When it comes to Australian desserts, it doesn’t get any more famous than a classic chocolate ripple cake! Made from a packet of Arnott’s Choc Ripple biscuits smothered in whipped cream, chilled overnight… and then decorated with all your favourite Australian chocolates and berries!
This is one to make ahead of the day, great fun to make with the kids – or they can make it themselves and have fun decorating it!

Jazz up the classic Chocolate Ripple Cake for Australia Day. Load it with Maltesers, popcorn and dripping with caramel sauce…..ahhh, sigh!
ANZAC stands for “Australian and New Zealand Army Corps” and whilst ANZAC biscuits are traditionally made to commemorate ANZAC Day on the 25th April each year, they are a classic Australian bake for any time. ANZAC biscuits and slices are super popular among Australian families… and make a great lunchbox treat!
* Please note that our ANZAC recipes have been approved for publishing by the Australian Department of Veterans Affairs.
Could you get any more Australian than ANZAC biscuits? Whip up a batch in no time – great with a cuppa for morning or afternoon tea – and everyone loves them!
Here’s a twist on a classic! Take ANZAC’s to a new level with flaked almonds and chocolate chips for an change…..still super easy, just more delicious!
And another variation….a one bowl wonder, still with that favourite munchy, crunchy flavour, and the kids will love the added chocolate chips.
Made from pantry staples and similar to traditional ANZAC biscuits, a slice can be quicker than biscuits but I’m sure they will be eaten just as quick!
Milo Inspired Australian Recipes
Milo is a malted milk powder made by Nestle. It’s most often used in hot and cold drinks mixed with milk…. however it’s also AMAZING in baking recipes! From slices to biscuits, fudge to balls and more!
Decadent as a dessert or sweet treat, this recipe has a light and creamy chocolate mousse texture that no mousse lover could resist. Not a bad effort from the humble Milo tin lurking in the cupboard…..
The simplest pantry ingredients can be whipped into a kid pleaser in just 20 minutes. Jazz them up with a dab of white chocolate and sprinkles on top.
Party time for kids of all ages (that means adults too!) These are so easy to make, and so easy to eat….and a good way to include the humble Weetbix to fill em’ up too!
A no fuss, super easy recipe (that’s what I like!!!!), and great to pop into lunchboxes. The kids will love them when you tell them they’re made with Milo!
Another one the kids will devour with with true Milo energy! All pantry staples, the kids can help mix and roll ’em. Then enjoy!
Calling chocoholics….using an Aussie favourite, Tim Tams, and chocolate, this is a foolproof microwave fudge – you simply cannot go wrong!
