Method:

- Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan-forced, 160°C).

- Grease and line 2 x cookie sheets.

- To make the biscuits cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift in the flour and cocoa and mix well to form a stiff dough.

- Roll out the dough on a lightly-floured surface to 5mm thick, then using 5cm round cookie cutter, cut out the cookies.
