Biscuit wands

Biscuit wands




  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 20 icypole sticks
  • Assorted sprinkles


Preheat oven to 180C.

Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Place sugar in a large bowl, melt butter and pour over sugar.

Stir well, add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

Lightly flour a surface and roll the dough out to 8-10mm thick.

Cut out shapes; use a metal slide/spatula to carefully lift onto prepared trays.

Repeat rolling, cutting and lifting until all dough is used.

Place 5cm apart on trays (I had them too close, see picture) to allow for spreading.

Carefully push an icypole stick into each biscuit.

Bake 15 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from oven, cool slightly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make a simple icing with 1 cup icing and 1-2 teaspoons water. Spread with icing and decorate with sprinkles.

Too much fun


  • Use non-coloured icypole sticks  we got ours from a craft shop. As much as the kids would love coloured sticks, probably not that nutritionally sound.

    Cool idea. Ours melted and lost there shape. If you want to do this with your kids I recommend using a different biscuit base.

      Sorry to hear that your biscuits didn’t turn out right Christine. To help stop the mixture spreading during cooking, wrap the dough in clingfilm and chill until firm before rolling it out. We have added the oven temperature to the recipe instructions.
