Milk chocolate • Candied fruit • Orange Cookie bar

How does one reinterpret the Cookie, this classic in recent pastry-making history? The Manufacture de Biscuit offers a soft, gourmand cookie, without the excessive amounts of sugar and fat often found in other cookies. It comes in a unique shape, more like a bar, like those offerend by Chocolat Alain Ducasse.

In this Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut and Orange Cookie Bar, the citrus adds softness and a touch of acidity to the cookie dough. The candied oranges come from the Saint-Sylvestre Confectionary located in Corsica, where they are handcrafted. The paste is thinly spread then covered with a Manufacture de Chocolat 45% Madagascan chocolate ganache, which is in turn covered by a second layer of cookie dough. Finally, crushed, roasted hazelnuts add a bit of crunch.
The Cookie-Bars are made daily at the Manufacture, available for an after-school snack or simply for a sweet break — they're best when freshly out of the oven!
