Today we present to you these rolled wafers. They're crunchy, tasty and filled with chocolate! The first ones are a little hard to make, but the last ones you  can make with your eyes closed.

11oz all-purpose flour
6oz sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
4oz cold butter diced in cubes
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp powdered cocoa

semi-sweet chocolate


1. In a bowl mix the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda/

2. Add the cold butter and mix it with the tips of your fingers untiil the little cubes are gone. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix it untill incorporated, do not work the dough too much.

3. Split the dough in two, and add the cocoa to one of the parts. Wrap the dough in plastic, keep them separated and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

4. In the meanwhile prepare the skewers that will act like a "mold" to the rolls. Cut barbecue skewers in half and wrap them in aluminium foil making them thicker.

5. Preheat the oven to 355°F.

6. Roll both doughs in a floured counter top, as thin as you can. Cut small and equal strips from both doughs. Rearrange the dough alternating the darker and lighter dough. With a small brush, add some water between the strips and use a rolling pin to "glue" the dough together.

7. Take one skewer wraped in aluminium foil and place it on top of the edge of the dough. With a big knife or spatula turn the dough over the skewer and cut the dough in a size the closes it's circumference. Brush a little water and close the little roll. Do not let the dough stick to the skewer, to make it easier to take the baked dough out.

8. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or untill the botton is slightly brown. Let it cool in a wrack.

9. With a pastry bag, or one "bag" made out of parchment paper, fill each roll with chocolate and let it dry.
