Lolly cake is a Kiwi tradition. Lollies used in the recipe are Fruit Puffs which are like firm, but slightly chewy, fruity marshmallows. Malt biscuits and coconut finish off the masterpiece.

To make Lolly Cake, you will need:

120 g butter
250 g malt biscuits (one packet)
180 g of Eskimoes or Fruit Puffs (one packet) or marshmallows or banana lollies 
200 g (1/2 can) sweetened condensed milk
100 g shredded coconut 
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)

How to make Lolly Cake:

  • Crush the biscuits. They don’t need to be a fine dust, some pieces can be left partially smushed to give the cake a nicer texture.
  • Mix in cinnamon, if you want it.
  • Warm the butter and condensed milk in the microwave for 30 seconds until the butter is very soft. It’s ok if the butter melts a bit. Allow to cool if it’s too hot – you don’t want to melt the fruit puffs/Eskimos.
  • Cut the fruit puffs in half if you want or leave them whole.
  • Mix the fruit puffs with the crushed biscuits, add the butter and condensed milk. Mix well.
  • Scoop up the mixture and roll it into a log shape, or take small amounts and roll into little balls. Alternatively, you can press into a slice tin and cover with fine layer of coconut.
  • Roll in the shredded coconut until the log or each ball is completely covered.
  • Place on a tray in the refrigerator and wait for it to harden. This takes a few hours. Put plastic wrap over the tray to keep the lolly cake moist.
