Delicious Romany Creams

Romany Creams

This is another recipe contributed by Vimala Naidoo. I tried the recipe for Romany Creams last night and I was amazed and delighted that it tasted just like the real Romany Creams. It is made without eggs, so if you have health issues or if you are observing a religious event and not eating eggs, these biscuits will be a great treat for you.

Vimala's recipe asked for 125 grams of Rama Margarine. I used 125 grams of butter.

Here is the recipe.


Dry Ingredients

  1. 1 cup all purpose flour
  2. 2 tsp. baking powder
  3. 1 cup dessicated coconut. Get one that is not finely ground
  4. 2 tblsps.cocoa powder
  5. 3/4 cup sugar
  6. 125 grams/1 sticks/4 ounces butter or margarine
  7. ¼tsp salt
  8. 1 cup real chocolate chips


  1. Sift all the dry ingredients
  2. Add dessicated coconut and keep aside
  3. Pulse sugar and butter in food processor
  4. Combine butter,sugar mix and flour mix. Mix thoroughly until a soft dough forms
  5. If you find the dough needs more softening add 1-2 teaspoons of water
  6. Heat oven to 180°C. or 350°F
  7. Prepare baking tray. Either spread a little butter/margarine on tray or use parchment paper
  8. Make 36 balls. Flatten them by pressing with the back of a fork and place on tray
  9. Allow space for dough to expand. Bake for 15 minutes
  10. Remove from oven and let it cool

Chocolate Filling

  1. Boil water in pot
  2. Place chocolate chips in a dish. Now place this dish into the pot while it continues to boil
  3. In 5 minutes mix the choc. chips and stir until the chips melt
  4. Remove from heat and continue to mix until you get a nice smooth consistency
  5. I used a glass Pyrex bowl that withstands heat


  1. When biscuits/cookies are cool, apply chocolate to cookies
  2. use up all the melted chocolate, this amount of chocolate produces a really delicious biscuit
  3. Sandwich biscuits. Let the chocolate set until it feels firm. Then serve and expect lots of compliments
