    These are so good! I found the recipe while looking for something to use my corn flour for, and I'm so glad I made them. They're easy, quick and they taste delicious!  -  23 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Even though the chocolate in the photo isn't part of the recipe, I melted some plain chocolate and dipped the biscuits in them. They tasted delicious and looked very professional.  -  08 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
