Lolly Cake

Lolly cake is a real kiwi kids favorite! It's also really easy to make and only has a few ingredients. Perfect for a kids birthday party.


Lolly Cake


Makes 20 slices

250 g plain biscuits (I used plain vanilla biscuits)
120 g Butter
200 g light condensed milk
190 g fondant lollies*
Desiccated coconut

1. Process the biscuits to a fine crumb in a food processor. Roughly chop the lollies into small pieces/chunks.

2. Melt the butter with the condensed milk in a saucepan over a low-medium heat.

3. Stir the biscuit crumbs and chopped lollies into the melted butter/condensed milk.

4. Turn out the mixture onto a clean surface and roll into a log. Roll the log in desiccated coconut, wrap in cling film and refrigerate until set (a couple of hours).

5. Cut into slices and store in an airtight container.

    1. Thanks Evelyn :) Here in NZ we have different names for things that what you are used to. Candy is called lollies, and cookies are called biscuits. I am learning all the differences now!
