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. ┬áPlace 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.
