Messina Additions - Anzac Biscuits

At Messina HQ we make everything from scratch. Each flavour of gelato has it’s own unique recipe and every addition is produced and baked in house by our team of pastry chefs.

Our Anzac biscuits are no exception.  The simple golden biscuits made of oats, coconut, butter and oozy golden syrup are hand mixed, baked until the perfect crunch has been reached and smashed up into clusters, all before they are added to our golden syrup and coconut gelato.

Watch our 6th additions video in the series (below), to see our baked Anzac biscuits in action and if you’re in a DIY mood, check out our super easy and super forgiving biscuit recipe, below.

Our once a year ANZAC BISCUIT gelato special will be in all stores on the 25th April, for one week.
