The trend of making these Horlick cookies was started a few years back. These cookies are originally made into cute doggie faces and are always in my To-Bake list but I never got a chance to bake them until now.
I've modified these cookies to make them into teddy bear instead of doggy because I didn't have any Koko Krunch and chocolate rice in my pantry. The cookies are very nice with lots of malted milk taste but my cheeky son bite off the chocolate chip ears of these cookies and give me all the ear-less teddies to finish. *sign*
Here's the recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover (with my modification in blue)
Ingredients for 110 pieces of dog cookies
Corn flour 40g
Milk powder 40g
Cake Flour 250g
Caster sugar 30g
Egg Yolk 1
Preheat the oven to 150°C. Beat butter and sugar till light and creamy. While beating, add egg yolk until combined. Add Horlick, flour and milk powder and mix well to combine (Do not overmix).
Weight 10g of dough each and shape into small round ball and decorate each with 2x Nestle KoKo Krunch as ears, 1x chocolate chip as nose and 2x chocolate rice as eyes. Bake for 25mins. Allow to cool completely on tray. To avoid the cookies becoming soggy, store immediately in airtight container after they are cooled completely .
I made 20 cookies with 1/4 of the recipe. I replaced egg yolk with 1 tbsp water and decorated each cookie with 2x chocolate chips as the ears of a teddy bear. After the cookies were baked and cooled completed, I drew the eyes and mouth on the cookie with melted chocolate.
