My kind of Kingston


Not one to blow my own horn, well not too loudly anyway... however on this occasion I feel that it is warranted. I have invented something so spectacular, something so ingenious that I may have to shut down this blog to keep up with the hoards of fans I'm likely to get once I tell you about my latest feat of brilliance.


For the non-Aussies, it may not be clear why this is so fantastic but if you have ever tried a Kingston biscuit you will know that it is impossible to keep a packet in your pantry for more than oh 12 hours. Right?


Well yesterday in a flash of creativity I created my very own Kingston biscuit only it's better. Seriously. Masterchef watch out because I am now the champion. Those two blonde bogans with the patronising piercing voices from QLD who are famous for 4 ingredient recipes also need to watch out because this brilliant invention requires only 2 ingredients.


ANZAC biscuits and Nutella. Genius.


Get 2 ANZAC biscuits and put 2 spoonfuls of Nutella between them. That is all you need to do. Now, step away from the computer, go to your pantry and try it. What kind of Aussie mum has a pantry lacking ANZAC biscuits? Now get your Nutella and get going.
All those size zero glamazon mummies with your 26 children in matching outfits, your perfect show homes and your handmade, home made fancy pants everything can go and sulk in the corner with your pipe cleaners and home made spelt pretzels because this invention trumps everything.

I dare you to come back here and tell me I'm not not a genius.
edited to add:
I've had quite a few emails from some of my overseas readers. Now don't panic. You will not miss out on my genius because the ANZAC spirit is lacking in your "cookie" aisle. Yes we say biscuit and you say cookie. Click here for my previous ANZAC post, if you scroll down you will see I have a really dead easy recipe for you to make the ANZAC biscuits at home. Even I can't ruin them, easy easy easy.

  2. I can manage the nutella, we get it here. But I might have to look at the baked goods section carefully for ANZAC biscuits. U might have to give me alternatives.

    Oh God, today is not a good day. Currently being tortured by the smell of Banana Walnut cake emanating from my kitchen. I am making two batches and both are gifts. Now the picture of Anzella ( a probably good name for your creation), is not helping in the least.

    But hats off to you, I am sure many moms are thanking you for this. Standing ovation to u, my dear, for your discovery!!!

  7. Oh what an amazing victory! You should be loads proud. Not sure if any of our waistlines will thank you, but the little ones will get a treat in their lunch box tomorrow and thank you! Check out my rather impractical recipe which fell into my inbox yesterday. Funny!

  13. Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum!.

    4 Ingredients is nightmarish. Those books truly terrify me.

  14. Oh, NOW I understand about 'Kingstons' (from your Mama Mia comment!).

    I just cracked open an extra large, giant-sized jar of nutella the other day. A brand new fresh jar is sexeeeee. None of the dried crust around the edges.

    And I have never seen the blonde bogans in real life, but 'Double Take' did a hilarious spoof of them tonight, so I know what you're talking about! They sound incredible (and not in a good way).

  15. Carolyn, write a book called the 2 Ingredients, I'll be the first to buy it!!

  16. You are definitely a genius! You also have incredibly strong willpower. You can actually keep a packet of Kingstons in the cupboard for 12 hours? You're a bigger woman than me. (Metaphorically of course because literally I am a bigger woman than you...because of the Kingstons of course :)

  18. Hi Carolyn,
    I love this! And yes you are a genius. It has become a favourite treat in our house. I have made my own spin on this though - you will have to check out this post on my blog and give my version a go and tell me what you think!

  19. I am going to have to try this one but I don't think I will be thanking you! My poor waistline.

  20. Let me get back onto that ANZAC bikkie recipe... the Nutella's no problem but the rolled oats in France mustn't be the same as the Aussie ones!! When I read your blog - I realise how much I miss Aussie humour!
