Kitchen Tip: Up your cookie game with gem-shaped silicone moulds. Omit forming cookie crumbs into balls. Pour tempered chocolate into moulds, then flip over, scraping off excess chocolate. Let stand until firm, about 30 min. Fill with cookie crumbs about three-quarters full. Re-temper chocolate and pour overtop until moulds are filled. Let stand until firm, then pop out of moulds.
