  1. Beat the margarine and 225g cream cheese with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Mix in the flour, 100g of sugar and vanilla. Cover dough with clingfilm and refrigerate.
  2. Mix 225g of cream cheese with 100g of sugar, cinnamon, hot chocolate powder and chocolate chips. Set aside.
