Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 quantity Citrus marshmallow roulade with chocolate ganache
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
80g raspberry jam
200g dark chocolate, melted
160g roasted salted peanuts, chopped

Chocolate shortbread cookies

Quantity Ingredient
175g unsalted butter, softened
80g dark brown sugar
260g plain
30g dutch cocoa powder

Method

  1. Lightly spray a 25 x 30 cm baking tin with oil, line the base and two long sides with non-stick baking paper and lightly spray the paper with oil. Preheat the oven to 150°C. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Prepare the marshmallow mixture as instructed, omitting the orange zest and replacing it with the vanilla bean paste. Use a spatula to scrape the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the surface. Stand for about 1 hour, until set.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the cookies, use an electric mixer with a paddle attachment to beat the butter and sugar for 8 minutes, until creamy. Add the sifted flour and cocoa in 2 batches and beat until just combined. Knead lightly to bring the dough together. Divide in half and roll between sheets of non-stick baking paper until 4–5 mm thick. Cut into rounds using a 7 cm cutter, re-rolling the dough as necessary to make 24 cookies. Place the cookies on the lined trays, 2 cm apart. Bake for 25–30 minutes, swapping the trays halfway through cooking, until cooked through. Remove from the oven and cool on the trays.
  4. Spread ½ teaspoon of the jam over each cooled cookie, leaving a 1 cm border. Use a 7 cm cutter sprayed lightly with oil to cut the marshmallow into 12 rounds. Place the rounds on 12 of the cookies, then top with the remaining cookies. Use the back of a small spoon to spread the melted chocolate around the edge of the wagon wheels. Roll in the chopped peanuts and place on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper to set.

Notes

  • Keep in an airtight container for 2–3 days.

    Try different flavours in your marshmallow, and roll the wagon wheels in different types of nuts. Mini wagon wheels would also be fun.
