How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 5 oven trays with baking paper.
  2. Separate lollies into colours. Place the different colours into separate plastic bags. Place a tea towel over the lollies. Use a rolling pin or meat mallet to pound until the lollies are finely crushed.
  3. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar, vanilla bean paste and golden syrup together until pale and creamy. Add the flour and stir with a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion until the dough comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Divide into 2 portions and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  4. Roll 1 dough portion out on a floured surface to a 4mm-thick disc. Use an 8cm star-shaped biscuit cutter to cut stars from the dough. Place 6 biscuits on 1 lined tray. Use a 4cm star-shaped cutter to cut the centre from each biscuit. Use a thin straw to cut a small hole in the top of each biscuit.
  5. Bake for 4-5 minutes. Spread the crushed lollies into the star-shaped hole in each biscuit. Bake for a further 4-5 minutes or until biscuits are golden and lollies have melted. Set aside on tray to cool. Repeat with remaining dough portions and lollies.
  6. Thread coloured ribbon through the hole in each biscuit to decorate.
