So I got some dairy free chocolate spread...

...and I made some biscuits(that's cookies for non-UK readers btw!) to sandwich the chocolate spread inbetween, nice though it is to spoon straight from the tub!(Admit it- you must've tried this at some point!). Here's my biscuit recipe-

2 1/4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup sugar (Tate and Lyle brand is vegan)
1/2 cup margarine (I use Pure)
1/2 cup sunflower oil
2 tbsp water
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract

-sieve flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl
-in another large bowl, cream together the rest of the ingredients
-add dry ingredients and mix well
-spoon tablespoonfuls onto 2 baking sheets covered in greaseproof paper(makes about 30-ish) and flatten to about 1/2 cm thick, or alternatively roll out with a rolling pin and cut into shapes
-bake at 200C for 12-15 minutes or until nice and golden

-serve! Tastes lovely with chocolate spread, as pictured, or just on their own!

I must say that I have, yes. It's quite difficult to resist, which is why I often avoid buying choco spread.
Though I did hear some Dutch vegans go on about vegan choco-hazelnut spread at regular supermarkets. Will have to check that out...
