  • Mix the eggs, sugar, cocoa, sour cream, live oil, orange zest, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to combine well.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and stir to combine. Dough will become a little stiff. Add the chocolate and mix to combine.
  • Divide the dough into 4cm balls and place on a lined baking tray at least 4cm apart from each other. Flatten ever so slightly and bake for approx 10 minutes. Cool for a few minutes on baking tray before transferring to a wire rack.
  • Make the icing buy heating the cream until near boiling. Turn the heat off and stir through the chocolate. Stir until smooth and shiny.
  • Once the biscuits are completely cold, ice the biscuits by either dipping in the icing or loosely spooning it on to each one.


These will store for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
