These Milo biscuits are delicious, have the right amount of crunch and chewiness! In my opinion, they taste better than the packaged biscuits you get at the shops.

These biscuits make a great housewarming gift and make a perfect snack. Your kids will love them! They can even help out in the kitchen because these biscuits are so easy to make.

I make these Milo biscuits each time I run out of chocolate and am craving something sweet.

Watch your portions though, particularly if you are a big Milo fan. These biscuits can be addictive and you may end up eating the whole batch.

I get so addicted, I end up eating the first batch while waiting for the next batch to bake. When my family is around, these biscuits disappear within a day or even a few minutes.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: Makes about 30 medium sized biscuits

Ingredients

  • 130 g butter
  • ¾ cup caster sugar (or brown sugar for a nice caramel colour)
  • 1 ½ cups self raising flour (sifted)
  • 1 cup Milo (malted or regular Milo)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • (optional) chopped up walnuts/macadamia nuts
  • (optional) milk chocolate/ white chocolate/ dark chocolate chips
  • (optional) sultanas
  1. Soften butter and mix the sugar together. You may get a crumbly mixture and this is okay. Melting the butter will give a quite runny, smoother mixture and you will still get the same outcome.
  2. Combine the egg, Milo and flour. Add the optional ingredients, then line the baking tray with baking paper.
  3. If mixture is quite runny, spoon the mixture and use a fork to get it on the baking tray. If mixture is crumbly, roll the mixture into round balls in Milo, then slightly press mixture using the back of fork before baking.
  4. Bake at 170°C for 6-7 minutes. Cook them a minute longer for more crunch.
  5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, you may find that the Milo biscuits are soft to touch. Let them cool for a few minutes so that it becomes crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy in the center.

Notes:

  • For those of you who are health conscious, it is best to cut sugar down to half a cup or ¼ cup, or no sugar at all. Then increase Milo to 1¼ cup as the Milo makes it sweet enough. You can also substitute butter for low fat margarine.
  • I suggest that you taste the first batch of biscuits. If they taste quite bland, make some changes in the same mixture. Then take note of those changes so that you can make it better next time.
  • These Milo biscuits do not need chocolate as Milo already has a rich flavour. However for that extra bit of sweetness, decorate with chocolate button/s on top of mixture or press squares of top deck Cadbury chocolate into it. You can also add more Milo, about half a cup or sprinkle extra Milo on top of biscuits.
  • Use nuts to reduce sweetness.
  • These Milo biscuits go great with a glass of milk, tea or coffee.
  • Space the mixture well on the tray as the biscuits spread a lot when cooking.
  • You can make smaller, bite sized biscuits by adding 1 teaspoon of mixture on tray, which makes about 40 bite sized biscuits.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of mixture for large cookies, which makes about 25 large cookies.

      Has anyone made this as a slice instead? Need to know whether the recipe would need to be altered and how long to cook it for?
