Quick to make and very quick to disappear at a party or special tea, these crunchy little squares make a change from the chocolate-krispies that I made for the children when they were young. These cut really easily, so can be used to make any kind of shape for themed parties, and decorated in loads of different ways.
(Makes 12 or more)
- 25g butter
- 150g marshmallows
- Food colour (optional)
- 80g Rice Krispies
- Piping Icing to decorate
1. Brush a tray bake tin lightly with oil. Over low heat, melt the butter in a thick bottomed saucepan and add the marshmallows, stirring continually until they are melted. Stir in a little food colour if desired (I made mine a bit pink with a little pink gel).
2. Take the pan off the heat and immediately stir in the Rice Krispies until the rice is completely coated. It will be very sticky and stiff to blend.
3. Turn out into the tray bake tin and spread evenly with a spatula, taking up all or part of the tin depending on the thickness you’d like them to be. Leave to cool, then cut into squares or other shapes.
4. Add decoration with piping icing.
