I’ve always known that I’m just like my Mum. We’re so similar in so many ways; it can get a bit freaky at times! But every now and then I realise that little bits of my Dad have snuck through too. Like my slight addiction to chocolate, and needing to know that there’s a stash of it somewhere in the house!
These little biscuits are perfect to make if you need a bit of a chocolate fix but don’t have any actual chocolate bars in the house! They’re also a great recipe to do with young children as it’s just a case of measuring ingredients, plonking them all in a bowl, mixing, dividing and cooking!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8oz (225b) margarine
- 4oz (100g) caster sugar
- 8oz (225g) self raising flour
- 2oz cocoa powder
- Handful of chocolate chips
And here’s what you do:
- Mix all the ingredients together (you might need to get your hands in to get it to all come together properly!)
- Divide into walnut size pieces and flatten on a greased baking sheet. I like to flatten them with a fork to get the pretty lines on them. Rhys prefers to squish them down with his hands. Either method works fine!
- Cook in preheated oven at 190 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
- Sprinkle with icing sugar when cool.
These seem to be a little bit better after they’ve properly cooled down – they’re quite soft and a bit cakey and if you eat them straight away when they’re still warm you’ll need a nice glass of water or milk to help wash them down!
Either way though, they’re a fab little chocolate hit if you’re ever in the need of a quick fix!
