    Norma's Note:

    Deceptively decadent chocolate biscuit ideal with coffee, after dinner or as a small treat. Children absolutely adore them, have a similar texture to shortbread only better.

      These 'cookies' were one of my favorite things when I went to new zealand. One of these with a 'flat white' and my day was complete!

      A Kiwi favourite, I must have made these over 500 times by now. Never used coconut though as hubby doesn't like it. And switched the cornflakes for all those weetbix crumbs you get at the bottom of the packet, its a great way to use them up. Of course, I stick to Cornflakes and use GF flour for my caeliac friend too. Sensational, so crumbly and buttery. And just have to have a big dollop of choc icing and half a walnut on top, its compulsory.
