Cooking With Kids – Double Chocolate Anzac Biscuits

This month as we commemorate the spirit of the ANZACs we thought we would make some delicious Anzac biscuits. These delicious biscuits are thought to have been made by the wives and families of soldiers serving overseas because their ingredients would survive being transported overseas. As this month we also celebrate Easter, we added an extra twist by adding cocoa and chocolate to create our double choc creations! For the printable version click HERE.
