Including Cookies in Bonbons

Recommended Posts

I was thinking; you could also make an eggy cookie butter or eggy cookie ganache and use a two-ganache filling if you wanted to get some flavour in but not worry much about the texture.

does anyone have any recipe/suggestion for a sugar-free or low sugar cookie for a chocolate bar?

I want to decrease the sweetness a bit with the cookie

If you do a search for low-sugar cookies, you will find some ideas. Substituting an artificial sweetener (such as Splenda) will not decrease the sweet taste, maybe even increase it, but some people say it is fine to reduce sugar in a recipe by 25%, though that will affect browning. In searching, I found one cookie recipe (intended for children) that had practically no sugar, but I would not expect great taste. Maybe adding other flavors to the cookie (lemon zest, cinnamon) would help.  You could also look into recipes for shortbread (which is what I often use), which tends to be less sweet.

How about a Ritz cracker or a pretzel for a bit of salt?
