• 250g unsalted butter, chopped, softened
• 3/4 cup brown sugar
• 2/3 cup caster sugar
• 2 eggs
• 2 egg yolks
• 2 cups plain flour
• 1/2 cup baking cocoa
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp ground ginger
• 150g vanilla and strawberry flavoured marshmallows
• 80g white chocolate, finely chopped
• 1/2 cup hundreds and thousands
Note: Allow 20 minutes for cooling.
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Put 200g of the butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat with paddle attachment on medium for 5 minutes or until light and creamy. Add eggs and egg yolks, then beat until combined.
Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and ginger over butter mixture, then fold until a stiff dough forms. Divide dough into 24 pieces and use your hands to roll each into a ball. Arrange balls 7cm apart on prepared trays and bake for 20 minutes or until firm. Cool on trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Put marshmallows and remaining butter in a small saucepan over a low heat and cook, stirring until melted.
Remove pan from heat, add chocolate and beat until smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes or until cool.
Spread 1 heaped tablespoonful of the marshmallow mixture onto flat side of 1 biscuit, then sandwich with a second biscuit. Repeat with remaining marshmallow mixture and biscuits.
Spread hundreds and thousands on a plate, then roll edges of each pie to coat. Serve.
