  1. Step 1

    To make chocolate syrup, combine cocoa powder, coffee powder, sugar, vanilla and 3/4 cup (185ml) water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until coffee powder and sugar dissolve. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 min or until just heated through and syrup thickens slightly. Set aside to cool slightly. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, line a baking tray with baking paper. Dip 1 end of each biscuit in the melted chocolate and transfer to the lined tray. Set aside for 20 minutes to set.

  3. Step 3

    Working in batches, combine chocolate syrup, cream and milk in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 1 min to combine. Strain into serving glasses. Dust with extra cocoa and serve with the chocolate-dipped biscuits and coffee beans.

Keep the leftover biscuits fresh for longer by storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Use them to make our White Chocolate and Raspberry Tiramisu.
