Crunchies are one of South Africa’s favourite biscuit treats. Let’s be honest there is nothing quite like a crunchie with your cup of tea or coffee! You can also crumble these biscuits over ice cream for dessert or dip it in a sherry if you want to be a bit naughty. This time I added some walnuts to this biscuit mix and I am sure it will be a real winner this festive season.
