Cranberry, Dark Chocolate and Almond Biscuits


A Little while ago I was sent some wonderful dried cranberries from Natoora and decided to incorporate them into these deliciously moreish biscuits. I love the flavour combination of dark chocolate and sweet cranberries, and together with the ground almonds which give the biscuits a really delicate texture, they are a match made in heaven.
