Chilling 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings 20 biscuits


  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 150 g butter at room temperature
  • 130 g caster sugar
  • 70 g golden syrup
  • 215 g plain flour
  • 45 g cocoa powder
  • 0.5 tsp salt


  • Start by roughly chopping the chocolate into shards of the kind of size you’d like to find in a biscuit.
  • Put the butter in a food mixer and beat briefly to soften, then add the sugar and syrup, and beat on a medium speed for about five minutes, scraping down the bowl as necessary, until fluffy.
  • Meanwhile, sift together the flour, cocoa powder and salt. With the mixer running on a low speed, add the dry ingredients and continue mixing until everything comes together into a dough. Which it will, don’t worry.
  • Roll into a sausage shape about 5cm in diameter. Wrap well and chill for at least 30 minutes, and up to 10 days.
  • Heat the oven to 180C (160C fan)/350F/gas 4 and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper. Cut the sausage into thin rounds and arrange, fairly well spaced out, on the trays. Bake for 25 minutes (for crisp biscuits; or 15 for squidgy, or 20 for somewhere in between), then leave to cool on the baking tray.
