Warning: this Marshmallow Fridge Traybake is very sweet, very gooey and very delicious! It’s got a digestive and coconut biscuit base that is topped with caramel and marshmallow and delivers a serious sugar rush.
It’s another no-bake traybake and although it takes a bit of time to cook the caramel layer, it’s pretty easy to put together. And very quick to disappear in our house. It’s also a useful recipe to have as it uses up the remainder of a tin of condensed milk that you may have opened for another recipe.
Second warning: this is really sticky to work with, especially when you get to the marshmallow swirl, so my advice is to work quickly and be prepared to get melted marshmallow stuck to places other than the caramel layer.
Another non-traybake post this week. And it does require you to make pastry. (Or you could buy ready-made pastry, there’s no judgment here.)
These are called Marshmallow Fudge Tartlets, but it’s more of a ‘Marshmallow Jam Caramel Tartlet’. But the first option is shorter and snappier, so I’m sticking with that. The combination of crisp pastry, tart jam, sweet marshmallow and caramel is a winner.
I always called this traybake Caramel Squares, but it is known by a variety of names. My recipe books both have a very similar recipe called Caramel Crumble, which is what I have made today. It is also known as Millionaire’s Shortbread because, presumably, plain shortbread is considered too ordinary for millionaires?! Who knows?
Whatever name you choose, the combination of shortbread + caramel + chocolate is one of my favourites.
