    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Sieve flour twice. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, caster sugar and cocoa. Cream 225g butter, blend into flour mixture. Add 75ml milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and nuts. Mix thoroughly with hands until well blended. (Dough should be the consistency of pastry, but not sticky.)
    3. For each cookie, pinch off about 1 teaspoon dough. Roll by hands into balls, each about 2.5cm in diameter. Place on greased baking trays. Do not flatten. Bake about 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from baking trays; cool on racks. When cool, drizzle each generously with chocolate frosting. Sprinkle with sugar sprinkles if desired.
    4. To make Chocolate Frosting: Melt the chocolate over low heat. Cream with 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 250g icing sugar. Gradually add hot milk, beating until smooth.
