  • 125 g block margarine
  • 100 g dark soft brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp Carnation Condensed Milk Light
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp mixed spice, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 180C 350 F Gas Mark 4.
  • Melt the margarine, brown sugar and condensed milk together. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Sieve together the remaining dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the syrupy mixture.
  • Bring the dough together with a spoon first, then kneed gently with clean hands.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin (or thicker if you like).
  • Cut shapes out. Gently re-knead and roll the remaining dough to make about 10-12 biscuits (it makes less if the dough is thicker).
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Cool the biscuits on a rack. Decorate as desired.
