These fave biscuits are creamy, nutty, chocolatey, crunchy and could almost be the definition of perfection. They’re always a big hit with the kids - and, of course, us grown-ups. So don’t count on them being in the kitchen for long.
200g Butter (softened) ½ cup Chelsea Caster Sugar or Organic Sugar 1 tsp Vanilla Essence 1 ¼ cups of Plain Flour ¼ cup Cocoa 1 ½ cups Cornflakes (lightly crushed)
Icing: 1 ½ cups Chelsea Rich Chocolate Icing 1 Tbsp Butter (softened) 1-2 Tbsp boiling water
Preheat your oven to 180°C. Grease or line a baking tray with baking paper. In a large bowl beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift in flour and cocoa, stir thoroughly with the butter mixture until combined before stirring in the cornflakes. Place heaped teaspoonfuls onto a baking tray, squeeze mixture together gently if necessary then press lightly with a fork. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before icing.
Icing: Mix chocolate icing sugar, butter and 1 Tbsp boiling water at a time until combined, adding more hot water if necessary until icing is a spreadable consistency. Ice biscuits and top each one with half a walnut.
