No 2 daughter made some beautiful chocolate biscuits this afternoon so I thought I’d post them for you to try.

Here she is with the plateful she made. There aren’t that many left now!!!


  • 100 grams dark chocolate, chopped coarsely
  • 80 grams butter, chopped
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten lightly
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and paper baking tray.

Measure out ingredients and put aside. Sift flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda together.

Melt chocolate and butter together on low heat and place in a bowl. Mix in the sifted flour mixture the caster sugar and the beaten egg. Stir until combined.  Place mixture in fridge to set a little – about 15 minutes.

Take out mixture and roll into balls.  Roll the balls into icing sugar and place on baking tray.


PS: we doubled the recipe and it worked just fine.


  1. These look so good, little cook in the making!
    Thanks for sharing on the Oh My Heartsie Girl Friday Feature this week. I have pinned to our party board!!
    Hope you have a great weekend,

  2. It is nice to see her cooking at such a young age. I’ve been teaching my boys to cook since they were around seven years old, and they don’t value the ability to do that yet. I have people in our family who is dead set against them learning it too.

    I’m glad that your daughter made these and were so proud of making them.

    1. Thanks Crystal for your comment and I agree both girls and boys should learn to cook and look after themselves, you never know when they will need the skill. Blessings

  3. Those cookies look great! Isn’t it great to have a daughter make you some? 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing this recipe with us – you’re featured this week on Five Friday Finds! I’m looking forward to what you share this week. 🙂

    1. Thanks CJ for the feature, my daughter will be thrilled, and so am I. She had such a good time making these biscuits, I will have to find something for her next week. Blessings
