Milo Chocolate Chips Cookies


Early this year Milo was put on the spotlight for counterfeit.  But consumers have been assured that Milo sold in Singapore is safe as it is manufactured here.
Yes!!!  Me and my boys are fan of Milo.  My boys love it in cold.  But for me, I like it in hot and to go with a banana for breakfast or tea break.

When Zoe announced that the September theme for Little Thumbs Up is Milo, I was liked ‘Huh! Milo?”  I never knew that Milo could be used for baking.   Well ok, I started to check it out on internet and to my surprised that Milo is so versatile and not just for beverage alone.  You can make so many things from Milo. 
 This is my first time using milo to bake cookies.   It was a wonderful experience as the cookies turned out to be so delicious and well liked. 
I have baked a few rounds of this recipe adapted from and I also using this recipe to conduct a baking lesson along with 2 lovely sisters in church, for a group of under privileged kids that runs by Mercy Centre, a voluntarily organisation. 
I really enjoyed and had a great time baking with these kids.

Here’s the recipe and it’s definitely a keeper!
