Chocolate wafers are one of those recipes that take me back to my childhood in Venezuela, because there was a very popular wafer brand with chocolate and coconut. I spent almost all my allowance in these wafers, and when I needed something else I had to ask for extra money from my grandparents (my parents would never have given it to me because I had to learn how to manage my budgets). So, one day, tired of asking her for money to buy wafers, Tata (my grandma) taught me how to prepare them myself, and helped me save money as well! She gave me this recipe and ever since I’ve always preferred to make them myself.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
  • Slice dough into 1/2 inch-thick rounds and place on lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Cool thoroughly and…
