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!
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
Grease a 19cm x 29cm lamington pan. Combine biscuits and butter in bowl. Press evenly over base of prepared pan; refrigerate until firm.
