Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4).

  2. Step 2:

    Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and creamy.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the flour and drinking chocolate or cocoa powder, to make a soft dough. Bring the dough together with your hands then roll into about 20 balls.

    Place the balls of dough onto 2 ungreased baking trays, allowing room for them to spread when baked. Flatten each slightly with a fork.

  5. Step 5:

    Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes. Then leave to cool on the tray.

  6. Step 6:

    While the biscuits cool, beat the butter and icing sugar together until smooth and creamy. Adding a drop of boiling water if necessary.

  7. Step 7:
