    Place a bowl over a pan of boiling water, ensuring the water can’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Place egg whites, sugar, liquid glucose and water in the bowl. Beat with a handheld electric mixer on low for about 1 minute until sugar dissolves, then increase the speed and beat on high for 5-7 minutes until stiff and glossy.
  • 7
    Beat in the vanilla and marshmallows and mix until marshmallows are melted and frosting is smooth.


  • Use kitchen scissors to easily snip the marshmallows. Once the biscuit mixture is in the pan, arrange the Eskimo chunks so they are evenly distributed. PER SERVE (24) Energy 198kcal, 832kj • Protein 2.3g • Total Fat 7.7g • Saturated Fat 4.7g • Carbohydrate 30.7g • Fibre 0.9g • Sodium 64mg
