Treat the kids to these cute Easter biscuits - they only need 7 minutes in the oven and they're really easy to make, so get the kids involved too

Ingredients

  • 75g dark chocolate chunks
  • 100g butter
  • 110g plain flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 125g light brown muscavado sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 50g chocolate chunks
  • 100g white marzipan

Don't bother melting chocolate over a pan of simmering water. Just break it up and put it in the microwave on a low or defrost setting for a few minutes, stirring halfway through.

Gordon Ramsay, celebrity chef

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/355F/gas 4.
  2. In a small pan, melt together the dark chocolate and the butter. Transfer to a mixing bowl and leave to cool, then beat in the flour and bicarbonate of soda followed by the sugar and egg. 
Place 1 heaped tsp of the mixture, spaced well apart, on 4 non-stick baking sheets.
  3. Bake in batches for 8 - 10 mins, the biscuits will rise up and then flatten out when theyre done.
  4. Leave to firm up for a min on the trays then lift off and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. 
Melt the milk chocolate over a pan of just-boiled water.
  6. Roll the marzipan into small egg shapes, and place on the biscuits. Using a tsp, quickly drizzle over the melted chocolate.
