Chocolate Truffle Biscuits

    1 hour 25 minutes

    A very dark, rich chocolate biscuit for the true chocoholic, this recipe uses relatively little flour and a lot of chocolate. These will keep well in the freezer, but you may have a hard time waiting for them to thaw before you eat them!

    • 125g dark chocolate, chopped
    • 125g dark chocolate chips
    • 120g butter

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    1. Melt the dark chocolate, the dark chocolate chips and the butter in a microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside to cool.
    2. In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture until well mixed.
    3. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together into a bowl. Gradually stir into the chocolate mixture.
    4. Fold in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips, cover dough and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.
    5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Roll chilled dough into 2 1/2cm balls. Place on ungreased baking tray so they are 5cm apart and bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
    6. Allow biscuits to cool on tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Why use choc chips AND chopped choc, and then just melt them both together? Why not just use more chopped choc?  -  07 Jan 2009


    hi i thought the biscuits were very easy and they didnt last long, they were yummy  -  05 May 2009


    Ended up turning this mixture into a brownie. Had made double quantity as it was to cater for a cathedral function and maybe that was why they weren't staying risen. Tastes good even if it's not pretty (the ones that did end up as biscuits anyway - - they'd rise then shrink right down again) and I'm sure there will be some happy chocolate lovers at the function.  -  08 Oct 2013
