175g Butter softened

85g Caster sugar

200g Plain flour

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

100g Chocolate chips Milk or Dark ( I used milk )


1) Mix the butter and sugar together with  a wooden spoon ( or a food processor! ) Stir in the flour and cocoa powder , and then stir in the chocolate chips – you will probably need to mix it together with your hands at this stage. Halve the dough and roll each piece into a log about 5cm thick. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hour. ( You can chill the dough for several days if you are planning to make more biscuits the same week. can be frozen for up to 1 month.

2) Turn oven to fan 160 c or conventional 180 c. Slice the logs into 1cm thick rounds , then transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 10 to 12 mins. Leave to cool on the tray.
