Chocolate & Salted Caramel Pink Pitaya Creams

Chocolate & Salted Caramel Pink Creams

Oh Yum! Do you have a sweet tooth? Do you love Chocolate? Do you love Salted Caramel? Well, you will love these delicious biscuit creams. Perfect with a warm cuppa in the morning, afternoon or evening!

I do love experimenting, I was initially going to try espresso chocolate but decided that might be too many flavours and I’m glad I didn’t as these turned out so delicious. Want the recipe? Here you go. If you try, let me know what you think.


Makes about 8 Biscuits

For the biscuits:-

120g Plain flour

35g Cocoa Powder

35g Powdered Sugar

100g Butter

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

For the Cream Filling:-

75g Butter

65g Powdered Sugar

1 Tsp Salted Caramel Flavouring

1 Tsp Pink Pitaya Powder

  1. Preheat your oven to 175 deg c. Line a baking tray with baking sheet.
  2. In a mixer, combine all the biscuit ingredients until it starts to come together as a dough (couple of minutes)
  3. Roll out the dough to about 5 mm thick and using a cookie cutter, cut out circles until you’ve used up all the dough. Lay onto the baking sheet and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, to make the cream, place butter into the stand mixer and on medium speed whip for about 1-2 minutes. Then add in the sugar, flavouring and pink Pitaya powder, mix on low speed until all combined. You will need to scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure mixture is all incorporated. Decant the cream mixture into a piping bag.
  5. Bake the biscuits in the oven for 15 minutes, remove and allow to cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, pipe the cream filling onto half of the biscuits and top with the remaining half. Enjoy!

I used my skull & bat embossed rolling pins from https://pastrymade.com/ , they have so many designs, you’ll be stuck for choice.

Oh yummy! We fancied a wee coffee n cake afternoon since we were having a lazy one. I recently visited the Coffee Festival in Edinburgh and discovered loads of amazing coffee roasters and new flavours, one of them was a new Cold Brew infused with CBD made by Hamilton Street Cold Brew, if you want to feel motivated, uplifting but with a little bit of calm in your day then you have to try this. I also picked up some amazing Chocolate by chocolate tree in Edinburgh, Artisan chocolates and organic chocolate are just some of their creations.
