This is lolly cake.
With a name like that, you don't need a photo or a description to know that it's going to taste hella good. Lolly cake is an iconic New Zealand food, typically enjoyed by primary school-aged kids, and is so damn easy to make.
When we said it was iconic, we weren't joking.
Kiwis and lolly cake go together like Kiwis and Lord Of The Rings.
Lolly cake is great... but it's really unhealthy.
We'll have to warn you... it can sometimes look a bit like a coconut-covered poop before it's cut up.
If you want to make your own to try, it's honestly the easiest thing ever.
Melt 120g of butter and 200g of sweetened condensed milk in the microwave. Crush up malt biscuits (we used Milk Arrowroot) until they're really fine, then add the butter mixture, and 150g of lollies. In NZ, they use Eskimos which are like hard, coloured marshmallows. We just used marshmallows and a couple of banana lollies. Shape the mixture into a log, roll it in coconut, and bang it in the fridge until it's set. It should take about 5 hours.
