    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt 60g chocolate with 75g butter. Stir frequently until melted; remove from heat and set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix sugar, egg, egg yolk and almond extract until light and fluffy. Stir in the melted chocolate. Combine flour and walnuts; stir into the batter until just combined. Shape dough into 1.75cm balls and place them 2.5cm apart on ungreased baking trays. If the dough is too sticky, refrigerate for 30 minutes before forming balls.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until firm to the touch. Transfer to wire racks immediately and set aside to cool.
    4. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt 30g chocolate and 15g butter together, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and icing sugar until well blended. Beat in the milk one tablespoon at a time until the glaze is of the desired consistency. Dip the tops of the biscuits into the glaze and allow to dry completely before storing in an airtight container.
