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.

How to prevent butter burning during cooking
How to prevent butter burning during cooking
Butter, which is excellent for fixing flavours in a recipe, burns if the temperature is too high. It darkens and produces unpleasant small black specks (by the way, note that the famous recipe "raie au beurre noir", ray in black butter, is a kind of sacrilege!).
