It’s half term. It’s pouring with rain. I have a house full of children. It’s time to bake. Easy chocolate fork biscuits sandwiched together with Nutella (other chocolate hazelnut spreads will do) – no need to thank me.


125g softened butter

2 tbsps icing sugar

100g plain (all purpose) flour

2 tbsps cornflour

1 tbsp cocoa powder



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C
  • Grease two baking trays
  • Beat the butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy (I use my Kitchen Aid obviously – any excuse!)
  • Sift the remaining dry ingredients and fold into the buttery sugary fluffiness to form a soft dough
  • Take small walnut sized pieces of the dough, roll into balls and place on the baking trays (this makes about 20)
  • Dip a fork into cold water and squash each ball until about 1cm thick
  • Bake for about 10 minutes
  • Cool on a wire rack
  • Sandwich two biscuits together with a generous blob of Nutella
  • Watch them vanish at speed
  • Explain to your husband why there are none left for him and promise to make another batch tomorrow
