A Christmas Treat: Vegan Wagon Wheel Slice


- 3/4 cup butter substitute, we use Nuttelex Baking

- 1/3 cup caster sugar

- 1 1/2 cups plain flour

- 1/3 cup self raising flour

- 1 egg - replace with Orgran or McKenzies egg replacer

- 1/2 cup raspberry jam (room temperature)

- Dandies Marshmallows

- 1 cup dark chocolate chips - we use Sweet William


First make the shortbread base:

- Beat the butter and sugar together.  

- Add the egg substitute, then the flours.

- Bake the base for 20 minutes on 180 C or until the pastry is slightly browned on top.


- While the pastry is warm, spread the raspberry jam on top. 

- Chop the Dandies Marshmallows in half and lay the halves cut-side down on top of the jam. Cover the entire slice with marshmallow pieces.

- Place the slice back into the oven until the marshmallows begin to turn a golden colour.

- Remove the slice from the oven and cut into pieces while it is still in the tray and warm. Be careful as the marshmallows will be sticky and hot.

- Let the slice cool. Melt the dark chocolate chips and pour a thin layer over the top of the slice.

- Place the slice in the fridge until the chocolate has set.  

This is a delicious, sweet treat for your Christmas table. Enjoy!
