Milo Tarts – Buttery Crust filled with our favourite Milo Filling

Milo Dinosaur Tarts – Buttery crust with sweet creamy Milo Filling


Milo Dinosaur Tarts

Do you love Milo? I love it so much as a kid. Especially those from the Milo Trucks because they are always so thick and rich! These Milo tarts bring back memories because they remind me of the Milo from the Milo Truck but in a more solid form. These milo tarts are pretty easy to make! All you need is a tart crust which you can make from scratch (Recipe below) or you can buy them from the stores (Phoon Huat Sells them) The filling is just basically Milo mixed with a little gelatine that helps to set the filling.


I made my own tart crust for this. I baked them in these tart foils that are the perfect size for a tea time snack. They are pretty deep as well so it can hold more Milo filling. Prebake them before pouring the milo filling in it.

Tart Shells

The milo filling for the milo tarts is super easy to make. You wont believe!!! You simply make your own Milo according to the thickness you desire. I like mine extra thick and rich (GAO GAO)! So for one cup of milo, in went 3 heaps of milo powder. I added in half cup water to dissolve the powder and the other half milk. Pour 2 tbsp of cold water over 8g of powdered gelatin to set the powder. After tt, heat up your prepared 1 cup of milo until hot. Add in the gelatin and stir to mix completely. HOW EASY IS THIS! and then you pour the milo into the baked tart shells and leave to set in the fridge completely.
