We’ve been iso-baking up a storm and Arnott’s have given us something new to make with the release of their ‘top-secret’ recipe for Monte Carlo biscuits.
The Aussie biscuit maker’s Monte Carlo is made up of two biscuits sandwiched together with a vanilla cream and jam filling.
This sweet treat has been a favourite in our homes since the Monte Carlo was first made in 1926
But the actual ingredients of these favourite biscuits have been shrouded in mystery….until now.
We know now that these Monte Carlo cookies contain golden syrup, desiccated coconut, butter and a few other ingredients to make these delicious crunchy sandwich cookies.
Arnott’s has been regularly sharing their top-secret recipes for their favourite biscuits. You can now bake these Monte Carlo biscuits, as well as Arnott’s Scotch Fingers at home.
