Ingredients

Shortcake
125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup self raising flour

 

Caramel
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
4 tbsp golden syrup
115g butter
1/2 cup sugar
 
Marshmallow
2 tsp gelatine
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp strawberry essence flavouring
2 drops of red or pink food colouring
 
Chocolate topping
125g good quality dark chocolate (i.e. 70% cocoa), melted

Method

Shortcake

Preheat an oven to 180°C and line a 20cm x 30cm tin with baking paper.

Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and creamy. Mix in the flour until it's soft and dough-like, then press evenly into the base of the tin.
Bake for 20 minutes until cooked, then take out of the oven and leave to cool.

 

Caramel

Combine all ingredients in a medium sized saucepan and heat gently. Once the butter has melted, continue to cook the caramel on a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Spread evenly over the base and allow to cool.

 

Marshmallow

Sprinkle the gelatine over the boiling water and stir to dissolve. Beat sugar, flavour, colour and gelatine on high with an electric beater for a few minutes until the mixture is light, fluffy and nearly cooled. Spread evenly over the caramel and base, then place in the fridge to set.

 

When the marshmallow is completely set, spread over the chocolate and return to fridge. Cut into pieces once set.
