Method

  1. Mix the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon. Stir in the flour and cocoa, followed by the chocolate chips – you’ll probably need to mix it together with your hands at this stage. Halve the dough and roll each piece into a log about 5cm thick. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hr or for several days. Can be frozen for up to 1 month.
  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Slice logs into 1cm-thick rounds, transfer to a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 10-12 mins. Cool on the tray.

Very easy to make and they taste delicious, however I had to bake for almost 20 minutes before they were cooked properly.

If you freeze the dough should you defrost it before cooking? Or can you freeze slices and cook from frozen?

Incredibly easy to make - maybe a little buttery but I think that's right given they are shortbreads.

These were easy to make, but I wasn't that impressed with the final result, just not very tasty.

super easy to make and really delicious

I made these as a rehearsal batch for my daughter's bday party and her verdict: they're perfect! :)

We still have one roll in the freezer and everyone's looking forward to them!

thanks for a great recipe to make little kids and parents happy!

Delicious! The mix was quite crumbly but it cooked out fine after cooling.

Very easy and tastes great! I made my improvisation- added cinnamon in stead of coco powder. Result was really tasteful!

In oven looking good. Firmed dough up on fridge overnight...... Almost impossible to cut without it being reduced to rubble! Maybe a short stay in fridge next time!!

These are so easy - lovely choccie treat with a cuppa. Best to make two batches and freeze one. That way you can lift one out of the freezer and have freshly baked biscuits in 5 mins after a long day at work! Would have 5 stars, if only for fact that can be a bit soft. (But still awesome).

I love these biscuits, I always make them when family come to stay and they never last very long! So easy to make as well and I love that you can keep the dough uncooked in the fridge/freezer ready for those biscuit emergencies!!

I followed this recipe with exact measurements but my test batch of four shortbreads turned out too salty, buttery and sandy, and not done well. So I read up a little online and put slices of raw potato into the remaining dough to soak up the saltiness and then 1) added flour, 2) added a lot more sugar, 3) added cocoa powder and 4) changed the bake time to 15-20 mins. This fixed the remaining ones enough to be enjoyable but nothing close to amazing. I'm quite disappointed! :(

These are excellent, maybe a bit buttery but the kids are loving them, will make again with white chocolate chips and wont melt the butter
