Chocolate Melting Moments – take a break from Christmas shopping

Chocolate Melting Moments

The Christmas season is already in full swing: shops are full of decorations, Christmas music and present ideas, and most people have already received their first Christmas card but not bought theirs yet. Or that might just be me…

These little chocolatey biscuits are a perfect melting moment of calm amongst the storm. They are so easy to make and absolutely delicious. Perfect with a cup of tea when you get back from the shops, or while browsing the internet. And if you can’t find any presents you like they also make a brilliant gift: pack a batch into a cellophane bag and tie with a Christmas ribbon. They will be gratefully received.



115g butter, softened

85g caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

150g SR flour

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

porridge oats


Set the oven to 180°C. Sprinkle flour over a couple of baking sheets.

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.

Sieve the flour and cocoa powder together and add it to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix it to form a dough.

Take teaspoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls. Then roll them in the oats.

Place on the baking sheets about 5cm apart and flatten slightly. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the baking sheets and allow to cool on a wire rack.
