MARSHMALLOW WEETBIX SLICES



MARSHMALLOW WEETBIX SLICES
YOU NEED:
3 Weet-Bix crushed...
1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup coconut
3/4 cups sugar


120 gms butter melted
Marshmallows
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 tbs gelatine powder
2 drops pink gel food colouring to taste

WHAT TO DO:
STEP 1 Base:
Combine Weet-Bix, flour, coconut and sugar in a bowl and add melted butter.
STEP 2
Mix well and press into a lined slice tray.
STEP 3
Bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool.
STEP 4
Marshmallow: Dissolve sugar in water in a saucepan over low heat. Soak the gelatine in a little water. Add the soaked gelatine to the sugar and stir until dissolved.
STEP 5
When cool, put mixture in a bowl and beat at high speed adding vanilla and pink colouring. Beat until thick.
STEP 6
Pour over cold biscuit base and sprinkle with chopped nuts or coconut.
STEP 7
Allow to set before cutting into slices. Store in refrigerator.
Notes:
Make sure the marshmallow is quite cool before beating as I have tried to speed up the process and found the mixture separates. Any flavours may be added to the marshmallow. We have tried lemon essence and yellow food colouring.
