How cute are these? I made these this morning for the kids afterschool treat. They are a crunchy malt biscuit with chocolate chips and milo cereal ears.
I saw these cute little doggies on this blog http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.com/2007/01/horlicks-doggie-cookies.html
. I modified the recipe a bit. The kids loved them and thought they were cute. They are not very sweet but that is a good thing. The sweetness only comes from the chocolate chips and the Milo cereal.
Here is my version
Malt Doggies Biscuits (makes 45 biscuits)
180g soft butter
80g malt powder
200g plain flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
100g chocolate chips
some chocolate hail(eyes)
some Milo cereal(ears)
Pre-heat oven to 140deg C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Sieve plain flour, corn flour and milk powder.
Cream butter and malt powder.
Put in plain flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form dough.
Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
Insert two pieces of Milo cereal to form the 'ears', chocolate hail for the "eyes", and a chocolate chip in the centre for the 'nose'.
Bake at 140 deg C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.
Leave to cool on wire rack before storing in an airtight container
Unbaked - ready to go into the oven
All done, cooled and ready to eat!
