    This incredibly easy and quick to prepare traybake tastes like heaven on a plate with its marshmallow, coconutty goodness! I like to use a combination of white and pink marshmallows.

    Serves: 20 

    • 15 large marshmallows
    • 15 digestive biscuits, crushed
    • 15 glacé cherries, halved
    • 150ml condensed sweetened milk
    • 75g desiccated coconut

    Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Cut the marshmallows in halves using scissors, and place in a large bowl. Toss with the digestive biscuits and candied cherries. Gradually stir in the sweetened condensed milk until the mixture becomes a soft, moist dough. It should not be too dry, so you may need to add a bit more milk.
    2. Spread a generous layer of coconut out on a clean surface, and place the dough on top of it. Use your hands to form the dough into a long thick sausage, making sure it is well coated with coconut. Wrap in a double layer of cling film, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.
    3. Unwrap the long piece of dough, and cut into slices to serve.

    I have been making this for years but I make it in a tray and top and tail it with chocolate. I line a baking tray with foil then pour some melted chocolate in to form a thin base. Leave it to harden then spread the mixture on top. Leave it to harden then spread another thin layer of chocolate on the top. It freezes well and I always keep some in the freezer for when friends come round.  -  07 Oct 2009

    If you don't like coconut you can make it in a tray lined with (foil first then) chocolate. Put mixture on top once choc has set then add another layer of choc on top. Very yummy!  -  07 Oct 2009
