Line a 23cm loaf tin with foil. Heat the sugar, evaporated milk and butter together in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Boil for four to five minutes then remove from the heat.

Stir in the marshmallows, chocolate and vanilla essence. Stir quickly until the marshmallows have melted. Pour into the lined pan and sprinkle the peppermint crisp over the top. Leave to set in the fridge for 24 hours, or longer.

Remove from the tin and peel off the foil, then use a sharp knife to cut into blocks

Good idea:
If you would prefer to make smaller blocks, use a 23cm square tin.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
