In America they call them Moon Pies, and in England we call them Wagon Wheels.. But whatever name they go by I think we can all agree they are delicious! 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/170° fan/Gas Mark 5 and line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

  2. In a large bowl, rub together the flours and butter until you have coarse breadcrumbs.

    • 250g Plain White Flour
    • 150g Self Raising White Flour
    • 300g Butter (Unsalted) (Cold)
  3. Stir in the sugar.

    • 170g Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
  4. Gently beat the egg and vanilla together, add this to the rest of the mixture and bring together to form a soft dough.

    • 1 Egg(s) (Free Range) (Large)
    • 1 tbsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Bean Paste
  5. Wrap and chill for one hour.

  6. Roll out the dough a little at a time on a floured surface. Cut out circles with a 2 ½ inch cutter.

  7. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool for a few minutes on the tray before cooling completely on a rack. You may need to bake the biscuits in batches, as there should be 24.

  8. Melt 150g of the chocolate in a bowl over some simmering water.

    • 150g Dark Chocolate
  9. Select 12 biscuits and place on a rack over a baking tray. Coat one side of these biscuits with chocolate, then chill until set. These will be the bases of the Wagon Wheels.

  10. Fill a piping bag with Marshmallow Fluff and another with your jam. Line baking tray with some clean parchment.

    • 213g Marshmallow Fluff
    • 4 tbsp Seedless Raspberry Jam
  11. Once set, turn the base biscuits with the chocolate side facing down onto the clean piece of baking parchment. Pipe marshmallow fluff onto each one and top this with a little jam. Top this with the remaining biscuits to make a sandwich. Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes.

  12. Melt 300g of chocolate in a bowl over some simmering water.

    • 300g Dark Chocolate
  13. Place the chilled biscuits on a rack over a clean baking tray. Coat each one in chocolate by gently spooning it over and coating the sides.

  14. Place in the fridge to set and eat within 3 days.
