Chocolate Cherub Biscuits

 

I love these dense chocolatey biscuits. They are probably my favourite biscuit of all time. I bite all around the edge of the biscuit and leave the best part with the cherry until last.

The recipe makes heaps and they are handy to go in lunch boxes too.

Ingredients

250 gm butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups SR flour
1/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons cocoa
12 Weetbix, crushed finely

Chocolate icing
2 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 and 1/2 cups icing sugar
Small amount of water to mix

Optional glace cherry halves or pecans to decorate

 

Method:

Pre heat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

Cream the butter and sugar. Add flour, milk and cocoa. Mix well. Stir in the Weetbix. Again, mix well.

Shape into large balls and with wet fingers flatten onto a large, lined baking tray.

Cook for about 20 minutes. Cool and ice.

Icing:
Melt butter and cocoa. Add icing sugar and sufficient water to make a thick but spreadable icing. Top each biscuit with icing and decorate with cherry halves or pecans.

 

Notes:

Sometimes I make these into small biscuits and other times into the giant sized specimens that you see in boutique coffee shops.
