Ingredients
  • 225g Asda self-raising flour
  • 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 level tsp ground ginger
  • 1 level tsp cinnamon
  • 125g butter, chilled, cubed
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 100g Asda Dark Chocolate
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices. Rub in the butter, then sift in the sugar.

  • Heat the syrup in a small pan until just warm, then add to the flour mixture. Stir to make a stiff dough.

  • Shape into small balls and put on 2 lined baking trays with a space between each. Press the balls down lightly with your hand and bake for 10 minutes. Cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.

  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water – don’t let the water touch the bowl. Drizzle the chocolate over the biscuits and leave to set.
