Delicious chocolate crinkle biscuits recipe

Chocolate crinkle biscuits recipe

Want a biscuit that looks super fancy and tastes sensational with its chocolate fudge brownie-like middle? This recipe for chocolate crinkle biscuits is the one.

I reserve my sweet tooth for good biscuits. Cake I can leave, but a really good biscuit – that I’ll snap up in no time. While these biscuits look tricky, I assure you they’re not. You do need to let the mixture sit for a while (preferably overnight) before baking – but it’s absolutely hand-on-my-heart worth it.

This recipe makes a few dozen biscuits but I recommend doubling the batch, for these won’t last long before being gobbled up.
