This is a classic NZ recipe. The biscuits must be made with butter, iced with a rich chocolate icing and topped with half a walnut. They're NOT Afghans if you omit those steps.

Used unsalted butter instead of "stork", and only had 40g cornflakes left. I liked the crunch from the cornflakes but didn't like the way each mouthful turned to dust. Wouldn't make again.
