Northern Irish Baking! – 15s!

These are some of the most simplest, and pretty darn tasty buns to make!
I never realised until recently that they were a Northern Irish thing until my sister told me! They really are the simple and darn tasty little things! Very simple to make too, so always lots of fun to do with the kids!
They are called 15s because you put 15 of all the ingredients in! You can make them using anything you want really! Here is what they are traditionally made using;

Ingredients
15 digestive biscuits
15 marshmallows chopped in half/30 mini marshmallows
15 Cherries
1 tin of condensed milk (Not 15!)
Coconut shavings

Now in my house we aren’t cherry or coconut fans so I only used the marshmallows!
I will let you guys know how to do it with them though but obviously my pictures wont include them!

    1. Put the digestive biscuits in a freezer bag! Make sure all of the air is out of it, seal it then crush the digestive biscuits up using a rolling pin or something similar! Have fun doing this, let out your anger ;] Make sure there are no big bits of biscuits left! If there Is a few you can crumble them between your fingers!

    2. Add in the cherries & Marshmallows and mix it all together

    1. Empty in the tin of condensed milk and mix either using a spoon or if you want to get mucky, your hands! if the mixture feels gloopy and sticky at this stage crush up another two digestives and add them and mix them in!

    1. Once you have done all that roll it out into a roll shape then put the coconut out on a surface and roll the 15s over it so that it coats the outside!
    2. Wrap it up in Clingfilm and refrigerate for a couple of hours, or if you want them done quicker, put them in the freezer for an hour!

  1. Whenever they have been refrigerated, take them out and unwrap the Clingfilm and cut them up!
  2. Enjoy!

Hope you guys have enjoyed this recipe , its quick, easy and delicious.. or at least I think so anyway!

Let me know if you tried it and what you think! Do you have any baking you enjoy doing?

Marshmallows, frozen & sisterly love!

Today was a good day! My mum came and picked up my little one and took her to nursery so I got a bath and pampered myself slowly before going out to the shops with my wonderful sister! Everyone feels better after a little pampering! Especially after having been up in the night being sick and to my little one who was awake constantly.. Though I can’t blame her as it was rather windy and rainy outside so it probably woke her!

So after having a bath, putting on some make-up and some clothes that didn’t resemble pjs for the first time in a week I was feeling rather energised! So I took a few selfies as you do, and then my pain medication so that I could dander about the shops and not feel too much pain and could enjoy it! Here is how my selfie turned out;IMG_0073.JPG not to shabby with a bit of make up and a smile eh! (I jest of course!!)

Then my sister arrived, not only did she bring the happiness she always brings, she also brought with her some homemade marshmallows! They are so beautiful.. I had to hide them from the rest of my little family so they don’t get munched!! I cannot tell you have delicious they are and the picture really doesn’t do them any justice but wow… She’s one good baker! Everyone in my family bakes, we all seem to go through phases where we bake lots and then stop… Now I have had some of her marshmallows I’m so tempted to make my lovely fudge I made last year.. It was just loads of marshmallows melter together really! Sweet, sugary goodness! Here is some evidence of the marshmallows.. Before they all disappear! IMG_0072.JPG

So we then proceeded to go shopping… Well a dander about while gossiping about everything and anything Christmassy.. I think all we actually did talk about was Christmas and how super it is, admiring all the Christmas jumpers/pjs/gift sets .. And then we got to Primark … Now we aren’t really big Primark shoppers, but go in for a nosey most times and may get a few bits.. But today we saw the most amazing t-shirts ever!!
They had frozen T-shirts, yes you heard me right frozen T-shirts! No need to rush out and buy them, because much to my and my sisters disbelief people weren’t rushing over and grabbing them off the shelf! They had lots of them, though only one of just Olaf! Which j wasn’t best pleased about, but going to be going back to get one when they are in stock! So me and my sister both got one which has all of the characters on it, it is absolutely adorable and will go perfectly with a pair of skinny jeans! So after we got super excited about these wonderful T-shirts we managed to calm ourselves down and make our way around the rest of the shop.. To find more frozen T-shirts in tiny sizes! So I grabbed a few for my little one knowing she would love them, and yes she was super chuffed when I showed them too her and look mega cute! She is having a frozen bouncy castle for her birthday next month so these T-shirts were a must for that! Though I can guarantee they will be worn on many more occasions! (I will get a picture of us all in them soon for you guys to see!) We then carried on on our travels and picked up some bargains for my little one in other shops, like a little bee outfit, butterfly wings and so forth! What little girl wouldn’t love them! We had a pretty successful shopping trip, as neither of us went mad and spent loads, but we also got some awesome things.. Like frozen t-shirts!

After that we met my mum in the park with my little one, and she was delighted to see aunti Laura! She does love her aunti so much! My sister isn’t much of a child lover so to speak.. But I think she rather enjoys a couple of hours here and there with my little one as they are always laughing away and doing the most obscure things! My sister really is great and she never gets enough credit! I really did enjoy my day out with her.. Even though I am now suffering from walking about being dosed up on pain pills! We don’t ever really get much time just me and her as my little one is normally there… And if she is with us.. No one else gets to talk, about anything, unless your answering one of her 100000 questions!

So I think the next few days will have to be quiet ones again so that I don’t completely destroy my pelvis and so forth.. Joys! Have the physio tomorrow.. Though not sure how much good it is going to do as she has already told me “we can’t make the pain go away, just help you to deal with it” .. Just what every pregnant lady wants to hear! I have a bad feeling soon they are going to give me crutches… Which is great as will make it easier to get around.. I think! Though I’m not to sure how I’ll manage crutches and a little one!

My sister also blogs, and has been for a long time! She even gets paid for doing it and sent loads of cool things! So if you want to visit her blog, which I would highly recommend doing so it’s; http://www.daydreamingfoodie.com
Can you tell she loves food? 😛
Here’s a lovely little picture of her and my little one from today to end the post!
Hope your all well and enjoying my blogging – WeeOhana 🙂
