I added a dash of cognac to make it "untouchable" for the kids. I guess my skill is still not good as I think I didn't roll the filling compact enough.

Nevertheless, this is still good. Try it.
