I had never heard of these until about a week ago when my lovely friend Julie of ‘A Slice In The Life Of Julie’ shared the recipe. They are very simple and oh so yummy – think a nice gooey malty bickie warm out of the oven and a perfect crunchy biscuit cooled (that is if there is any left in your house by the time they cool). I will admit that I thought they were so good that I have made two batches in the last week and I will also admit that I have had to change Julie’s recipe the tiniest bit because I don’t actually own kitchen scales (I know – gasp!).
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
250g self raising flour
⅓ cup milo
½ cup chocolate drops
Preheat the oven to 170°C oven (fan bake). Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla and beat well. Sift into wet mixture the flour and milo. Fold together with the chocolate drops.
Roll teaspoons of mixture into balls and place on a lined oven tray. Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
I’m sure if you try them they will become new favourites in your house too.
Thanks for sharing Julie!
