 ★ Ingredients ★ 

Biscuits:

  • 125 grams butter
  • ¼ cup castor sugar
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • ¼ cup powdered drinking chocolate
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Icing:

  • 250 g dark cooking chocolate
  • 250 ml thickened cream

 ★ Instructions ★ 

Biscuits:

  1. Preheat oven to 190℃ (375℉).
  2. Chop dark cooking chocolate into smallish pieces.
  3. Start by Creaming butter and sugar together.
  4. Sift flour into creamed mixture then add drinking chocolate and chocolate chips. Stir and mix together.
  5. Roll into 2 cm balls and place on a greased cooking sheet with room to spread.
  6. Flatten each ball with a fork dipped in cold water. Do not crisscross.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 7 to 8 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and set aside to cool down before adding icing.

Icing:

  1. Chop the chocolate and place in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, carefully heat the cream.
  3. Bring to a Simmer, don't let it boil.
  4. Remove from heat then pour the chocolate in and stir until smooth.

To finish:

  1. When chocolate biscuits are cool, Spread the icing on the top using a knife. (Sort of like thickly buttering a slice of bread.)

 ★ Recipe Notes ★ 

Important!
1 Do not overcook as they can become very dry.

2 Do not leave your icing sitting for too long before using.
The longer you leave it, the more it sets and will become hard to spread.

Chocolate biscuit ingredient substitutions

➧ Powdered drinking chocolate
May be substituted with chocolate Nesquik.

May be substituted with plain flour and ½ teaspoon each of baking soda & baking powder.

For those of you in the U.S it is actually just superfine granulated sugar and you may find it labeled as simply superfine.

Your chocolate biscuits will still be very chocolatey.

For a more plain chocolate biscuit that is still rich and chocolatey
