This is one of my dads recipes! When I was a young lass, my dad would buy Arnotts Chocolate Royal Biscuits. They were a round biscuit base with a dab of jam in the middle topped with marshmallow and then coated in chocolate. This slice was my dads version of the delicious biscuit! I have adapted his recipe for a more healthier version.
Choc Marshmallow Slice
Preheat 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4
1 1/2 cups almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup rice malt syrup (or maple syrup)
150g coconut oil (melted)
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl with the melted coconut oil and rice malt syrup. Press into a Swiss-Roll tin and bake for 10-15 mins or until golden. Leave to cool.
Jam Filling Ingredients:
250g frozen strawberries
1 T water
2 T chia seeds
While biscuit base is in the oven place strawberries and water into a saucepan over low to medium heat and until jam like consistency, about 15-20 mins. Take off heat and stir through chia seeds. Put aside to cool and thicken. Once cool spread over biscuit base.
Marshmallow Filling Ingredients:
1 cup rice malt syrup
1/2 cup water
10g gelatine (dissolve in 1/4 cup water)
10ml lemon juice (2 tsps)
Add water, rice malt syrup and dissolved gelatine into a saucepan and place on medium to high heat and boil for 10 mins, keep an eye on it and make sure that it does not boil over. Stir occasionally. Transfer into a bowl and allow to cool for roughly 5 mins. Add lemon juice and beat with a mixer or blender until light and fluffy. Spread over the jam topping and allow to set in the fridge.
1 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup rice malt syrup
Make the chocolate in a double boiler, or create a water bath using a heat safe bowl and a pot of boiling water. Whisk the cacao powder, coconut oil, rice malt syrup and vanilla until well combined. Pour over slice and return to fridge until set. Then cut into bite size pieces.
2 x 100g block of 90% dark chocolate ( I prefer Lindt)
1 T coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or create a water bath using a heat safe bowl and a pot of boiling water. Once chocolate starts to melt add the vanilla and coconut oil. Mix well and pour over slice and return to the fridge until set. Cut into bite size pieces.
I look forward to hearing if you bake this slice. Believe me you are going to love it! This is another good slice to freeze and have a Choc Mallow Frozen Sandwich!
