  • The things you can add to this base is only limited to your imagination. One batch usually makes around 100 biscuits.
  • With this batch I made 4 types of biscuits. To 2 cups each I added the following. 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. 1 cup of cornflakes and 1/2 cup choc chips. 1 cup of Coco Pops. 1/2 cup crunchy Peanut butter.
  • You can also add honey and oats, sultanas, coconut and smarties or M&M's. I thought the best was the choc chips and cornflakes combination.
