For the basic dough, I just used a simple recipe for cookies. It doesn't matter really - to get the pretty two-color effect, you can use any recipe that gives you nice workable white dough.
Once you have made your basic dough, divide it into two parts. Add some cocoa powder to one part - just enough to make it brown. Then pinch off a bit of white dough and roll it between your hands, making a longish rounded "worm". Do the same with a bit of brown dough. Twist the two "worms" around one another, roll into ball, flatten slightly and place on baking sheet. Very easy and fun for children and adults.
Put into the oven and be careful not to overbake. I like my cookies only just done, even before the edges have started to turn golden.
Then make a pot of tea and enjoy tea and cookies as a family, or call a friend to come along!
