Anzac Biscuits and Chocolate Nut Biscuits

What a week! I felt like I’d earned a good baking session. The following two recipes are really easy and truly yummy.

Anzac Biscuits

Yes perhaps I am a bit premature for Anzac day but nonetheless, they are a deliciously oaty crunchy cookie.
What you will need:
100g rolled oats
140g plain flour
100g unrefined light brown sugar
45g flaked coconut
110g unsalted butter
2tbsp golden syrup
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1tbsp hot water
Preheat your oven to 175⁰C/350⁰F/Gas mark 4. Line two baking sheets with some parchment. Firstly, mix the dry ingredients together – not the bicarb.

Melt the butter and golden syrup together on a low heat. Dissolve the bicarb in the hot water and then stir this into the butter and golden syrup mixture. Mix the hot butter mix into the rest of the dry ingredients.

Put dollops of the dough onto the parchment – make sure there is room between them because these fellows expand like the foam used for house insulation. Flatten them slightly on top.

Bake them in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Don’t try and take them off the parchment too soon as they will still be soft, I learned the hard way

Ok, I’ll be honest with you and apologise in advance. Once you’ve made this, you’ll be needing to make it all the time and not only will you be accused of spending more time making this than with your loved ones, if you’re eating as much as you’re making you may end up in an aerobics class to burn them all off.
Having said that, here’s what you’ll need:
3 Snickers bars
100g butter
8 shortbread fingers
50g Rice Krispies (but I used a Nesquik chocolate cereal)

Chop up the Snickers and melt them in a pan with the butter. Break up the shortbread and stir it in with the Rice Krispies. Press the mixture into a lightly greased tin (or get a spoon out and put the TV on) and refrigerate. When they are set, cut them into chunks.

Whack in some Mars bars instead of the Snickers bars, put marshmallows into it (I passionately hate them), dried fruit, other biscuits, low fat vegetable spread if you want to save calories…yeh right. Whatever you want really, all your favourite things in one food.
