Chocolate Biscuit Recipe 

  • 85g soft butter (unsalted)
  • 85g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa powder

Cream the butter and sugar together, then add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix together until a dough forms and then wrap with clingfilm and place in the fridge for 15 mins.

Pre-heat the oven to 170c and line a baking tray with some greaseproof paper.

Next take the dough out of the fridge, divide into 8 equally balls and place on the greaseproof paper. Flatten into a disc shape to resemble the biscuits in the picture above and bake for around 15 mins. Once ready leave to cool then enjoy.

Tip: If you’d like to add other ingredients such as orange, peppermint or chocolate chips then do so after creaming the butter and sugar together.
