Prep Time : 1:40 | Cook Time : 0:45 | Total Time : 2:25 | Serving : 10 person.


  • 100g butter, chopped

  • 150g (1 cup) plain flour, sifted

  • 5 eggs, lightly whisked

  • 90g (1/4 cup) raspberry jam, warmed, cooled slightly

  • 180g Lindt Dessert Premium Dark chocolate, melted, cooled slightly

  • ArnottÂ’s Wagon Wheels Minis, to decorate

  • Assorted marshmallows, to decorate

  • Fresh raspberries, to decorate


  • 300g (1 1/2 cups) caster sugar

  • 160ml (2/3 cup) boiling water

  • 2 tablespoons powdered gelatine

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pink food colouring


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Draw a 20cm circle on baking paper. Place, marked side down, on a baking tray.

  • Step 2

    Combine butter, 250ml (1 cup) water and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat, stirring until the butter melts. Add the flour. Beat with a wooden spoon for 1 minute or until mixture leaves side of pan. Remove from heat. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool.

  • Step 3

    Use electric beaters to gradually beat in the egg, about 1 tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition. The mixture should be stiff enough to hold a wooden spoon upright, but soft enough to pipe (you may not need to add all of the egg). Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm plain nozzle. Pipe a ring of pastry over the circle marked on the baking paper, then pipe another ring of pastry mixture directly inside it. Pipe a third ring directly over the seam where the 2 circles meet. Splash the dough lightly with cold water.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden. Turn the oven off and leave for at least 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Use a large serrated knife to carefully cut pastry ring in half horizontally, discarding any uncooked dough from centre.

  • Step 5

    Meanwhile, to make the marshmallow, combine the sugar and 160ml (2/3 cup) cold water in a saucepan. Bring gently to the boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Pour the boiling water into a jug. Add the gelatine and whisk to dissolve. Pour gelatine mixture into the saucepan and stir for 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and set aside for 15 minutes to cool.

  • Step 6

    Place the bottom pastry ring on a serving plate. Use electric beaters to beat the gelatine mixture on high for 10-12 minutes or until very thick and cooled to room temperature. Add the vanilla and beat for a further 1 minute. Add a few drops of pink food colouring to the marshmallow and fold through. Spoon into the pastry ring. Set aside for 30 minutes or until set.

  • Step 7

    Once the marshmallow has set, place warmed jam in a snap-lock bag and snip corner. Drizzle jam over marshmallow. Cover with the top pastry ring.

  • Step 8

    Drizzle the melted chocolate over the pastry ring. Arrange the Wagon Wheels, marshmallows and raspberries on top. Use a kitchen blowtorch to lightly toast the marshmallows. Set aside for at least 30 minutes or until completely set.
