Choccy bikkies coated in icing sugar. They're easy to make but look great because, as they cook, the icing sugar cracks. Only cook one tray at a time cos the heat from the top will help the "cracking" process. Allow time for the dough to chill in the fridge.


Serves: 36 

  • 1/2 cup (85g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup (65ml) vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Extra time:4hours chilling  ›  Ready in:4hours32min 

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line baking trays with baking paper. Roll dough into 2cm balls.
  3. Sprinkle the icing sugar into a bowl and roll each ball in it to coat before placing onto prepared trays.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the tray for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
