{Afgan Biscuits}

If you are a kiwi you don't need any introduction to these, if you are not then you are in for a treat, they are a delicious chocolately biscuit crammed full of cornflakes and butter, lots of butter! traditionally these are iced with a chocolate icing and made pretty with a walnut on top.  I'm a bit lazy and over the years have given away with that malarky and quite often just drizzle or dollop them with melted dark chocolate and my nut of choice is the pistachio.  Super yum. And Jays nemesis.

...the bickies
200g butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups cornflakes
dark chocolate to drizzle

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, sift in flour and cocoa, stir, add cornflakes and stir again.

Roll walnut sized balls of mixture together and press gently onto a lined tray.  Bake at 180 for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and firm.

Once cool drizzle with melted dark chocolate.


  1. These have been on my to try list for a while, must do it. I tried another NZ classic today - Belgian Biscuits complete with a sprinkle of jelly crystals - delicious! I like your blog makeover :)
