Milo biscuits

I don't know how I came across these biscuits, on a baking blog from Singapore called Happy Home Baking, but I'm glad I found them. Using a mysterious product called 'Koko Krunch' on this site the biscuits are delightfully decorated as little dogs. We've experimented with the recipe a few times using Milo instead of Horlicks, and we do nothing fancier than place a piece of chopped up chocolate in the middle; some with milk chocolate, some with dark. I've modified the recipe to include a little sugar, otherwise I think they'd need a lot more chocolate.

They are an excellent biscuit to make with a child as the dough is nice to handle and one could go to town decorating them. Bizarrely I've discovered that Hannah much prefers them with dark chocolate - is this common amongst four year olds?

180g softened butter
80g Milo
80g castor sugar
200g flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
a couple of squares of nut-free chocolate, chopped into small pieces

Pre-heat the oven to 140 degrees C.

Cream butter with Milo and sugar, then mix in flour, cornflour and milk powder. Divide the dough up into 48 pieces. Roll and slightly flatten each ball of dough, then place a piece of chocolate in the middle.

Place onto a lined baking tray and bake for about 25 minutes.
