Evil Biscuits; Afghan Biscuits

13 Apr

I straight-out ripped these off from The Edmonds Cook Book.

But I have to share them, ’cause they are so yum.

They do not qualify as healthy or sugar-free or anything like that so will be categorised under Evil Food – Look Away!

And you should look away if you don’t want to eat sugar.

These are a traditional food of my people.



200g Olivani or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 & 1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups cornflakes
1 teaspoon vanilla essence


1 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons Olivani or margarine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 cup cocoa
Boiling water
Whole walnuts (optional)


Blend all biscuit ingredients except cornflakes in blender (or by hand) and transfer dough to a bowl. Smoosh in cornflakes by hand. Roll balls of mixture onto a greased oven tray and press down with a fork. Bake at 200°C for 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown and firm to the touch.

While biscuits cool make icing. Put icing sugar into a bowl and create a well in the centre. Add Olivani and vanilla in the centre of the well. Add small amounts of boiling water and keep stirring until icing reaches the desired consistency. Ice biscuits whilst slightly warm.

Eat every single one immediately and collapse into a dangerous food coma. Just before you slip out of consciousness remember that you forgot to add the walnuts like the traditional ones. Console yourself by remembering that you prefer them without the walnuts, or make another batch and press a walnut onto the top of each.
