Chocolate Bat Biscuits


When I started this blog I wanted it to be lifestyle but I've only done 1 food post(link) so I've decided to change that! I had a look online and I found this super cute recipe

(not my photo)
125g butter, softened
85g icing sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp milk
175g plain flour, plus extra for rolling
1 tsp fine espresso-style powder coffee
50g cocoa powder
¼ tsp salt
For Decoration:
-100g bar dark or milk chocolate
-Chocolate hundreds and thousands
-Coloured writing icing
(you will also need a bat shaped cutter unless you are really arty because then you can wing it. wing it..bat... get it?? Any back to the recipe.) 

1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy and pale, then beat in the yolk, the vanilla and milk. Sift the flour, coffee, cocoa and salt into the bowl, then mix together to make a soft dough. Shape the dough into a disc, wrap and chill for 15 mins.

2. Dust the dough all over with a little flour, then roll it between two large sheets of baking parchment, to the thickness of a £1 coin. Remove the top layer of the paper, stamp shapes with an 8cm bat (or other) cutter, and carefully lift to the lined sheets using a palette knife. Re-roll the trimmings. 

3.Bake for 10 mins or until the biscuits feel sandy and smell rich and chocolatey. Cool on the sheets for 5 mins, then lift the cookies onto a wire rack and cool completely.

4. To decorate, melt the chocolate in the microwave. One biscuit at a time, brush chocolate over the bat ears and wings with a small paintbrush, then cover with chocolate sprinkles. Tap off the excess. Pipe faces and fangs onto your bats, then leave to dry. Keep in an airtight container for up to a week. 

This would be such a cute idea for Halloween!!

Lots of Love
