I love this recipe, simple and quick when you fancy a bit of a cocoa hit


Excellent recipe! Great to do with kiddos! Works really well as a slice too- just lower the baking temp slightly


Definitely worth making

I hardly ever bake anymore but came across this really simple recipe ( we live a few kilometres away from our grocery store) I had all the ingredients in my cupboard ....
just taken them out of the oven...a treat for our 8 yr grandchildren to take home


Grand daughters favourite biscuits, making them for over 50 years.
Favourite biscuit when back in N.Z.

Make these often and do tiny ones for little kids.Sometimes with and sometimes without walnuts as littlies are sometimes fussy.


Absolutely love making these in Australia. Grew up with Mum making them at 9.30 on a Sunday night. So easy and so quick!!!


We always make ours with weetbix instead of cornflakes and they are *chefs kiss*


grew up making these out of my mothers cookbook from the 70s ( I think? ), so glad I found this recipe so I can share it with others!


A favourite in our house. Such a quick and easy recipe.
