Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Refrigeration time: 10-20 minutes

1. Prepare a slice tin by oiling it slightly and lining it with baking paper.

2. Melt the marshmallows, vanilla and butter in a saucepan on very low heat, stirring continuously.

3. Turn off the heat and add the rice bubbles, coconut, cherries and peanuts, mixing with a spatula to combine.

4. Slightly melt the milk chocolate and add it and stir until completely combined. Spread immediately into the slice tin, then place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

5. Cut into individual squares and dust with icing sugar.
