A home-made Wagon Wheel - two chocolate-dipped biscuits sandwich a marshmallow and jam filling. While we used bought chocolate wheaten biscuits here, you can easily make your own.

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup (150g) caster (superfine) sugar
  • 3 teaspoons gelatine
  • ¼ cup (60ml) water
  • ⅓ cup (110g) strawberry jam, warmed, strained
  • 32 milk chocolate wheaten biscuits (400g) (see tips)

Method

  • 1
    Whisk sugar and ¼ cup (60ml) water in a medium bowl with an electric mixer for 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
  • 2
    Place gelatine and the boiling water in a small jug; stir until gelatine has dissolved. Pour hot gelatine mixture into sugar syrup. Whisk on high speed for 10 minutes or until mixture is thick and fluffy and bowl is cool to touch.
  • 3
    Spoon marshmallow filling into a piping bag fitted with a 2cm plain tube.
  • 4
    Spread jam onto plain side of half the biscuits. Pipe marshmallow over jam; top with remaining biscuits.

Notes

You need to buy two 200g packets milk chocolate wheaten biscuits for this recipe. If the marshmallow sets too quickly before you're ready to use it, return it to the mixer bowl with about 1 tablespoon of boiling water and beat it for 1 minute. Wagonettes will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
