Pour the dough into the pan and spread it to form a 1 cm thick layer. Cook for approx. 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool a little and cut out rectangles of approx. 2 x 5 cm.
  2. For the icing, line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Over low heat, melt the chocolate with the butter and water. Stir in the icing sugar and spices, then remove the pan from the heat. Dip the bits of magenbrot into the glaze a few at a time. Remove them with a fork and let them drain before placing them on the trays. Let the magenbrots dry for at least 4 hours, even better overnight, making sure to turn them once.
