More-ish chocky bikkies

This is what I had with my cuppa this morning:

The recipe was in the magazine in the Weekend Australian newspaper, first weekend in September. Fast and furious, no blender or mixer needed, and the bikkies turn out really well. They were contributed by a Mr David Herbert, and whoever he may be, I say thank you, sir!
