What do you do when you’re in a long distance relationship and you have most of your weekends for yourself? I read and bake. I have been quite the lazy ass lately and haven’t baked in a long time though. Last week, I decided to get back into baking and tried a raspberry meringue pie. DI-SA-STER! The curd did not set and leaked everywhere. I love meringue pies so I’ll try it again later. Today I tried biscuits and it worked quite well. So, here’s my milk chocolate-dipped vanilla biscuit recipe!
-185g soften butter
-200g caster sugar
-1.5 tsp vanilla extract
-200g milk chocolate
1. Mix the soften butter (not melted, just soften), sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl. The mixture must not be smooth or liquid but more looking like soft buttery crumbs. Use an electric whip or food processor.
2. Add the flour and egg. Mix with your hands until the mixture forms a dough.
3. Take the dough out of the bowl. Knead to bring it together in a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Pre-heat the oven at 180°C.
4. Roll the dough out on a floured surface. The flatten dough must be 5mm thick.
5. Use a cookie cutter to cute the dough and give shape to the biscuits. Place the raw biscuits on a baking sheet on a baking tray and put in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
6. Let cook until brown and remove from oven to let cool down.
7. Chop the chocolate and place it in a glass bowl. Set the bowl in the mouth of a saucepan with simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat
8. Dip lower half of each biscuit into chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip back into the bowl. Place on a cooling rack. Add decoration and place in the fridge to allow the chocolate to cool.
9. Pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy!
What do you think of my vanilla biscuit recipe? Aren’t these mouth-watering? I’ve got thirty in my kitchen so good things I have flatmates who can help me eat them! Both chocolate and decoration aren’t compulsory but they made for better pictures! Will you try this recipe?

I love baking and these look super tasty but biscuits are my arch nemesis! I can never perfect them I either undercook or overcook, any tips?
Oooh these look so yummy! Vanilla and chocolate is one of my favourite combinations and they look so simple and fun to make! My favourite thing about baking is definitely getting to eat the freshly baked food though hehe.
These look absolutely YUMMY!! I’m definitely writing down this recipe, it looks simple and quick and delicious. The only thing I would probably change in mine is adding dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate, just because I’m not really a fan of milk choc. But I’m excited to try these, maybe next weekend! Thanks for sharing x
Ohhh I LOVE the look of this! Anything dipped in chocolate sounds amazing to me, and my kids would absolutely love making these too!
MMm looks so good!! Baking is definitely a good way to pass the time- and you get a sweet treat out of it, so what’s not to love?! I’m still a beginner but my goal is to make a really good chewy and gooey chocolate chip cookie soon. Those are my favorite 🙂

They sound (and look) like they’d be delicious! Have you tried them with dark chocolate? Would that work as well?
Been looking for recipes for vanilla cookies dipped into chocolate since I had some two days ago. Will give yours a try, just need to sub the egg and the butter and I am good to go. I can relate to your short bio btw. I’m a salted caramel cookie fanatic myself. =D
These look so yummy and a great recipe to make with kids on a rainy day. Good luck on your future meringue attempt.
I love foods that look good and taste good. That’s about the only time I can get the grandkids to eat anything. They’d go nuts over these.
That looks amazing! Do you know how to make the vegan version of it?! Yumm!
Yum! These biscuits look delicious! My nephews would love to help decorate these!

When you say biscuit do you mean a cookie? Or like, a legit biscuit? lol
I also love to bake. i find it so relaxing sometimes. these chocolate dipped biscuits look delicious. definitely a recipe id love to try.
Adding sprinkles to anything makes me about 20x happier haha. I absolutely love vanilla biscuits and I know that my niece would love to do the dipping. Sounds like a great way to spend some time with my family (and an even better excuse to eat biscuits haha). x
These look like the perfect cookies for tea! I definitely need to make these.
These look so delicious! I think I may try to pull off this recipe for my Kiddies during summer break…
These are so cute — and look super tasty! And the recipe doesn’t seem to hard for a non-baker like me!
