Does someone at your home have a notorious sweet tooth? Are they always found with one hand in the biscuit barrel? Same here. Here’s a chocolate biscuit recipe to keep the biscuit barrel full for a little while – a matter of minutes in the Thermomix and yielding over 80 biscuits!
Be ready for some serious rolling Babyologists. Luckily, this chocolate biscuit mix is nice and soft and not too sticky, making rolling a cinch. Better yet, get the kids involved and (maybe) cut down the time – though if biscuit uniformity is your thing, best do it yourself and not risk the chaos…
200g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
300g caster sugar
150g butter, cubed, at room temperature
1 large egg
- Put all the dry ingredients in the Thermomix bowl and mix 10 seconds / speed 6.
- Add the butter and press Turbo six times to combine. Add the egg and mix on the knead setting for 30 seconds.
- Roll teaspoon sized balls of the mixture and space them out on a greased and lined baking sheet. Squash them lightly with a fork or your hand. They will expand to near double their size so they need a bit of room!
- Bake the biscuits for nine to 11 minutes at 180°C. Keep an eye on them, no one wants burnt biscuits. Let them cool on the tray for a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
This recipe from Alimicboo at the Thermomix Recipe Forum is reminiscent of Arnott’s classic Chocolate Ripple bickie, and yields a lot of biscuits. Particularly so when you stick to the teaspoon roll – you’ll make around 80 biscuits.
