  • 160g unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
  • 1 cup (185g) light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder

  2. Preheat oven to 180ºC (356ºF). Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden around the edges and the biscuits come away easily from the parchment paper.
