NAIDOC week biscuits

I’m getting ready for NAIDOC week and in the process created these biscuits (or cookies if you prefer). They have gone viral so I thought I should write a short post on them. I am yet to come up with a Torres Strait Islander Flag equivalent.

My local IGA didn’t have red velvet cake mix but I think this would work too.

1 chocolate cake mix 
1/2 cup oil
1 egg

1 red velvet cake mix or vanilla with 1 teaspoon of red food colouring
1/2 cup oil
1 egg

Mix each cake mix with 1 egg and 1/2 cup oil into a dough, 
roll into balls (I found 1/2-3/4 teaspoon amount to be big enough) then join the 2 colours. 
Flatten slightly. 
Add a caramel whirl/button in the centre
bake for approx 10min depending on oven at 180C

For an egg-less option I’m told you could try:
Applesauce. Use a quarter cup of unsweetened applesauce in place of one egg in most baking recipes. Or 
Banana. Use a quarter cup of mashed banana (from about half a banana) instead of one egg when baking. …

    1. 36-48 biscuits- However I needed 3 bags of mixed twirls (from IGA) to get enough caramel ones for the centres. If you can get a bag of caramel twirls only or yellow m&ms then only one bag would be needed.
