Nonna Enta’s Buttery Chocolate Biscuit Bites

Five years after that my grandmother is no longer with us, I decided to prepare one of her best recipes, these buttery chocolate biscuits bites. She used to prepare them for any occasion, from birthday parties to Easter celebrations. My sister passed me the recipe that I had locked in the cupboard until now. While I was preparing her recipe I thought I heard her whispering the tips she always gave me, still feeling her close to me. After all, isn’t this the meaning of handing down our forefathers’ recipes?
