Do you like chocolates? These Dutch Pepernoten Chocoladeflikken are a really great recipe. Because chocolate and pepernoten is a delicious combination (think of pepernoten chocolates). You definitely can't leave them on the plate!
It's almost December 5th (Sinterklaas time) again and so a delicious recipe with pepernoten. In my quest to discover delicious recipes, I made these pepernoten chocolates with 3 types of chocolate. So there is a delicious taste for every candy butt.
With 3 ingredients and 15 minutes, you can easily make this simple recipe. And I can assure you it is very much appreciated. At least here. Youngest loves pure and took care of it. The white ones disappeared in the mouth of the middle and the oldest attacked the milk chocolate. Calculate what was left for me. Nothing ;-). Well, that’s life.

However, if it gets so hot that your chocolate melts, keep it in an airtight box in the refrigerator for as short a time as possible. And take it out again when it cools down.
- Freezer - Although you don't expect it, you can freeze chocoladeflikken. Let them cool in the fridge for an hour and then wrap them in plastic wrap. Then put them in a freezer box. This way they stay good for up to a month. Let thaw at room temperature. This way they stay good for up to a month (it may be that the texture of the gingerbread cookies changes slightly).
