• 250 ml caster sugar

• 250 ml brown sugar

• 3 eggs

• 350 g butter

• 1 l self-raising flour

• 375 ml hot-chocolate powder

• 5 ml vanilla essence

• 250 ml caster sugar

• 115 g butter

• 60 ml milk

• 30 ml hot-chocolate powder


Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a baking tray.

Beat the caster sugar and brown sugar with the eggs until light and pale. Add the butter and mix well. Add the flour, hot chocolate and vanilla essence and mix to a soft dough.

Roll the dough into small balls and place the balls on the baking tray. Flatten them slightly and bake for eight to 10 minutes. Leave to cool.


Place the sugar, butter and milk in a saucepan. Mix the hot-chocolate powder with the boiling water and add it to the milk mixture. Mix well and boil rapidly for five minutes.

Remove from the heat and beat until stiff and cold.

Spread the filling over cooled biscuits and sandwich together.
