  1. Cut the marshmallows in halves using scissors, and place in a large bowl. Toss with the digestive biscuits and candied cherries. Gradually stir in the sweetened condensed milk until the mixture becomes a soft, moist dough. It should not be too dry, so you may need to add a bit more of the milk.
  2. Spread a generous layer of coconut out on a clean surface, and place the dough on top of it. Use your hands to form the dough into a long thick sausage, making sure it is well coated with coconut. Wrap in a double layer of plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.
  3. Unwrap the long piece of dough, and cut into slices to serve.

Digestive biscuits are a British thing. In Britain, 'biscuits' are what Americans call 'cookies.' Digestive biscuits are high in wheat flour, and are not very sweet. You can eat them on their own with a nice cup of tea, but they are also very good topped with cream cheese. The most popular brand of digestives are made by McVities. I have seen digestive biccies in the 'World Food' aisle of large grocery stores, and also speciality British food shops.

As noted in another review, Digestive Biscuits are a British tradition. The closest American equilevant (sp?) would be Graham Crackers or Nilla Waffers. If using Graham Crackers, use the square section, if using Nilla Waffers, I'd probably add an extra 10-15 more to make up for the density of the Digestives. Best experiment a bit. Either way...these suckers are great!

Very easy to make and they are perfectly delicious! I used graham crackers and they turned out fine.

Are they called "fifteens" because there's 15 of everything, or I'll put on 15 lbs eating these!? Sooo yummy and easy to make. They remind me of something that my grandma would make in the 50's or 60's for a party, so the added kitsch factor is a bonus!

I was introduced to this recipe while student teaching in Ireland. I had/made them without the coconut and they're still very very good! Beware you will want to eat the whole batch!
