This is a cookie with daim-candy, Daim is made by Marabou, which is in turn owned by Kraft. I don't know how easily available it is worldwide (Clotilde can apparently get it in Paris), but it's generally sold abroad at Ikea - so if you're at an Ikea, pick up some Daim and try this recipe! It's really good!
The original recipe specified margarine instead of butter. I, being a bit snobbish, substituted butter. And I think that was a mistake. At least I wasn't as pleased with mine as I had been with the ones I've tasted before so.. well, maybe you should go with margarine instead. Maybe. But I'm not sure.
Daimgrottor (translates to Daim Caves)
100 g of Daim pieces (if you can only find Daim bars, use three-four, crush them roughly)
175 g melted margarine (or butter)
3 dl flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 dl sugar
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Use small foil cups. Put 7-8 pieces of Daim in each, enough to nearly cover the bottom of the cup. (Obviously this depends on the size of your cups.) Mix the flour, sugar and baking soda. Add the melted margarine or butter, and mix into a paste. Divide this paste on top of the Daim pieces, and bake for about ten minutes. They should *not* color.
