Wholemeal Chocolate Thins

About the bake

These little biscuits are made using wholemeal flour, which seems to make them slightly less sweet (but still very good!) Easy to make and a perfect little treat.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 190°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 5).


  2. Step 2:

    Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the flour and cocoa just until a soft dough is formed.  Leave to chill for approximately fifteen minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    Roll the dough into 14 even sized balls and place onto a greased baking tray or tray lined with non-stick baking parchment. Press each ball down gently with a fork – if the mixture starts to stick it may be easier to dip the fork in flour each time first.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake for 15 minutes. Leave to cool on the tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust lightly with icing sugar before serving
