I was part way through making them when the man of the house asked what sort of biscuits I was making, Sugar and spice and all things nice says I. Quick as flash he came back with 'where's the chocolate - if it's all things nice there would be chocolate'.
This led to a delightful variation. The mixture was put through a biscuit forcer, a little sugar sprinkled on top of the bicuits and sandwiched together with chocolate ganache.
