Koala Biscuits

Your little kitchen helpers will love getting hands-on to make these fluffy little koala biscuits. There’s no baking involved - just whip up some grey icing and get busy decorating those cute little koala faces.


1 cup (150g) icing sugar 
1-2 tbsp milk 
few drops black food colouring 
8 Milk Arrowroot biscuits 
1-2 tbsp desiccated coconut 
16 brown M&M’s 
8 black jelly beans 
8 white marshmallows 


1. Sift icing sugar into a large bowl. Add milk gradually and combine to create a thick icing. Add food colouring very gradually until icing is desired grey colour.
2. Spread icing onto biscuits.
3. Sprinkle icing with coconut. Invert to remove excess.
4. Place two M&M’s for the eyes and one black jelly bean for the nose. Cut marshmallows in half horizontally and position two halves for the ears.


Makes 8.
A nifty trick for neat icing is to pipe a border around the edge of the biscuit and allow it to set in the fridge. Then you just fill the centre with extra icing.
Make sure you sprinkle the coconut on while the icing is still wet so that it sticks.
These Funny face biscuits are a great party activity for kids to make.
