The rules are the same as normal Random Recipe Challenges. Choose a cookbook at random, make the first recipe you open to, except this month, it is make the first chocolate recipe you open to. I like to make my life simple, so I used Eat Your Books to choose both. Click on the graphic for full details.
2/3 cup or 145g butter, softened at room temperature
3/4 cup or 145g sugar
1 whole egg
2 cups or 250g flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Scant 1/3 cup or 30g cocoa powder
3 1/2 oz or 100g chocolate bar (milk, white or dark) I used chocolate mint.
Grease a large baking sheet or line it with baking parchment. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
Whisk your flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in another mixing bowl.
Beat the egg into the butter/sugar mixture.
Add in the cocoa powder and the flour to make a soft dough. Beat until completely combined.
Wrap it in cling film and put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
When the dough is ready, preheat your oven to 350°F or 180°C.
Roll the dough into small balls about 1 inch or 2 centimeters across and break your chocolate bar into small squares.
Top each circle with a piece of chocolate.
Add another dough ball on top and press out to cover the chocolate.
