Introduction

Traditional Northern Irish treat, just like my granny used to make. They're called 15s because you need 15 of the main ingredients.

Method

Fifteens is a community recipe submitted by CyclingCook and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Mix together the marshmallows, crushed digestives and glace cherries in a large bowl. Mix in the condensed milk to make a soft, moist dough. I use my hands for this.
  • Sometimes, you may need to add extra condensed milk. Roll the dough into a large sausage shape. Spread a layer of desiccated coconut over a clean surface and role the sausage over the coconut to coat the outside of it.
  • Wrap it rightly in cling film or kitchen foil. Leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours to harden. Slice into 15 slices (of course!)
