Roll out on a floured bench to about 3cm thick and use a glass or cookie cutter to cut rounds until mixture has run out. Place in a CO and bake for about 30 minutes.
Remove once cooked and allow to cool. Drizzle melted chocolate and nuts over the top. Put in the fridge to set the chocolate and enjoy  Smiley

Creamy Herb Chicken
Ingredients
4 chicken breasts
2 teaspoons each of onion powder and garlic powder
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary*
salt and pepper , to season
4 cloves garlic , minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary
1 cup milk (or half and half)*
Salt and black pepper , to taste
1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water , until smooth
Method

Coat chicken breasts with the onion and garlic powders and herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts until opaque and no longer pink inside (about 5 minutes each side, depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate; set aside.
To the same pan or skillet, heat another 2 teaspoons of olive oil and sauté garlic, with parsley, thyme and rosemary, for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
Stir in milk (or cream); season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Bring to a boil; add the cornstarch mixture to the centre of the pan, quickly stirring, until sauce has thickened slightly. Reduce heat and simmer gently for a further minute to allow the sauce to thicken more.
Return chicken to the skillet. Sprinkle with extra herbs if desired. Serve immediately.
I added a can of mushrooms as well.
