Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Grease three oven trays, lining with baking paper.

Roll mixture into 20 golf ball-sized balls (66g each) and place 5cm apart on trays. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Bake cookies for 12 minutes, pushing reserved chocolate equally into cookies. Return to oven. Bake biscuits for a further 2 minutes or until golden and a biscuit can be pushed without breaking. Cool on trays.
