Preparation time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Home kit: microwave, two small microwave proof mixing bowls (not metal) and a wire cake rack.

Away kit: Serving plate

Serves: 10


  • 200g bag of pink and white marshmallows
  • 60g chocolate drops
  • 20 rich tea biscuits
  • 150g milk chocolate


First half

Divide the marshmallows roughly in half. Chop one half into small chunks, and gently heat the other half in the microwave on low power (defrost works) until melted. Leave to cool a bit and then add the chopped up ones and the chocolate drops, mix together into a goo. Use said goo to stick the rich tea biscuits together, spread the filling right to the edges.

Second half

Gently melt the milk chocolate, again in the microwave using short bursts and stirring in between. Pour the melted chocolate over the biscuit sandwiches and leave to set on the wire rack with foil underneath to catch the drips.

Full time results

Serve with a nice cup of tea
