Unclear. Allegedly first made by a Ruby Neenish in the Australian town of Grong Grong, New South Wales circa 1913. Neenish supposedly ran low on cocoa when preparing for an "unexpected" shower tea, and made do with half-chocolate, half-white icing. A German or Viennese origin, via nienich, has also been suggested.
