.Recipe Monday.

I think these biscuits are supposed to mimic Arnotts Kingstons. They are close and were good for a tasty for a homemade treat.

Coconut Chocolate Crunchies
125g butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 Tbs golden syrup or treacle
2 eggs
2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
chocolate icing (I made mine using icing sugar, cocoa, butter and water)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line trays with baking paper.
Beat butter, sugar and syrup until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Stir in sifted flour, coconut and oats.
Roll rounded teaspoons of mixture into balls; place about 5cm apart on trays. Flatten with a fork.
Bake about 12 minutes.
When cool, sandwich biscuits together with chocolate icing.

I love Kingston Biscuits so might have to give these a go (although I think it's the icing that makes them special - plain chocolate icing wouldn't cut it for me!!)

Thanks for sharing!

I like the taste of the Kingston but find it way too sweet for me. It's weird but I don't like my sweets or dessert too sweets. Will definitely have to try these with less sugar.
