Quick tangy tasty recipes of Monaco biscuits

Last week, we had a small get-together at my place. On a nice lazy Sunday, at 5.00 pm, with sun flashing mild rays of light, the air around was getting nice and breezy. I was sitting in the kitchen, chitchatting and my mom was preparing tea. A pack of Monaco, kept in the shelf, attracted my eyes. And then what, a simple recipe tempted me to decorate the biscuits. What a perfect timing it was! Bang on!

Usually you would dip them in your cup of tea or coffee and eat an entire packet of Monaco. Yeah, they are that much tasty. Monaco biscuits leave behind a salty tango taste in the mouth. Today, you get them in many flavors and with added ingredients. The simply salted ones taste the best. But Monaco biscuits aren’t just the ‘chai’ time biscuits. Naah they are more than that. Right?

Talking about simply salted Monaco biscuits, they are the party appetizers. You can make them taste the way you want. Although one full pack of round, salted, crispy Monaco biscuits fulfill your ‘chai’ time hunger, they are a perfect snack in-between the meals.
