I promised some Milo inspired baking recipes this week and these Crunchies are proving to be a treat with the whole family. We recently got to experience a fantastic morning thanks to Nestle South Africa, where we learnt how to make our own MILO® Energy Cereal and its re-ignited my love for this malty drink. A Crunchie is the perfect sweet treat to enjoy with a hot drink, or as a snack in a lunch box, its also an ideal baking activity to do with kids with little hands to help you press into the tin.
This is a good old fashioned recipe, with sugar (maybe a little too much), butter, oats, coconut and flour, and of course my favourite Milo! You can pretty much add anything you like to the base of butter, flour, oats and egg.
1/2 Cup self raising flour
1/2 Cup cake flour
1/2 Cup grated chocolate – I used Milo Chocolate , you could also cut into chunks as opposed to grating
1/2 Cup Milo
2/3 Cup desiccated coconut
1/3 Cup brown sugar (original recipe had 2/3 cup but i found that too sweet)
125g melted butter
1 cup oats
Grease a baking tray and preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix
Press into baking tray
Bake for 15-20 minutes (Crunchies will harden as they cool)
Allow to cool before slicing and serve with your favourite hot beverage
