Peppermint Marshmallow Squares

Ive lost count how many times, Ive seen this video from Food 24 shared across so many different platforms. Ive been so tempted to give it a go, but usually for me, when one of these videos promise to be ‘quick and easy’ they usually end up being:

a) not as quick as the video promised.

b) 26.8 times more difficult than it seems

c) an absolute disaster

d) all of the above

So I decided to give this one a skip, and instead forwarded the video to my sisters, and friends secretly hoping one of them would try it first and tell me if it was worth the effort or not…but then whilst grocery shopping, I had already had Tennis biscuits and marshmallows in the trolley, and then right at the till, there was a special on PEPPERMINT CRISP! So I grabbed a few, and decided to give it a go.

Ok, step 1 is easy enough: Empty a bag of marshmallows into a microwave safe bowl, add in 2 tblps of butter, and microwave for about 40 seconds, then mix until you get this creamy soft mixture.

Step 2 wasn’t a disaster either. Blend a packet of Tennis biscuits together with a bar of peppermint crisp, and then combine both the ingredients.

Then empty all of this into a large baking tray, or a casserole dish.

Warning: This is extremely sticky, so if kids are helping you, this is the point at which you send them to wash hands…Or as I did promise they can clean out the baking dish if they stand back.

Then you add a crumbled bar of peppermint crisp over the top. According to my children though, dessert isn’t dessert if it doesn’t have oreo-something! So I crushed a few of these and added them over the top. Set in fridge for about 20 minutes and there you go!

A delicious tin full of soft, yummy treats… Next time though, I think I’ll use just one bar of peppermint crisp, half blended with the biscuits, and half for over the top. The strong taste was slightly overpowering. And that being said, I think this would work well as a starting point for so many different flavours… Im thinking maybe caramel, or even coffee flavours!
