Caramel & Choc biscuits

caramel-choc-biscuits-1

Everyone needs a fail-proof, sure-to-please recipe in their arsenal, perfect for those last minute events you need home baking for – which is where these caramel and chocolate chunk biscuits come in.

Soft and chewy, decadent and moorish, these biscuits are my absolute go-to when you need delicious baking in a pinch. Not only is the dough deliciously soft and chocolatey, but they’re packed with chunks of real milk chocolate – every biscuit is guaranteed to have a piece of gooey chocolate hiding inside.

But the best thing about these biscuits is how easy they are to make – you’ll have the mixture whipped up in just minutes and a tray (or six) ready to pop in the oven before you know it.

Because of how decadent these biscuits are, they’re best enjoyed along with a cup tea in your favourite tea cup (if you’re on the hunt for a new one, then check out this cup and saucer set – it’s gorgeous).

Enjoy!
