Add a generous topping of chocolate ganache to each biscuit (a forcing bag is ideal for this).

Leave to set in the fridge for 1 or 2 hours before eating.
Remarks
This is an ideal way to use up any leftover sweetcrust pastry you don't know what to do with.

If you are pressed for time, use a good-quality chocolate spread instead of the chocolate ganache.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
