  6. Place a sheet of baking paper on a work surface and roll each portion of dough into a 30cm-long log (it should be 4-5cm in diameter).

  11. Place biscuits on prepared baking trays, leaving a 2cm gap between the biscuits.

  13. Melt remaining chocolate over a double boiler and stir until smooth.
  14. Place biscuits on a wire rack.
  15. Drizzle chocolate over the biscuits in swirls and allow to set.
  16. Serve immediately or store unglazed biscuits in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.
