  • 100g Margarine
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Self-Raising Flour
  • 25g Cocoa
  • Few drops of Vanilla Essence

Filling (Optional)

  • 50g Butter
  • 100g Icing Sugar
  • 10ml Hot Milk
  • 25g Grated Plain Chocolate melted in 20ml Hot Milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 190oC/Gas mark 5 and grease a baking tray.

  2. Cream together the margarine and the sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the flour and the cocoa to form a dough like ball, then add the vanilla essence.

  3. Roll the mixture into marble sized balls and place on the baking tray before flattening with a cold fork. Then place in the oven to bake for about 9 minutes.

  4. When they are removed from the oven leave them on the tray for roughly 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.

  5. Optional: for the filling you mix the butter and the sugar then add the rest of ingredients. When the biscuits have cooled you can use this to sandwich them.
