DifficultyEasy Peasy


  • 7 oz sugar
  • 0.4 pints water
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp. cognac
  • 9 oz walnuts, chopped
  • 5 oz toasted breadcrumbs for sprinkling
  • 1.1 lb melted baking chocolate


  1. Stir the sugar, water, cocoa powder and cinnamon into a pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients: cognac, walnuts, and breadcrumbs, and combine until the mixture forms a doughy paste.
  3. Roll the paste out into a thick sheet and cut the kariokes using a cookie cutter, or shape it into a roll (like in the chocolate cold cake recipe) and cut into slices after chilling.
  4. Dip the kariokes in a bowl of melted baking chocolate until coated.
  5. Put the chocolates on parchment paper to cool.

Wrap individually and store in a cool place (not the refrigerator).


  • The melted chocolate must be lukewarm otherwise it will stiffen up and not coat the kariokes evenly.
