7 oz Westgold Butter, softened
½ cup Caster or Organic Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1 ¼ cups Plain Flour
¼ cup Cocoa
1 ½ cups Cornflakes, lightly crushed
1 tablespoon Westgold butter, softened
1 ½ cups Icing Sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons Cocoa, sifted
2 tablespoons Boiling Water
Preheat your oven to 360°F and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift in the flour and cocoa, and stir thoroughly with the butter mixture until combined before stirring in the cornflakes.
Place heaped teaspoonfuls onto the baking tray (squeeze the mixture together gently if necessary), then press lightly with a fork. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before icing.
Make the chocolate icing by beating the butter, icing sugar and cocoa together. Add enough boiling water so the icing is just spreadable. Spread over cooled biscuits and decorate each with a walnut half.
