  • 85g golden caster sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100g chocolate chips, milk or dark

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.

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.

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!!
