This Marshmallow slice was made by my grandparents and was always popular with the children. White and pink (depending on how much colouring was added), we loved the texture and sweetness.
|½ cup||Water, boiling|
|½ tsp||Strawberry flavouring|
|2 drops||Red food colouring|
- Preheat an oven to 180C. Line a 20cm x 30cm tin with baking paper.
- Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and creamy. Stir through the flour. Press mixture evenly into base of tin evenly. Bake for 20 minutes until cooked. Cool.
- Sprinkle gelatine over boiling water and stir to dissolve. Beat sugar, flavour, colour and gelatine on high with an electric beater for a few minutes or until the mixture is light, fluffy and nearly cooled. Spread over base. Set in fridge.
- When marshmallow is completely set, spread over the chocolate and return to fridge. Cut into pieces when cold.
This slice makes great picnic fare along with these other recipes:
