I looooooove fifteens. I didn't really start loving them until I was about 17 or 18. I was buying some dessicated coconut for another recipe and decided I just had to make some of these too!
There's really not much to these by way of ingredients or work, in fact this is a fantastic recipe for cooking with little kids (which I've done before). And they taste fantastic. I divided the biscuit and marshmallow mix in half to make a batch for Rob without the cherries and coconut, but the recipe should be as it is here:
Make 20-24 small biscuits
15 Digestive biscuits (like Graham crackers)
15 glacé cherries
15 marshmallows (best with the big pink and whites, the little ones don't work as well for this recipe)
2/3 cup condensed milk
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1. Place the biscuits in a large ziplock bag and smash into fine crumbs.
2. Mix the biscuit crumbs, cherries and marshmallows in a bowl.
3. Slowly mix in the condensed milk until the mix all comes together into a ball.
4. Roll into a sausage shape (or 2 if it's easier) about 2" thick.
5. Spread the coconut over a counter of board and roll the "sausage" over it until it's covered.
6. Wrap in a double layer of cling film and refridgerate for 2-3 hours to help it set.
7. Unwrap and slice into biscuits.
