Ho Ho Ho Horlicks!

A few years back, these whimsical Horlicks Doggie Cookies were all the rage on the internet. Every other respectable baker I knew was trying it out and giving their verdict on the recipe on their own sites. Seeing how cute the cookies looked, I wasted no time in joining the bandwagon as well. I just had to satisfy my insatiable curiosity – how would Horlicks, my favourite drink from my childhood, taste like in a cookie?

Recipe: Horlicks Doggie Cookies


  • 200g top flour
  • 25g corn flour
  • 25g milk powder
  • 180g butter (Golden Churn recommended)
  • 80g horlicks
  • 100g large chocolate chips
  • some mini chocolate chips
  • a pack of Koko Krunch


  1. Preheat oven to 140°C.
  2. Line a baking sheet with baking paper or silpat and set aside.
  3. Sift together the top flour, corn flour and milk powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  4. Cream together the butter and Horlicks in a large mixing bowl for about 3 minutes at low speed. Take care not to over-beat.
  5. Add in the sifted dry ingredients and beat for about 1 minute to form dough.
  6. Divide dough into 11-12g each.
  7. Add 3-4 large chocolate chips into the divided dough and roll into balls. Place them neatly onto the baking sheet.
  8. Use the mini chocolate chips as the ‘nose’ and add 2 Koko Krunch for the ‘ears’.
  9. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the cookie is golden brown in colour.
  10. Remove baking sheet from oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before storing in an airtight container.

Yield : 25 cookies

My verdict? These cookies are as good as they could get! Just steer clear if you’re not a big Horlicks fan.

These cookies are simply super-duper c.u.t.e., and I’m positively sure they will be such a hit with young children. I’m most certainly too late to get into my nephews and nieces’ good books for Christmas this year, not to mention that we would also be out of town. However, I am absolutely determined to become their most favourite auntie again during Lunar New Year next year!

If you are, like me, in a situation where you have several young children to please, then this recipe is a keeper for sure!
