Form the biscuits
Use your hands to finish mixing and press the dough together into a ball. To make the hedgehogs, break off little bits and roll them in your hands to form balls, then shape the snout/nose. Don’t worry too much about making them perfect, ours spread in the oven a little so I ended up doing it again a little after they had been baked. Put them on their baking tray with a little space between each one.
Decorate your hedgehogs
Break up the chocolate into a microwavable bowl then zap it for 30 seconds+ until it’s melted.
Either pour the chocolate over each biscuit, dip them in your bowl or use a spoon to spread the chocolate on. We did a mixture of all 3. Sprinkle over your chocolate spinkles or nuts to form the hedgehog spines.
Use something pointy like a chopstick or cocktail stick to dip in the chocolate and form the eyes and nose.
