This recipe is another one from the Pampas Pastry Finger Food Recipe sheets.  I’ve just checked to see if Pampas still make sweet tart cases and apparently they do – I just haven’t seen them around lately.  If you can’t buy them you could make your own using pastry sheets.




I found this recipe among the collection and thought it sounded like something kids would like – marshmallows are always a winner. We decided to try it out to see what it tasted like. My daughter made them up and reports back that her girls loved them, but she found them quite bland. Mum must have thought that also, because she changed the biscuits from Digestives to Granitas, which have a bit more texture and flavour. My daughter thinks using Chocolate Ripple biscuits would be a good way to add extra flavour for adults. We’ll try that next time.

Marshmallow Balls PS


  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 1 packet Granita biscuits (or Chocolate Ripple) – finely crushed
  • 1 cup coconut

Mix the milk, butter, biscuits & coconut together. Break into pieces and roll into a ball, flatten out and wrap mixture around a marshmallow. Refrigerate until set.
