What are Iced Vovo biscuits?

If you’re an Aussie girl (or guy!) you’ll know ALL about iced vovo biscuits (you probably grew up sneaking them out of the pantry, right!!?). But if you’re not familiar with them, here’s the low-down!

Iced vovo biscuits are a classic Australian biscuit made by Arnotts. They have:

  • a biscuit base
  • strip of jam
  • pink marshmallow/fondant on top
  • sprinkled with coconut

These Iced Vovo Tarts are a fun little take on the classic biscuit… and they’re so simple and quick to make!

All you need is:

  • mini tart shells
  • raspberry jam
  • marshmallows
  • cream
  • desiccated coconut

Using store-bought pastry tart shells will save you SO much time and effort. You can grab a mini pack of 12 for just a couple of dollars. 

Then it’s just a matter of adding a little spoonful of jam to the base of each tart, topping with a melted marshmallow and cream mixture and then sprinkling over desiccated coconut. That’s IT!!!

How long will these last?

These tarts are best made on the day of serving. Prepare them and store in an airtight container until needed. I also find it easiest to prepare them while the tart shells are still in their packaging tray as it holds them nicely in place while you fill them.

    What percent fat is pouring cream? In Canada it is whipping, blend , or cereal cream. Which percent of milk fat works best?looks like a quick recipe to make with on-hand pantry ingredients.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Shirley, I believe it’s equal to 35% whipping cream in Canada. xx

  2. Krystal says:

    I couldn’t get the pastry shells from the supermarket so I’ve made some with shortcrust pastry which I have blind baked. Do you think they would be ok to fill a day ahead? Too much to do on the morning of my party!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Krystal, if if at all possible, they’re definitely best made on the day (I promise they only take a few minutes if you’ve already prepped the pastry!). Have a great party!!! xx

  3. Anne says:

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Anne, of course! It’s 20ml xx
