Sometimes you just want something simple, sweet and pretty to make in a hurry – well this is it, it’s my cheats version of a Marshmallow Slice!
This Marshmallow slice is so easy you can whip it up in no time! Despite there being a few steps involved it is baked in under 30 minutes, allow to set overnight and you will have a delicious, cute and sweet treat to share with friends and family.
The idea came to me last night as I was staring into the cupboard hoping to get hit with some inspiration and my hand kept straying to the open marshmallow packet from my last blog post. As I was mindlessly nibbling them I thought yes – what about a cheats marshmallow slice!
I have a BEAUTIFUL version you can find here – with a delicious buttery shortcake and a massive fluffy marshmallow topping that I definitely recommend you try – but in the mean time next time you want a quick treat try this version.
All it takes is whipping up a quick shortbread base, topping with strawberry jam and then finishing off with a packet of marshmallows and a sprinkling of coconut. Be sure to allow time for the slice to completely cool or you can imagine the mess you might end up with when you try and slice it!
I found slicing it to be really easy, I used a large sharp knife and cleaned with hot water and a dry towel between slices.
Take care making this one, as you are handling the slice tin a few times while it and the ingredients are hot! Both the base and the topping with rise quite a bit but it settles down once cooled.
So that is all! Check out the recipe below.
So there you have it, quick simple and kinda cool! This slice will definitely stand out among the others at your next gathering.

Can i use peanut butter instead on jam? If not what can i use? My daughter doesnt like jam.
You could leave it out altogether, or perhaps some Nutella or something you think would go well with marshmallows.

I tried this recipe this morning. Only tin I had that was 23cm square had high sides, so the marshmallows didn’t brown. Speaking of which, the packets of Pascalls marshmallows here in Australia are 280gms, and I used one and a half packets (more than three times that is stated in the recipe). In total 64 marshmallows! However the slice is delicious and will certainly make it again.
Hi ya, thanks for this recipe. I came across it and decided to make it for my son’s class shared lunch tomorrow!! It was easy and looks delicious (still cooling at the moment). I wondered though – do you leave it in the baking tin to cool? And do you cool it in the fridge? Thanks 🙂
I would cool this one until the Marshmallow is cold before removing it from the tin. I tend to leave it on the bench to cool
Thank you!! 🙂
Made this and it’s fab! I forgot about it in the oven and the marshmallows caramelised so didn’t put on the coconut. This was super delicious.
That’s great you enjoyed it!!! I’m glad I’m not the only one who forgets things in the oven lol

Wonder how they would turn out if you melted the marshmallows in a pot first them spread on top?
Would be lovely but possibly very sticky? This way is really clean and easy to make. If you do try it let me know how you get on! 🙂 Anna
