Chocolate bat biscuits
Lovely chocolate biscuit bats make a perfect Halloween party treat.

160g flour

30g icing sugar

40g Cadbury Bourneville cocoa

125g butter, chopped

1 egg, lightly beaten

Red writing icing

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6.

Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper, lightly greased and set aside.

Using a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and butter and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add the egg and pulse briefly to combine.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead to form a soft dough.

Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

Roll out the pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper to ½ cm thick.

Cut out the bat shapes, using a cookie cutter and place on the prepared baking trays.

Bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Allow to rest in the trays for 10 minutes before placing onto a wire rack.

Ice each bat with a red writing icing pen to make eyes, or simply dot them with a toothpick using the icing.

Store in an airtight container until required.
