Melting Moments or Yo Yo's are sold in pretty much every Melbourne cafe. But often they're dry, stale and not worth eating. Good Melting Moments are crumbly, buttery and sandwiched with a soft icing of citrus or passionfruit. They're old-fashioned, quick, and a home-made classic.

Everyone loves Melting Moments!


250g butter, softened
3/4 cup icing sugar, sifted
