  1. Preheat oven to 170C (fan-forced). Line baking trays with baking paper, you will need 3 or 4.
  2. Chop the Cherry Ripes into 3 long strips lengthways and then chop into small pieces. Set aside until later.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat together the butter, vanilla extract, brown sugar and egg until well blended and smooth.
  4. Remove bowl and stir in the self-raising flour, plain flour, bicarbonate soda and cocoa powder until just combined.
  5. Stir in the chopped Cherry Ripes.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons of mixture onto the prepared trays and flatten slightly with your fingers. Place each biscuit about 3 – 4 cm apart to allow room for spreading.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from oven. Leave cookies on trays for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool. This recipe will make approximately 30 biscuits (depending on the size).
