Percy goes Brazilian!

There's nothing better than a good chocolate and nut cookie binge and here's an idea for one with Brazils. You can also use the same weight of macademia nuts, hazelnuts – you name it!

100g self raising flour
50g golden caster sugar
50g soya margarine
50g dark vegan chocolate all broken into chips
50g Brazil nuts, again broken into chips

First, preheat your oven to 190oC or gas mark 5. While it's warming up, rub the flour, caster sugar and margarine together to create a dough. Mix in the chocolate and nuts. Cut into rounds either by flattening out and cutting up with a cookie cutter or by rolling out into a sausage and chopping off ½ inch slices. Place your rounds onto a greased baking tray and gently press down. Bake in the top of the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool for at least 15 minutes and move to a wire rack. Best eaten while the chocolate is still gooey.
