This is cute, colourful and you don’t even need to bake it. I like to think that generally my baking is a tad more refined that this; nonetheless I was amazed at how delicious this slice was. I happened to have some mini green and yellow marshmallows, but pink and white would be just as nice, and probably prettier! So go wild, it’s a forgiving recipe! Just don’t skimp on the wet ingredients, I’m sure we’ve all battled with a crumbly slice at some point in our lives.
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk*
250g packet plain biscuits, such as milk arrowroot
1 cup desiccated coconut
150g mini marshmallows
¾ cup icing sugar
Yellow food colouring
Line or grease a 20x30cm slice tin.
Place the condensed milk and butter in a saucepan and mix until the butter has melted. Remove from heat. Crush the biscuits finely, leaving a few larger chunks**. Mix the crushed biscuits, coconut and marshamallows together, then add the butter mixture and mix. Tip the mix onto the slice tin and compact the mixture evenly, using your fingers or a glass. Refrigerate overnight or until set.
Melt the 25g butter in a small bowl and combine the icing sugar until it forms a paste. Gradually add the water until you have a thin consistency. Colour. Spread thinly over slice, making it go as far as possible. Refrigerate until set. Cut into squares and keep refrigerated.

**Place the biscuits on a large bowl and crush with a can, or place them in a clean plastic shopping bag and roll them with a rolling pin.
