'Choc Ripple' Biscuits (dairy free version too)
« on: June 25, 2011, 03:56:04 am »
These are very much like Arnott's Choc Ripple biscuits  :) I have only done this recipe with Nuttelex, not butter.

Ingredients:

200gms all-purpose flour
50gms unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder (homebrand safeway/woolworths cocoa)
1 tsp. baking soda
ľ tsp. baking powder
ľ tsp. salt
330gms sugar
150gms unsalted butter/Nuttelex, at room temperature
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Put sugar in bowl, blitz to caster sugar.
Add Flour, Baking soda, Baking powder, salt, and Cocoa. Mix, 10 seconds, speed 6, MC in!

Add 150gms butter (cubed), turbo 5-6 times to combine.

Add Egg, knead for approx 30 seconds.

Roll teaspoon sized balls, and squash down in your hands (this is a very easy dough to work with, not sticky). Space well on baking trays, they will get to 2, 2 and a half times their original size.

Bake 9-11 minutes. Keep an eye on them, as it is hard to tell when they are burning  :o

Makes around 35 biscuits.

Saw these LeeJ and just had to make them immediately.  Used 250g sugar and 40g cacoa powder and cooked them for 10 minutes - 55 of the little darlings.  Thanks so much for the conversion.  Love them  :-*

You were quick Judy!

It has all pantry ingredients, I think it will become our mainstay 'choc' biscuit (dh has quite the choc ripple addiction).

I assume you used butter, are they still a dead ringer for a choc ripple?

Yes, used butter and it has been so long since I bought biscuits that I can't remember what choc ripples taste like :D :D I think they are thinner but that just makes them easier to eat. I saw a recipe this week using these biscuits as the base for a cheesecake or something but I bet I can't lay my hands on that recipe now that I have a supply of the biscuits  :-))  Just about to take a dozen over to the neighbour.

Thanks. Our biscuit barrel is empty and I couldn't decide what to make. You have solved that problem. They look lovely too.

You know you are on a winner when the lovely Judy and Cookie are making the recipe!  ;D

I crushed some up, and popped it through vanilla ice cream for dessert tonight, the ultimate test.


These would work beautifully for a cheesecake base, I do one with this sort of biscuit, a vanilla cheesecake, with a raspberry swirl, beautiful!

These are lovely. My mixture was a bit soft to roll so I put teaspoons on the tray and flattened them with a wet palette knife.

I was going to make these today but I ran out of Cocoa so will give them a try as soon as I buy some more. I was looking forward to giving them a go as I love choc ripple biscuits.

JD the mini choc ripple cheesecakes use these biscuits as the base http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=6307.0

What a shame I didn't find this recipe last night when we were planning our dinner party for tomorrow. I just went and bought another pack of the Choc Ripples to make those cheesecakes this morning. Oh well.

Thanks Kerryn, didn't think to look here as I thought I'd seen a recipe in a magazine somewhere  :-)) :-))
Perfect, thanks a lot for the thumbs up.

Right, off to make these now! I've been looking for a good crunchy chocolate bickie recipe for ages. Thanks!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

We made these tonight and they are very yummy! I liked them when they were still warm.

We used only 280g of rapadura instead of 330g of sugar, and we used cacao instead of cocoa.

I made these for the first time last night after my sons requested a combination of biscuits and chocolate for their school lunchboxes. The dough is a beautiful dough to work with, and the biscuits taste pretty good too! Will definitely be on the menu again at our house.
