Ingredients

  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg white
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups (240g) pure icing sugar
  • Black gel food colouring, to tint
  • Large and small biscuits (such as Arnott’s Marie and Oreo biscuits, split, cream removed)
  • Chocolate-coated almonds, to decorate
  • Black sugar pearls, to decorate
  • 50g white fondant icing
  • Red or pink fondant icing, to decorate (optional)

Method

STEP 1

Whisk egg white and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the icing sugar, in batches, until a smooth paste forms. Use food colouring to tint grey. Spread royal icing over biscuits. Top large biscuits with chocolate-coated almonds and black sugar pearls to make faces. Set aside to set. 

STEP 2

Roll out fondant icing on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar to a 1mm-thick disc. Use a 2cm round cutter to cut out discs. Brush one side of the icing discs with a little water and attach to the small biscuits to make ears. Use a little of the remaining royal icing to attach koala faces to the ears. Use red or pink fondant icing to make bows to decorate, if desired.

At Coles we like to feed all Australians and this Easter we are raising awareness for our beloved koalas. Did you know that approximately 80% of koala habitat has been lost and at the current rate of decline, some species of koala could be extinct by 2050?

To help support Aussie Ark conserve and protect Australia’s iconic koala population, we’ve launched our first-ever children’s e-book, The Picky Little Koala. Follow the koala on her adventure to find the perfect leaf, all thanks to the support of Aussie Ark and their work in preserving and expanding koala habitats.

For every unique download of the book Coles will donate $1 to Aussie Ark*.
