TW: Recipe - I shall call them Raspberry and Custard Bites

Okay so this recipe is a derivative of this Oreo and marshmallow recipe that taradiane posted about the other day.

I was looking for a non-choccie option and came up with this.

Raspberry and Custard Bites

  • 3 standard packets custard cream biscuits (I used Morrisons value ones and it's one packet of the three pack or one and a half of the two pack).
  • 2 packets marshmallows (400g)
  • 40g butter
  • 2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam (I used Morrisons value again :))

Method (for Highlander fans ... almost posted this with Methos instead of Method ;))
  1. Put the custard creams in a food processor and blitz until fine.
  2. Take a small shallow baking tray (11x7x1inch is the size I used) and line with foil, shiny side in.
  3. Put the marshmallows and butter in a microwave proof dish and microwave on full power for between 1.30 and 2 mins.
  4. Pour the biscuit crumbs into the melted marshmallow mixture and combine thoroughly.
  5. Press half of the mixture into the base of the lined tin.
  6. Microwave the jam so that it is easily spreadable.
  7. Spread the mixture in the tin with the jam.
  8. Top with the rest of the marshmallow mixture and press down.
  9. Put in the fridge for about ten mins until cold.
  10. Turn out onto a board and peel off the foil, then cut into bite size pieces (I tend to get about 40ish out of the recipe).
  11. Eat ;)

I am taking them to church for Mothering Sunday coffee after the service so I have put them in paper bun cases and that's probably the easiest way to stop them sticking together in a tin.

They'll keep for about two to three days in an air tight tin.
