Crafty Fridays: Strawberry Jelly Slice {Valentine's Day Baking}



I made this slice with Mumma Bear six years ago and it totally flopped. I decided to attempt it again yesterday as consolation for my crap week. This time it was a total success! Yay!


The perfect slice for Valentine's Day baking.


Although, not the best slice to photograph. I apologise for the crap photos, but we all know I'm a bad photographer, it's just not my thing!


Ingredients:
2 cups (250g) sweet biscuit crumbs
125g butter, melted
100g packet pink marshmallows
1 teaspoon gelatine
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon strawberry essence
2/3 cup thickened cream
250g punnet strawberries, halved
2x 100g packets strawberry jelly
2 cups boiling water


Method:
Grease a 19cm x 29cm lamington pan. Combine biscuits and butter in bowl. Press evenly over base of prepared pan; refrigerate until firm. Combine marshmallows, gelatine and milk in saucepan, stir over low heat, without boiling, until marshmallows are melted. Transfer to large bowl, add essence; cool to room temperature.


Whip cream until soft peaks form, fold into marshmallow mixture, pour over base. Place strawberries over marshmallows; refrigerate mixture 30 minutes. Dissolve jelly in boiling water; cool to room temperature. Poor jelly over strawberries, refrigerate until firm before cutting.


Happiness ♥
