Choc Hazelnut Biscuits

I'm not usually one to buy biscuits at the supermarket. Actually, I lie..... I buy what some people might refer to as the boring ones, like Malt or scotch fingers. Personally I'm a tad partial to the odd malt or scotchy, but more so the reason I buy them is because the kids like them. They are easy to hand around when out and about, don't make a mess and well, because they look a smidge boring, I'm assuming they don't have a high sugar content! Which makes it okay to give to kids, right???

There does come a time though when we have friends or cousins arrive and I need to feed lots of kids. Its then time for a bake fest, and these Choc hazelnut biscuits are quick, easy and yummy!

You will need-
150g soft butter
2/3 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup SR flour
2/3 cup Plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup of choc chips and semi crushed hazelnuts

Firstly, preheat the oven to 180 deg Celsius.
Line a baking tray with some baking paper .
Cream the butter with both sugars and the vanilla extract until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and beat in well. Sift in the flours and cocoa then mix until well combined. 
Finally add the choc chips and nuts. Mix again until well combined.
Roll into small balls- about a teaspoon size- place on tray a few centimetres apart.
Flatten with a fork.
Bake for 10-12 mins.
Allow to cool and serve with a cup of milk!

If feeling a tad more indulgent, try making smaller biscuits and spreading some nutella on the base of one biscuit and sandwich together with another. An extra hit of choc-hazelnut!

Guaranteed to have HAPPY KIDS!!!
