Chocolate Biscuits Recipe

15 Mins
  • 140g butter
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 255g self-raising flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 30 chocolate squares (dark, milk or white)


Grease a large baking sheet. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale.


Beat in the egg yolks, then add the flour and cocoa powder to make a dough. Turn out and knead, then pop it into the fridge for a while. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas 5.


On a lightly floured surface, roll about a third of the dough out thinly, then cut about 30 circles with the smaller cutter. Spread them out on the baking sheet and put a square of chocolate in the middle of each one - make sure you use all the chocolate.


Then roll the rest of the dough out (I always add the leftovers from the first lot of cutting to it and knead it a bit).


Cut out the same number of circles with the larger cutter and pop them on top of the chocolate, pressing gently all the way round to seal the edge and keep all the chocolate in.


Cook in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, and eat them hot or cold.
