Fifteens

2014-09-04 20.28.41Now I had never heard of fifteens until last Sunday. At our family barbecue my cousin had just got back from his very own cracking wedding in Poland, and his lovely wife Aneta had made us the most amazing little baked things nestled in a cute little tin. They were crunchy, sweet and coconutty – we were blown away by these tasty little morsels! She told me they were a very famous traybake that she’d learnt from her Irish friend, and was so surprised that none of us had ever heard of them. But now we know, and I am shouting to the world all about this wonderfully simply no-bake treat. The clue is in the name, and they are just too ridiculously easy and scrumptious that they will no doubt be made aaaaall the time from now on.

Ingredients

  • 15 digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 15 marshmallows, halved (I used about 30 mini marshmallows as I had to use em up)
  • 15 glacé cherries, halved
  • 150g condensed milk
  • 15g desiccated coconut

Method

Mix together your crushed digestives, marshmallows and glacé cherries in a large bowl until combined.

2014-09-03 18.58.52Pop a layer of cling film on your kitchen top, sprinkle liberally with coconut and spoon your mixture onto it to make a rough sausage shape. Use the cling film to roll it into a tight sausage, and leave it in the fridge overnight to firm up.

2014-09-04 20.34.21They fit so snugly into my new french biscuit tin that I wangled from my (too kind) manager, and are sitting in the fridge ready to be taken to work tomorrow to raise money for a charity called Wet Wheels. Who the heck knows what that charity is for. Hazarding a guess, wheelchair users having trouble in the rain?? No idea, but it means non uniform day and copious amounts of baked goods. TGIF!
