Chocolate Panda Biscuits – Recipe

 Aren't these panda biscuits just so adorable?

My recipe for panda biscuits is adapted from the recipe that was written on the packaging for the cookie cutters, which I found on eBay. I originally was just going to made them as the original recipe was written, but ended up making moderations to make the dough less sticky and the chocolate dough darker.

You can also check out my YouTube video, where I made these while chatting about how to be an influencer when you're an introvert:

Ready? Let's go.

(Makes 18 biscuits with leftover white dough.)


60g unsalted butter, softened
60g caster sugar
Pinch of salt
1 medium-sized egg
90g plain flour
80g more plain flour + 10g cocoa powder


1. Beat the butter, sugar and salt together until creamy, and whisk the egg in.

2. Place the 90g of flour in one bowl, and the 80g of flour plus 10g cocoa powder together in another bowl.

3. Divide the butter mixture evenly between the two flour bowls, and stir/knead each until you get two doughs: one plain, and one chocolate.

4. If you find the doughs are a little on the soft side, wrap them in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for half an hour. If not, go straight to the next step.

5. Preheat the oven to 170°C, and line two trays with nonstick baking parchment.

6. Roll both doughs out about 3mm thick between sheets of more baking paper or clingfilm, so they don't stick to the counter.

7. Use your cutters to cut out the bodies, faces and torsos of the pandas, sticking them together on the baking trays.

8. Bake for 10 minutes, cool on a wire rack and then eat.

Enjoy, and have fun.
