    Butter is made when lactic-acid producing bacteria are added to cream and churned to make an…

  • 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.

Very easy to make, and so tasty. Crumbly and melt in the mouth. I made mine with half choc chips and half fudge pieces, worked a treat.

This recipe was so easy to follow and made in no time with my new food mixer. My first batch have just come out of the oven.....only test is can I keep my hands off them until they have cooled enough :)

Made these with my little boy. We really enjoyed them. Love the fact that you can leave the other half of the mixture and make later in the week.

Just made these using chopped up left over easter egg as I didn't have any chocolate chips to hand - yum! I cut them in more oblong shapes but I got close to 25 out of my mixture - perhaps they are smaller than they should be but they are perfect biscuit size :o)
