Chocolate Afghan Biscuits

Are you looking for a sweet afternoon treat? Bake these delicious Chocolate Afghan Biscuits. 

Sometimes I just want to sit on the couch, watch Netflix, with a hot cuppa and chocolate treat. These delicious afghan biscuits hit the spot. They are so soft in texture but so rich in flavour. They are a great way to use up unused cereal but it’s the cream cheese and nutella icing and walnuts on top that give it that extra deliciousness! The recipe makes 15 but you might want to make a double batch because they will be eaten so quick!
