Cream 200g of butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

Mix in the flour and 50mg of cocoa powder to form a soft dough then shape into a thin log on a lightly floured surface, wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Once chilled, cut the dough into 1/2cm thick discs and place on a lined baking tray, leaving enough space for the cookies to spread.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are cooked through but still soft. Allow to cool.

Sandwich the cookies together with the frosting. And serve with chocolate milk.

To make the chocolate milk, combine 40ml of sugar and 1 tbsp hot water with 30ml of cocoa powder to form a paste. Place the chocolate syrup into a glass and top up with cold milk and add a pinch of salt.
