YUM! My fave kiwi treat! I made this lolly cake in the UK. I bought malt biscuts and eskimo lollies from the NZ shop. Came out looking and tasting just like shop bought cake...mmmm so excited! Craved all through my pregnancy, now I have 9 days left. Better make the most of it :)

Hi! I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents (or, ok, there are no "pennies" in NZ so maybe I'll throw in my 5 cents worth ;)). My husband is a kiwi and left NZ to marry me and move to the USA where we now live with our 2 sons. He made such a sacrifice to marry me that every chance I get I try to make something "kiwi" for him so he doesn't get homesick. I've had to adjust this recipe a bit (only for USA amount/ingredient conversions). Fruit puffs are multicolored and are sorta like marshmallows. I haven't been able to find anything like malt biscuits in the grocery shop but I did manange to find a store in the SF Bay Area (CA, USA) that sells kiwi foods so we pick up the malt biscuits there. You might want to try graham crackers, I haven't tried it but they might be similar. If you want details to the shop email me at ocean413@yahoo.com. Here is the way I made the lolly cake...and my kiwi hubby put his stamp of approval on it. Enjoy...they are YUMMY! :) The above recipe is perfect, if you need a USA Conversion version of the Lolly Cake, here it is: 7 TBSP butter, melted 1 pkt malt biscuits, crushed 1/2 c sweetened condensed milk 2.5 c mini marshmallows finely chopped coconut Mix together butter, biscuits, condensed milk and marshmallows. Sprinkle coconut onto wax paper, shape dough into a log and roll in coconut. Fold wax paper aroung log and refrigerate until firm (a couple hours usually) and then slice into rounds. Have a nice day! Tiffany :) ~~~

I too live on the Goldcoast Australia and make what we call "unicorn logs" every year for Christmas and looooove them. I use Woolies home brand fruit sticks and Malt-a-milk Biscuits. but be aware the unicorn logs are very very morish. Diane. Happy Christmas to all.

Very easy recipe and worked so well! Delicious! I made double the recipe though, but only half the amount of eskimos! Worked awesomely. Thanks for the recipe! ;D

Really, really quick but sickly sweet.. I'm going to make it next time with unsweetened condensed milk as I reckon this will improve it a lot.. kids love it due to bright colours (and huge sugar rush)
