A chocolate spin on an old favourite. A deliciously short and crumbly biscuit that will satisfy your afternoon cravings. Perfect with a big glass of milk.



Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 14 biscuits

Ingredients
125g butter, softened
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup caster sugar
¾ cup flour
¼ cup cocoa

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (fan forced) and line tray with baking paper.
Cream together the butter, 1/3 cup of sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Stir in the flour and cocoa and mix until dough forms.

Shape the dough into a sausage, wrap in cling film and chill until firm.

Unwrap and roll in the remaining caster sugar then slice and place on baking trays.

Bake for 15 minutes until dry and slightly darker around the side.
Leave on baking trays to set before turning onto a cooling rack.
Enjoy with a cold milk.
