This is a popular Easter activity to do with the kids because it’s quick and easy and they love it! It’s easy to set up, you only require a few ingredients and can decorate them with whatever you like. 

The icing will set hard on the biscuits after about 30 minutes, so make sure you decorate them while the icing is still soft. For a dairy-free alternative, you can replace the milk with some warm water. Once made, the biscuits can be stored in an air-tight container for a few days. 


  • milk arrowroot biscuits
  • sprinkles or lollies to decorate
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • food colouring


  1. Mix icing sugar and milk together in a bowl. 
  2. Separate the icing mixture into smaller-sized bowls and add the food colouring.
  3. Using a knife, spread the icing on the biscuits and decorate before the icing sets.
  4. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

      You can buy dairy free arrowroot biscuits in the health food section.

    Hi, I made these and 3 is way too much milk. I remade with 1 and it worked out good. Thank you for the great idea.

    In terms of storage in an airtight container, does this then need to be refrigerated? To use the icing after storing, do I just re-mix it to loosen it up before frosting on the arrowroot biscuits? I need to make the icing in advance, for a playgroup activity, as I won’t have time to make it the morning of. Thank you!

    What would work for dairy free icing instead dog milk? Coconut milk? Almond milk?

      You can try any type of dairy-free milk. I can’t recommend any because I haven’t used any before.
