Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, and line a baking sheet with non stick paper.
  2. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until fluffy.
  3. Melt 75g of the chocolate. Chop the remaining chocolate into little chunks.
  4. Add the melted chocolate into the butter mixture and mix until smooth.
  5. In a separate bowl sift the flours, cocoa and baking powder. Beat it into the chocolate mixture. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
  6. Drop teaspoon size balls onto baking sheet, press down slightly. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp on the outside. They may be a little soft in the middle--this is the melted chocolate. Allow to cool on the tray.

Definitely easy and quick to make. I ended up with 16 biscuits from the mix. I would suggest a cooking time of 20 minutes or even less would be better. Mine baked for slightly over the 20 minute mark and a few ended up slightly charred around the edges. Nice crunchy texture as you'd expect from a cookie. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap May 2013.

Made these as given in the recipe & had no problem with them being too hard, since they did go right from the oven directly onto a buffet where they were devoured within about 20 minutes, so . . . ! Absolutely wonderful, but then that observation does come from a confirmed chocoholic! Thanks for this simple recipe that makes a great tasting treat! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

The DS took these to recreation music group where they were enjoyed. I got 9 biscuits out of the mix and baked at 175C fan forced oven for 18 minutes with some just getting a bit too dark around the edge. I used a 86% cocoa chocolate and would highly recommend using a high cocoa content chocolate which is why I think my first batch was a dismal failure due to using everyday chocolate. Thank you Noo, made for Please Review My Recipe.
