Marshmallow Brick Toast Recipe

When we visited Taiwan N years ago, we tried a snack called 棺材板 - it literally means "coffin"! But it is also said that it means 升官發財 (get promotion and prosperous).  It is actually a deep fried toast with a hole in the centre, which is filled is ingredients like chicken meat, onion, carrot. 

Recently, I heard that similar concept is applied to dessert - honey, fruits and ice-cream are used instead. Well, it looks quite easy to prepare. However, the children have been coughing, so we had to give ice-cream a miss. We created Marshmallow Brick Toast, which is super easy to prepare!

4 slices bread
9 pieces marshmallow

  1. Preheat oven at 170 degrees Celsius.
  2. Use scissors to cut a square from each of 3 slices of bread. Then cut the square into smaller pieces. I personally find that it is easier to scissors as compared to knife.
  3. Spread butter on the bread.
  4. Bake the bread for 5 minutes.
  5. Assemble the bread - place the whole piece of bread at the bottom, then stack up the other 3 pieces with a hole in the centre, place the small pieces in the hole, then arrange the marshmallow on top.
  6. Place the brick toast in the oven, watch carefully - take out the toast once the marshmallow starts to melt!

The marshmallows are delicious - the outer layer is crispy, while the inner part is melted. That reminds me of the good old days when we had barbecue, many of us would have some grilled marshmallows to complete the meal!

Warning - it was quite messy when the children ate the marshmallows!
