These biscuits are an unusual and delicious combination of spices, molasses and chocolate chips. They are even better after a couple of days.

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 4 cups (500g) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons bicarb soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 4 cups dark chocolate chips

Awful - I think the recipe should be 1/4 cup molasses - not 1 cup. Mine came out the colour of dark chocolate, not pale brown like the photo. Also, the ground cloves was omitted from the Directions. - 29 Jun 2016
