Marshmallow Lamingtons

Entertaining doesn't have to be difficult or stressful, or even time consuming. Of course you can always dash down to the store for a mud cake and lamingtons for your morning tea with the girls...or even better, whip something up in the nick of time that is even tastier and more unique. I think the best things in life are always the simple things, the small things. After all, when you think about what made your day, its probably your baby grinning cheekily at you over that caramelly gateaux oozing with chocolate and cream and all sorts of yummy gore.
Anyway, too often Mums and housewives like us look for some way to make things quicker, easier and as fuss free as possible. There's never enough time when you're a housewife, especially with kids, and a simple, effective and delicious recipe is always welcomed. And yes, I'd say its foolproof too. Who doesn't want that?
We called them Snowballs when we were kids, but back then they where much larger...these little guys are easier on the stomach and the hips, and you only need three ingredients. They can be made for an elegant afternoon tea with the mother in law, or a kids birthday party in bright coloured truffle cases and will go down just as well with both crowds. I assure you.


1/2 bag marshmallows
Approximately 350g cooking chocolate
1 cup shredded coconut

Melt the chocolate in a small bowl. Fill another small bowl with the coconut. Using a fork, dip each marshmallow into the chocolate and proceed to roll in the coconut until covered using another fork. Place the marshmallow on some greaseproof paper to dry or straight into a paper truffle case. Voila!
