The texture is halfway between a crunchy biscotti and flapjack, and despite thinking I’d made a hash of making them as I had melted butter seemingly everywhere, they came out very successful! I have a fan assisted oven, which normally likes to cinder-ise small bakes so I reduced the temperature to 150o and gave them exactly 16 minutes – they definitely didn’t need any longer!
They are crunchy, chocolatey and fruity, and just perfect for dunking in a good cuppa with falling apart (am currently hooked on new Kenco Millicano)! I used a combination of dark chocolate chips (though didn't manage to put 40g worth in...some might have been, erm gone missing..) and my favourite Craisins (which are my favourite dried cranberries, as they are so plump and juicy!) though you can play around with the additions...I fancy trying white chocolate chips next time..
These biscuits were very popular and only hung around a short while, even with D who claims to dislike dried cranberries! I can see these being a very regular bake in our home!
