What is a Wagon Wheel?

Wagon Wheels are a sweet treat created in the UK and brought to Australia in 1951. Traditionally it is two plain biscuits, sandwiched with marshmallow and jam and coated in chocolate. They're meant to resemble a wagon's large wheels, hence the name Wagon Wheels.

Variation Ideas to Try

Though it won't taste the same as a wagon wheel, here are some variations to try:

  • peanut butter with thin slices of banana

  • Nutella with thin slices of strawberries

  • raspberry jam and mini marshmallows

  • sprinkle over the melted chocolate with crushed peanuts and sea salt
