Happy Tummies Marshmallow Surprise


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.
