Chocolate Orange Christmas Stars

Prep time


Total time





  1. 1

    Mix the softened butter and caster sugar together in a large bowl using a spoon. Add the egg yolk and orange zest and stir until mixed.

  2. 2

    Sift together the flour and cocoa and add to the buttery mixture and stir well until all the ingredients are combined and stick together to form a dough.

  3. 3

    Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until quite firm. Roll out the dough on a very well floured surface to about the thickness of a two pence piece. Cut out the dough using a star shaped cutter and place on baking sheets lined with non stick baking paper. Re-roll any off cuts and repeat. Other festive shaped cutters can also be used.

  4. 4

    Bake at 180 °C/160 °C fan/gas mark 4 for about 10 minutes for mini biscuits or until the edges are just beginning to brown. Larger biscuits may take 2-3 minutes more. Allow to cool before decorating. Dust the biscuits lightly with a little icing sugar and finely drizzle with the melted chocolate. Allow the chocolate to set before serving. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
