Mum's Chocolate Chip Biscuits
These biscuits were something I loved eating when I was a kid. A simple recipe that is easy and quick to cook, and taste sensational. A good tip would be to make a double quantity as they get eaten pretty fast!!!
I guess 'technically' these are actually cookies and not biscuits, but we always called them biscuits as the term cookie sounds so awfully American!! Just before we get into the recipe, don't message me asking why the weights are so ridiculously specific....they have been converted from ounces to grams!! Also you could replace dark with white chocolate and add some macadamia nuts....You are only limited by your imagination....although I would steer clear of gherkins!!
114 g (4 oz.) Dark Chocolate [Old Gold, Lindt 70%] chopped roughly, leaving some good chunks
2 Tablespoons sugar
170 g (6 oz.) self raising flour
114 g (4 oz.) soft salted butter
2 Tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
Cream the butter, sugar and condensed milk. Add the self raising flour and chopped chocolate and combine. Roll into balls, about the size of a small golf ball, put onto a baking sheet and press down with a fork allowing some space for them to grow!
Cook at 180ºC for about 12-15 minutes, but be guided by them being just golden at the edges.
