Five minute mango ice cream and puppy cookies

29 Jul

Freeze some mango chunks and blend with some sugar and cream and what do you get? Five minute mango ice cream! Smooth and creamy soft serve style. Freeze for a bit to make it scoopable. We just ate it right out of the blender. Probably easier to make with a food processor.


Doggy shaped cookies made with Ovaltine! Ovaltine is a delicious chocolate malt drink mix. Usually we mix it with warm milk and sugar and it’s a great hot chocolate replacement. My bottle is the European formula which may make a difference in whether it has sugar or not. The cookies were based off of the doggy cookies made out of Horlicks so that’s why mine are darker.


Here’s the original recipe:
Horlicks Puppy Cookies (for humans)
(makes about 48 cookies)

180g butter, soften at room temperature (1 1/2 sticks)
80g Horlicks (original flavour)
200g top flour or cake flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
100g chocolate chips
some chocolate rice
some Koko Krunch

1. Pre-heat oven to 140deg C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
2. Sieve top flour, corn flour and milk powder.
3. Cream butter and Horlicks for about three minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.
4. Put in top flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form
5. Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
6. Insert two pieces of Koko Krunch to form the ‘ears’, chocolate rice for the “eyes”, and a chocolate chip in the centre for the ‘nose’.
7. Bake at 140 deg C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.
8. Leave to cool on wire rack before storing in an airtight container.

I substituted Ovaltine for Horlicks and added about 1/2 cup of white sugar because I like my cookies sweet. The original recipe does not make very sweet cookies. I also made mine bigger and cut out ears because that brand of cereal is not available in the U.S. and I couldn’t find a replacement. Since mine are bigger, I made only about 24 cookies.

Woof woof! O_O
