For Harriet…..

PINK (marshmallow squares)

6 weetbix – crushed (or equivalent)
2 cups self raising flour
1.5 cups brown sugar
2 cups coconut
250g butter

combine dry ingredients
melt butter and mix with dry ingredients
press into lined (foil or greaseproof paper) lamington tin
bake for 20 minutes at 200 C (350 F)
let cool and apply topping of choice

Marshmallow Topping
2 cups sugar
1.5 cups COLD water (the gelatine will go spooty if you add it to hot water)
2 dessertspoons gelatine (5 teaspoons)
colouring (pink of course)

boil together for 3 minutes
let cool
grab a good book
beat with electric beater for 30-60 minutes until thick and marshmallowy (10min if you have good beaters like the Sunbeam Beatermix1)
pour onto base

sprinkle with coconut (or some sort of light toppingy thing)

refrigerate for a while (until the marshmallow sets)

Note: it is very hard to cut into squares – you need a good big knife.

1no, I’m not getting kick-backs from Sunbeam.
