This delicious sweet is perfect for those workpotlucks because it’s quick and easy to whip up the night before and doesn’t break the bank. This particular recipe isn’t suitable for vegetarians or vegans but could easily be adapted by taking away the and using non-dairy and .
The whole process should take under 45 minutes (including the washing up!)
100g mini marshmallows
300g dark cooking chocolate
35ml(brandy would also work)
Pinch of ground All Spice
(red and green make for an extra festive feel!)
Raisins and any other(cranberries would work well)
Roughly chop up the glacé cherries.
Pop them in a dish and pour over the rum (I gave a generous slosh rather than a measured 35ml).
Add some of the ground spice and stir together.
Melt marg, chocolate and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat (stirring continuously).
Remove from heat once melted.
Stir in crushed biscuits, marshmallows and pour in the rum and cherry mixture.
Spoon the mixture into a container. I used cupcake moulds but a square 8”dish would also work or whatever you have to hand!
Leave to cool and then pop in the fridge to set fully.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and throw a cherry on top for the perfect finish!
