  • 85g icing sugar

  • 15g cocoa powder

  • 25g cocoa powder

  • 100g white chocolate

  • 100g milk chocolate

  • 255g plain flour

  • 225g butter


  1. Preheat oven to 170C/Gas Mark 3.
  2. Cream the butter using an electric whisk, gradually add the sugar as you go and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Gradually sieve the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture and blend to produce soft biscuit dough.
  4. Lightly dust the kitchen work surface and rolling pin with flour.
  5. Turn the dough out and roll it to a thickness of about 1cm, then use a heart-shaped cutter to cut out biscuits. You should be able to make 12, though you may need to roll the dough between cuts.
  6. Place biscuits onto a well greased baking tray.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool before removing from the tray.
  9. In the microwave, melt the milk and white chocolate one at a time in separate bowls – heat in 30 second blasts, stirring between each one to ensure the chocolate does not burn.
  10. When the chocolate is melted spoon into a piping bag and pipe stripes of each chocolate onto the biscuit. Drag a fork across the surface of the biscuit to create a marble effect.
  11. Leave to cool, and then tuck in.

    Sounds wonderful, but you have put 2 different amounts of cocoa powder! Which one is right? There's quite a lot of flour, so I guess 25g? thanks, can't wait to try them out (before lent when I give up chocolate...!) Pippa

    Can be scored before baking to make breaking into portions easier when ready if made in a single baking tray instead of using a cutter.
