One of my favourite recipes that I have found in recent months is what I now use for my Marshmellow Biscuit Bites.
So simple...if a little sticky...and only needs a handful of ingredients
The original recipe can be found HERE.
I made a couple of changes to the process which I will detail below...
- 400g custard cream biscuits (or any other biscuit of your choice)
- 400g large marshmallows
- 50g unsalted butter, diced
- 50g glacé cherries, sliced (optional but definitely nicer with)
- Whatever you wish to decorate them with...chocolate, sprinkles etc
- Line a 8x8" tin with clingfilm (much easier to remove later just make sure it overhangs)
- Place the biscuits into a bag and bash the living daylights out of them....or use a food processor if you have one available.
- Slice the glace cherries and mix them in the the biscuit crumbs
- In a microwaveable bowl add the marshmellows and butter and nuke on high for a minute or so until the marshmellows have puffed up. Remove from the microwave and stir, this will break the melty marshmellows down and help the butter melt into the mix.
- Now add the biscuits/cherry mix to the marshmellows and stir in...this is VERY sticky...also need to do this a quick as possible as the mixture will start to stiffen up
- Once mixed pour into the prepared tin and flatten down to level out and fill to the corners (I find another piece of clingfilm over the top helps prevent hands being covered in the stickiness).
- Leave to set on the side or in the fridge (I like to leave it overnight).
- Once set tip out onto a chopping board and remove the clingfilm
- Drizzle the slab of yumminess with melted chocolate and once the chocolate has set you can slice it up into bars or squares.
Perfect for bake sales, parties or just as something in the cupboard to nibble as a treat.
