Chocolate Snowball Biscuits

About this recipe: Wrapped as a small gift, people assume these delicious chocolate biscuits are from a posh bakery. Wrong! They are a one bowl wonder that's so easy, even the teenagers can do them. The secret is the icing sugar coating that 'splits' as the biscuits spread...

Method

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Blend everything - except the icing sugar - in a food processor until it clumps together.
  2. Chill mix for one hour, if time permits, to make rolling easier. Roll heaped teaspoonfuls into balls then roll heavily in icing sugar... that's HEAVILY until the layer is thick, white and loose! Do not flatten.
  3. Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 10 minutes on greased baking trays.
  4. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before lifting.
