Recipe For Chocolate Horlicks Chews

The original malted Horlicks came into production in 1873 and was marketed as a food for invalids. This might explain why every time I have an operation I crave a horlicks milkshake. I have used their light chocolate variety to make these chocolate horlicks chews.

Head straight on to the recipe for Chocolate Horlicks Chews ♥

For as long as I can remember I wore a watch. That is until I went to Australia in 2006. I had a very short trip planned and wanted to ensure I did not suffer from jetlag. Friends suggested melatonin but my Doctor reckons it does not work. I then decided to take my watch off a few days before I left, and let the sun rule my sleeping and waking cycles. I got through the entire trip without feeling exhausted and decided to not wear my watch again. Part of this was to help me deal with my chronic insomnia. Last year when I bought my fitness tracker I was concerned I would not be able to get used to having something constantly on my wrist. However I soon got used to the feeling and after a few weeks it stopped bothering me at night.

Yesterday morning I was a bit distracted. It was not until I was in the car that I realized my wrist was unadorned. I had not put my Polar wearable back on after my shower. It felt quite strange all day. Of course, not having it on meant that my steps were not counted and there was no record of the calories I burnt up. I am not exactly counting my calories. But if I were I would be sure to walk the extra mile to be able to enjoy the entire batch of my chocolate horlicks chews. They did not last long after being baked. Given how easy they were to make these will feature quite regularly at tea time in our house.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever tried Horlicks. I wouldn’t know what it tastes like.
    I really hate forgetting to wear my Fitbit pedometer. It’s like the movement that day never happened.

  2. This made me think of my dad as he loved a cup of hot horlicks at bedtime. I wonder if its available in the US as I don’t remember seeing it since I have lived here? I can’t say Id ever heard of using it in a cake recipe but I bet its delicious.

  5. What an interesting recipe! The first time I tried Horlicks was in the UK in 1992. I had never encountered it before. It is available in Australia but is not really party of the Aussie psyche unless you are an ex-pat Brit.
