The Monte Carlo biscuit is a timeless classic. This home made Monte Carlo Recipe will give the shop brought biscuits a run for their money!

Monte Carlo’s are an Aussie biscuit manufactured by Arnott’s Biscuits. While the biscuits are Australian, they were named after the city of Monte Carlo.

Australia has a bit of a love story when it comes to biscuits. We love a SAO with vegemite, Iced VoVo and Monte Carlo. The Monte Carlo biscuit has been around since 1926, with one of the earliest Arnotts biscuit tours captured on film in 1951.
