Try adding mini eggs or chocolate chunks to these cookies to make them extra indulgent.
Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C fan/gas mark 3) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Place the margarine and sugars into a large bowl, and using a spoon or hand whisk, beat together until smooth.
Add the golden syrup and vanilla and mix again until combined.
Finally, add in the flour and cocoa powder and gently mix together.
Split the dough into 12 even pieces. Place onto your lined baking tray and flatten gently. Space them out a little, as they will spread when cooking. Top with your favourite Easter treats.
Place tray into oven and cook for around 12–14 minutes until slightly firm and cracked on the top. They'll be slightly soft, but don't worry, they'll firm up as they cool.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
