We always knew it was Christmas when Mum made ‘Marshmallow Surprise’ for us. They were made with condensed milk, plenty of sugar and plain store bought biscuits. We LOVED them. I came up with this alternative so my kids can enjoy the same treat I had as a little girl. They taste remarkably similar and you can whip them up in a few minutes.

Tip: If you are refined sugar free swap the marshmallow for a dried apricot or something similar – for us, it’s Christmas and we’re going to enjoy a treat :-)
I hope you love them as much as we do! Lisa x
