Step 1
Grease the base and sides of a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan. Line with baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang.

Step 2
Place combined chocolate and copha or butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir for 5 mins or until the mixture melts and is smooth.

Step 3
Combine marshmallow, shortbread, gingerbread, almond and Cherry Ripe in a large bowl. Add chocolate mixture. Gently fold until just combined. Spoon into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with M&M’s and M&M’s Minis. Set aside for 1 hour to set. Cut into pieces to serve.
