Horlicks Doggie Cookies

I found this recipe on the web recently and was extremely excited to try it out! The cookies look so cute (I actually thought it looks like a bear) and most importantly, it tastes great as well!

The last time, I made hotdog cookies as giveaways at Sausage Co. during the National Day week. And I was rather pleased to have some customers exclaiming at how cute they look, some couldn't bear to eat it, while a few came back to buy more hotdogs so as to get their hands on more hotdog cookies!

So this time round, feeling more encouraged, I decided to give these cookies away with purchases of hotdogs at Sausage Co. again. The theme would be for the Mooncake Festival. Totally unrelated, simply an excuse to give away free samples for my cookies! For those who would like to try the cookies, please kindly patronise Sausage Co. @ Icon Village!

Horlicks Doggie Cookies


180g butter
80g horlicks i used the instant horlick packet mix
100g chocolate chips
200g top flour
25g cornflour
25g milk powder
koko krunch
15g sugar (optional)

(1) Sift the top flour, cornflour and milk powder.

(2) Cream the butter and horlicks for 3 mins at low speed. Do not overbeat.

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

(4) Divide dough into 10g each. Embed 2 chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into a ball.

(5) Insert 2 pieces of koko krunch to form the ears, 3 chocolate chips to form the eyes and mouth.

(6) Bake at 140°C for ~ 25 mins.

(+) Recipe is very easy to follow
(+) Doggie cookies are easily moulded

(=) This is one great recipe to make with children! Minimal ingredients, horlick-flavoured, fun to make, nice to look at and good to eat!
(=) This simple recipe produces crusty cookies
(=) The cookie itself is not sweet at all except for the chocolate chip fillings inside. So for those with a sweet-tooth, you might want to add some castor sugar into the butter mixture
