  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line two flat trays with baking paper.
  2. Beat margarine and sugar with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat again.
  3. Add flour and stir well, then fold through the crushed Weet-Bix™.
  4. Place rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared trays, leaving room for spreading. Lightly press a wet finger into the centre of each biscuit, then place a chocolate button in the indentation.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes until golden. Cool on tray for a minute before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Tips

  • You can replace the dark chocolate buttons with milk or white chocolate, or fill the indentations with a spoonful of jam before baking.
