My husband Howard, son Ted and I love chocolate. Well Ted and I enjoy it slightly more than Howard but I know he won’t say no to a homemade chocolate biscuit/cookie. I like dark chocolate, for anyone who is interested, hm-mmm, Howard and Ted prefer milk chocolate. When I make chocolate biscuits I’m always weary of how much cacao powder to use in a recipe.
Howard and Ted have never told me the biscuits have to much chocolate. In fact, the first time I made these biscuits they told me there was to much salt. Hence the reason why it’s optional. I love sea salt dark chocolate but as I discovered Howard and Ted weren’t so keen. The chucky chocolate biscuits they loved but the salt wasn’t for them. It was worth a try. Personally I liked them both ways and so did a friend of mine. Below is a video and recipe for you.
Do you love chocolate and sea salt or are you just a plain chocolate kind of person? Let me know in the comments below and please don’t forget to like and follow me.

- Wet your hands under the tap as this will stop the dough from sticking.

- You may need to dampen your hands a couple more times before you finish with the dough.

- Place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes.

Sea Salt (optional) Chucky Chocolate Buckwheat Biscuits/Cookies were a hit without the salt for Howard and Ted. For me and a friend we loved these biscuits both ways. These would make a great present for a friend or relative especially at Easter. I love to give presents to friends and family but I do enjoy gifting myself occasionally too. Either way these are great to have in the house this Easter. However you decide to eat these biscuits/cookies, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
