Rice Krispie spring treats

April 15, 2017Hels

Now the days are getting longer and the sun is starting to appear more regularly (although it’s not quite time to ditch the coats yet) I thought I’d make some fun, springtime treats.

I wanted to do something relatively quick and easy, and Rice Krispie treats seemed like the perfect option…

Recipe:

  • 90g unsalted butter
  • 400g marshmallows
  • 200g Rice Krispies
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 200g chocolate – I used white but you can use whatever is your favourite
  • Topping if you want – I used Smarties, but you could use Mini Eggs or something similar for a more Easter-y treat

Method:

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat
  • Add 300g or so of marshmallows into the melted butter and stir until melted and gooey
  • Add the tbsp of milk and then add in the rest of the mashmallows
  • Once they’re all pretty much melted (it’s okay if there are a few little lumps of marshmallow), take the saucepan off the heat
  • Add in the Rice Krispies – do this slowly so you have time to mix them all thoroughly into the marshmallow
  • Put the mixture into a lined baking tray and pat it down
  • You can finish here and leave it to cool and then cut up if you just want simple Rice Krispie squares, or you can add some pretty and tasty toppings…
  • Melt the chocolate and drizzle over the top of the Rice Krispies in the tray
  • Press smarties or whatever topping you fancy into the mixture
  • Then put into the fridge to cool
  • Once it’s cooled, cut up in squares and enjoy!
