I was asked to bring traybakes to a friends house for a supper party. Running short on time I knew baking was out of the question. So I settled on 15s one of the easiest recipes ever created for making a sweet traybake type delight, that's as perfect with coffee as brought on a picnic.
The recipe once made never needs to be looked up because it's literally 15 of three ingredients bound in condensed milk & rolled in desiccated coconut. From start to finish it takes 15minutes.
When I first made this I used to spent hour chopping cherries & Marshmallows. Then one Christmas my brother asked me to teach him to make it & put off by all the chopping I found he'd mixed the ingredients whole, leaving the cutting of the log at the end to size them. His method is
Foolproof & since then I've never chopped again. He also added the white chocolate.
What I love about these is that they are perfect for bringing to someone's house as a gift as they can be brought in the roll & slices there. For the same reason they work well on camping trips or picnics.
My brother loves to give them as presents.
We have found children love to make
These bit they will need a bit of help
With the mixing. You can mix them with a spoon but I find either a mixer on low with a dough hook or my hands to be the best way.
15 digestive biscuits crushed to a fine powder (I do mine in a magi mix but children like to crush them with a
Rolling pin in a Ziplock bag)
15 squares of white chocolate (optional)
1 small tin of condensed milk
desiccated coconut for rolling
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined
The mixture should be very sticky & hold its shape but not runny, dry or sloppy.
Lay out a double thickness of baking paper
Spread coconut across the
Middle of it even out with your hands until you have a fine layer
Spoon your mixture into a long type shape along the coconut
Using your hands ensure the entire log is lightly covered with coconut
Then roll the log in the baking paper, twisting the ends to secure and place in the fridge to set for approx an hour
When ready to serve cut the log into slices
That's it for now...
