Double Chocolate Biscuits

Hello again,
This week I did some baking and I made these double chocolate biscuits, they are really tasty and very chocolatey. In this post I will share with you how to make these biscuits. They are perfect for these cold but cosy December evenings, with a hot chocolate!


Ingredients 
To make these biscuits you will need: 
175g of softened butter or margarine
85g of golden caster sugar
200g of plain flour
1-3tbsp of cocoa powder (choose how chocolatey you want your biscuits)
100g of chocolate chips or chunks (milk or dark, I went for milk)

Equipment
You will also need:
Large mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
Rolling pin
Cookie cutter (you could go christmas themed!)
Baking tray
Oven
Baking tray

What you will to do
First you will need to add the butter or margarine (I used margarine) to the mixing bowl and mix them together with your wooden spoon until combined.


Once combined add the flour. Then add the cocoa powder and the chocolate chips or chunks (I used chocolate chunks). This bits messy- mix the mixture with your hands then combine (squeeze) the mixture together into one dough like piece, as below. Make sure your work surface is clean, then spread out some flour to stop the dough sticking. Use the rolling pin to roll out out the dough to about half a centimetre thick.


 Next cut out the biscuits from the dough using your chosen cookie cutter, you will need to wiggle it about a bit as the chocolate chunks or chips often get in the way.  Then place your biscuits on a baking tray and put in the oven for 10-12 minutes.


Once cooked (biscuits will be soft when hot but stiffen when cooling) remove from tray and place to cool. Once cooled eat and enjoy, curled up on your sofa with a hot chocolate and prepare for christmas, only 16 days!
