I prefer this variant, because it is way easier to prepare with the same delicious taste.

Ingredients, that I used in the United States:

  • 9 oz (250 g) sweet biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 9 oz (250 g) chopped walnuts
  • 5 oz (150 g) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 7 oz (200 g) apricot jam

The Process:

  • grind the walnuts and the biscuits

  • melt the chocolate with the spoonful of oil like this: put a pot with hot water over the stove to boil and put the chocolate in another pot or bowl over the boiling water (if you heat the chocolate directly over the heat, it burns easily)
