Fifteens - No bake recipe
Fifteens are delicious but beware they are sweet and a bit rich.
It is one of the simplest tray bakes to prepare.
Fifteen digestive biscuits, crushed,
Fifteen large marshmallows, quartered,
Fifteen glace cherries, halved or chopped,
One small can of condensed milk (160ml)
Mix these ingredients together in a large bow until you have a soft dough like consistency.
75 g flaked or desiccated coconut
Spread out a layer of coconut on a sheet of aluminium foil or greaseproof paper and using your hands form the dough into a long sausage shape, short and fat for big portions or long and thin for bite sized pieces. Roll the dough back and forth until reasonably well coated in coconut and then use the foil or greaseproof to wrap the sausage.
Chill for at least an hour or overnight and then slice into pieces about an inch thick.
