Cherry Mallow Slice

Not really a cake or biscuit as such but a quick and easy recipe to make something rather scrumptious. Ideal for parties, snacks or packed lunch boxes.

My friend Sadif gave me this recipe as it is a family favourite and I can see why. It may not look the prettiest but tastes great.

I'm going to try a more grown up version using cranberries instead of glace cherries, hobnobs instead of digestives and rolled in chopped nuts.

Cherry Mallow Slice


80g Glace Cherries
120g Marshmallows
230g Digestive Biscuits
1 Small Tin of Condensed Milk


  1. Chop cherries and marshmallows up and crush the digestive biscuits.
  2. Into a large bowl, put the cherries, marshmallows, digestive biscuits and the tin of condensed milk, and mix.
  3. Roll into a tight cylinder / sausage shape (Can roll in chocolate vermicelli or desiccated coconut if wanted).
  4. Wrap the mixture in cling film and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours however overnight is best.
  5. Remove cling film and cut into slices.
