Simple chocolate biscuits

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!

Simple chocolate biscuit recipe

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!

    I’ve never thought about flattening biscuits with a fork for such a pretty design – thanks, my next baking tray will be stealing that inspiration!

      Haha, I can’t remember where that idea first came from, I know I can’t take full credit for it though! x

      They’re so easy to make – I think I ate more of them than the kids did though! x
