2. Add condensed milk and vanilla. Beat well.
3. Add flour and lastly chocolate.

I have a fan-forced oven so I went with 160 degrees C. and they took 15 mins. They puff up and then flatten. When they come out they're still soft so I let them cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack. I made a double batch of chocolate biscuits using a few tablespoons of cocoa instead of the chocolate and then made a double batch of custard biscuits, replacing the cocoa with custard powder. They were a real hit with everyone. The next day we were going over to my brother and sister in-laws new house for dinner and the whole family was going to be there so I made a double batch of both chocolate and custard biscuits and they were all gone by the time we left to come home. The next time I make them I might try substituting the cocoa or custard powder with some lemon juice. I can see so much potential for this great biscuit recipe.
