    What? Your country doesn't sell Milo?

    Make your own Milo!



    • 100ml rice malt syrup
    • 25g salted butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
    • 1.5-2 teaspoons raw/dutch processed cacao powder


    1. Have a sheet of parchment ready, for a quick turn out of the toffee.
    2. Melt your butter in a medium heat cast iron/stainless steel frying pan.
    3. Add your rice syrup and stir them together until combined and bubbling.
    4. Let the rice syrup and butter bubble away slowly together for ~10 minutes. As soon as you detect a change to a darker golden colour, get it onto the baking sheet ASAP.
    5. Leave on a baking sheet to harden for 1/2 hour.
    6. Break shards of the praline up. Add your vanilla powder and cacao and blitz together for 30 seconds until a fine chocolate sand has formed.
    7. Pop it in a jar and it will keep nicely for a couple of weeks.
