How to cook "Pastry" Potato "classic"
We start preparing the legendary cookies by preparing the necessary ingredients. We pass the cookies through a meat grinder, or grind them into crumbs in a blender.
Now we start mixing condensed milk, softened butter and cocoa powder in a separate container.
Now add cognac to the mixture and mix everything well until smooth. The consistency of the mass should resemble chocolate paste.
Now add the cookies to the chocolate base, which were previously crushed to the state of bread crumbs. Mix everything well again.
First, the dough must be mixed with a spoon, and then you can do it with your hands. Divide the finished dough into 8-10 parts, after which we form potatoes from each.
The finished potatoes will look something like this.
Now you need to roll each cake in cocoa powder. To prevent cocoa from melting in your hands, you can pre-mix it with a small amount of powdered sugar. We put the potatoes in the refrigerator or freezer for 10 minutes.
After the lapse of time, we take out the cake from the freezer and decorate with marzipan or walnut kernels, imitating the eyes. Enjoy your meal!
