Method

  1. Place margarine and marshmallows into a large ceramic bowl and microwave for 50 seconds on 50% power. Stir well until you have a smooth texture. If still lumpy put back in microwave for a further 30 seconds on 50% power.
  2. Fold coconut and dried fruit into marshmallow mix.
  3. Pour rice bubbles into bowl and combine well.
  4. Spread mixture into a slab tin (18cm x 28cm) that has been coated with cooking spray. Use the back of a metal spoon that has been dipped in hot water to help spread the mixture evenly. Refrigerate until set then cut into 20 slices.

NOTE: This slice is best kept in the refrigerator.

Variation: Replace mixed dried fruit with dried fruit medley (Angus Park®)

Or for an alternative to White Christmas only use white marshmallows in the mix.

Not suitable to be frozen.
