METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 160C Fan 180C conventional
  2. Mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt
  3. In a separate bowl cream together the butter, caster sugar, icing sugar, oil and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mix, bring together in a ball, return to the bowl and cover with a plate and pop into the fridge for 10 minutes to firm up.
  4. Get your sprinkles ready by pouring them into a small bowl. Break the chocolate up into small squares.
  5. When the biscuit mixture is firm enough to handle form it into small balls the size of a walnut, roll half of them in the sprinkle mixture and place on the baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes until firm.
  6. While the sprinkle cookies are baking squash a square of chocolate into the remaining balls of dough, smooth the dough over the chocolate so it is completely enclosed. Roll gently in your hands to form a ball.
  7. When the sprinkles cookies are baked remove from the tray and place on a cooling rack.
  8. Allow the baking trays to cool and then place the chocolate stuffed balls onto the trays and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool if you can bear to wait.
