Horlicks Doggie Biscuits

I think a lot of people have made these Horlicks Doggie Biscuits since they first appeared in the food blogs. However, there are still people who have not seen them yet and I am quite sure that my little nephews and niece have not. I did the first batch many moons ago and gave them to JW during her condo warming party. I have to give credit to the blogger who I picked the recipe from. Back then, I have just only started my cooking adventure, hence was not too "clever" with improvising. The recipe which was recommended by Florence of Do What I Like asked for "Top Flour". I didn't know what that was, and used ordinary flour. Cookies didn't turn out that fine.

This was the 1st attempt and I bought the duo Koko Crunch box. Hence, the white eared doggies.

This is my second attempt and this time, I followed Florence's recipe to the letter and the results were much better. The recipe has been reproduced below.


180g butter

80g Horlicks

100g chocolate chips

200g top flour

25g cornflour

25g milk powder

15g castor sugar

Koko Krunch


1) Sift the flour, cornflour and milk powder.

2) Cream the butter and Horlicks for 3 minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.

3) Add the sifted flour and beat for about one minute to form a dough.

4) Divide dough into 10g each. Embed 3 chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into a ball.

5) Insert 2 pieces of Koko Krunch to form the ears and 1 chocolate chip as the nose.

6) Bake at 140 degC for about 25 minutes.

7) Cool before storing.

2nd attempt

This is the 2nd attempt, which I did on Saturday morning. There were not enough cookies from the 1st attempt to give to my nephews and niece but I did share the photos with my brother, of which he commented "You sure they are dogs? They look like pandas lah.. cept for the ears". So, this time, I have some slit-ty eyed doggies. Which led to one of my nephew asking, "Why are some of the dogs eyes like that?". I told him " Those are chinese doggies lah... flat nose, beady eyes"..haha..Can't please everybody.
