wagon wheels

A classic chocolate biscuit that you won't want to share!

I can't say I ever had too many wagon wheels as a child so now I feel like I missed out massively. And seeing as wagon wheels aren't vegan - still waiting on that Burton's! - I've gone and created my own version and they are SO tasty and chocolatey and oh so British that you just have to have a go at making them. These biscuits are a good activity to get children involved, you're bound to get as messy as I did which is all the fun of it! 

This recipe does have a few more steps (see below) than my usual including making the jam from scratch which you can swap for store-bought jam but you can't skip the marshmallow step unless you've managed to find store-bought vegan marshmallow! :)

Make Ahead


Prep: 1 hour
Cook: No bake + 2 hours chilling time


18 digestive biscuits or biscuit of choice
150g Raspberries
120ml Water
2tsp sugar
1tbsp cornflour + 1tbsp water
125ml Aquafaba from x1 can chickpeas
1tsp Vanilla extract
150g Caster sugar
¼tsp Cream of tartar
100g Icing sugar
300g dark chocolate melted


✿First make the jam - In a small saucepan add the raspberries, sugar and water and stir together till the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer stirring often. 
✿Combine the cornflour with the water and mix well then add this to the jam mixture and stir in. Keep the mixture on a low-medium heat until it has thickened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely where it will thicken more. Leave to the side till ready to use.
✿Line a baking tray with baking paper. Melt the chocolate over a bain-marie or in the microwave. Dip 9 of the digestive biscuits into the chocolate so that the bottom part of the biscuit is covered but not the top. Place on the baking tray and place in the fridge to set.
Make the marshmallow filling. In a stand mixer, whip the aquafaba with the cream of tartar until white and foamy about 1-2 minutes. Gradually add a spoonful at a time of the caster sugar with the mixer on. 
✿Keep whipping for about 10 minutes until stiff peaks have formed and it looks glossy. You should be able to turn the bowl upside down and the mixture stays still. 
✿Take the biscuits out from the fridge and spread about a teaspoon or a bit more of the marshmallow fluff on top of the biscuit side NOT the chocolate side. With the other 9 biscuits spread about a teaspoon of jam on one side and place this on top of the marshmallow biscuit so they are sandwiched together. 
✿This next part can get messy! Place all of the biscuit sandwiches on a cooling rack and place this on top of a baking tray. Spoon or pour the melted chocolate over all of the biscuits till they are completely covered. You may have to melt the chocolate a little more in the microwave.
I had to keep spooning more chocolate in certain places which is why mine weren't completely covered, or you could melt some extra chocolate. 
✿Place all of the wagon wheels in the fridge to set completely before serving. I had mine dunked in a cuppa! Enjoy!
