Calories: 315kcal


  • 250 grams Butter softened
  • 1/3 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 3 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 2/3 cup Icing Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Peanuts roughly chopped


  • Preheat your oven to 170℃ fan bake. Cream together 190g of softened butter and the caster sugar until light and fluffy. 
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt then gently mix until a soft dough forms. 
  • Roll the mixture into 20-24 balls, then lay onto lined baking trays. Use a fork to flatten slightly, then place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the biscuits are baking, make the filling by creaming the remaining butter and peanut butter together. Add the icing sugar and beat until fluffy in texture. 
  • Once the biscuits have cooled, pipe or spread the peanut butter filling onto half of the biscuits, then sandwich with another. Enjoy or store in an airtight container.
