Step 1

Sift together the flour, baking powder and cocoa.

Step 2

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and then beat in the golden syrup.

Step 3

Stir in half of the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture. Turn the dough on to a work surface and then knead in the remaining flour mixture.

Step 4

Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle the top with granulated sugar and press in with the rolling pin. Cut the dough into neat fingers (approx. 1 x 2 1/2 inches), or use cutters in whichever shape you fancy.

Step 5

Lift on to a greased baking sheet and prick each biscuit 2 or 3 times with a fork. Bake at 325f/160c/gas mark 3 for 15-20 minutes.

Step 6

While the biscuits cool, beat all the filling ingredients together. Sandwich the biscuits together in pairs.

This recipe can easily be multiplied to make a large batch of biscuits.
