  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 115g butter

  • 4 leaves gelatine
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla essence

  1. For the base, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Butter a 25cm x 30cm high sided baking tin and line with baking paper.
  2. Combine the oats, sifted flour, coconut and brown sugar in a large bowl.
  3. Place the butter, golden syrup, and water in a small saucepan and heat until the butter is melted.

  5. Press the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes until firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool.


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat gently.
  2. Once the butter has melted, continue to cook the caramel on a medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent sticking, for another 5 minutes.
  3. Spread evenly over the base and allow to cool.


  1. Place the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes to bloom. Remove from the water and squeeze out the excess water.
  2. Place the gelatine in the bowl of a cake mixer with the whisk attachment fitted and add the sugar, boiling water and vanilla essence.
  3. Beat vigorously until the marshmallow cools and the volume has at least doubled and formed firm peaks.
  4. Spread the marshmallow over the caramel and smooth out evenly.
  5. Sprinkle the coconut over and allow to set for a few hours before removing from the tin and slicing.
