Chocolate Ginger Biscuits

I find ginger is a lovely winter warmer and what better way to enjoy it then in a chocolate biscuit.

This recipe will make about 18 biscuits which are approximately 5cm in diameter.

You will need:

  • 120g Self Raising Flour
  • 15g Cocoa Powder
  • 1tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 60g Butter
  • 60g Brown Sugar
  • 60g Dark Chocolate (chopped)
  • 60g Crystallised Ginger (cut into small pieces)
  • 70g Golden Syrup

Method:

  • Line and grease 2 baking sheets.
  • Preheat your oven to 170degrees.
  • Combine together the flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda, butter and sugar until your mixture resembles bread crumbs.
  • Add the chopped chocolate and ginger along with the golden syrup. I find it easier to start mixing with a spatula then finish with my hands. You will need to squish the mixture together to form a ball of dough.
  • Divide the dough into about 18 equal sizes balls, arrange them on your baking sheets allowing room to spread and bake for about 15mins.
  • Allow to cool for about 5mins on the trays before transferring to your cooling rack to cool completely.
