Prep Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 16 large cookies
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
  • 225g - butter, at room temperature
  • 200g (250ml) - light brown sugar
  • 100g (125ml) - dark brown sugar
  • 2 - eggs
  • 315g (560ml) - flour
  • 30ml - cocoa
  • 3ml - baking powder
  • 3ml - bicarbonate of soda
  • - a pinch of salt
  • 150g - dark chocolate, chopped into chips
  • 12 - soft toffees, chopped
Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.

1 Beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg until well mixed. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt together; mix this, plus the chocolate and toffee, into the egg mixture to form a soft biscuit dough.

2 Preheat the oven to 180°C. Divide the dough in half and divide each half into eight equal-sized cookies. Flatten each one and arrange eight on a baking tray with enough space in-between so that the biscuits can spread while baking.

3 Bake for about 15 minutes per baking tray or until golden-brown and cooked through.
