Easy and Delicious Iced Chocolate Biscuits

The latest edition of our simple baking ideas, sees Jack making some easy and delicious iced chocolate biscuits. I’ve never been able to get biscuits quite right myself, but Jack did a good job with these. So let’s get to the simple biscuit recipe.

Ingredients

  • 300g self raising flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 250g butter
  • 125g caster sugar
Baking - easy and delicious iced chocolate biscuits

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 190c. Sift flour and cocoa powder into bowl and set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and pale in colour.
  • Mix in the sifted flour and cocoa powder until it forms a dough.
  • Roll the dough into small balls and place them on a baking sheet, well spaced apart. Then flatten the balls.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Icing and Decoration

Once the biscuits have been baked and cooked down, it’s time to decorate. Jack likes ready to roll icing, so we used that. He rolled it out and used a cutter to get the right size. Now for the fun part! Decorating the iced biscuits, Jack and Lily both think a like. They like each one individually decorated, so you have to get all of the decoration stuff out. Sprinkles, icing pens, chocolate beans etc..


So there’s the finished article, I think they turned out pretty well. They definitely felt and tasted like a biscuit, not like a cake which is what happens when I try to make biscuits. So, well done Jack. They got a big thumbs up from Lily, who I think are most of them!

This is the 4th baking post we’ve done, you can find the others by clicking the following link. Chocolate Fairy Cakes, Scooby Snacks, Marshmallow Rice Krispie Squares. We have been compiling the top 20 cakes and bakes list, I talked about in the Rice Krispie squares post. It has changed a couple of times, but I think it is nearly ready to be shared. Which we are looking forward, not as much as the baking and the eating afterwards though!

    For some reason, iced biscuits make me think of an English tea out in the garden with tea.
    I love how colorfully this batch was decorated and I bet the cocoa gives the biscuits an excellent bite. 🙂

      The icing is great to make it a special treat, gives it that extra sweet taste, and makes them look more special.

      Definitely, Lily loves to learn how to make stuff and always wants to help. Jack not so much 😂 he usually needs a bit of persuasion, but when he focuses on doing something he’s usually pretty good at it.
