Today is a quick post for a quick recipe! This is so simple yet so tasty. These rice crispy squares can be made by anyone and would be a great way to introduce kids to baking. I only happened to make them as we had some marshmallows in the cupboard that no one wanted to eat. My mum suggested I make something with them and this was the first idea that came to mind! The white chocolate was also something I had left over from another recipe so could be left out/replaced with another type of chocolate. Sprinkles were also an optional extra…(I think necessary).
180g Rice Crispies
1 Tsp vanilla extract
100g White chocolate (optional)
Hundred and thousands (optional)
1. Melt the butter in a large pan on a low/medium heat.
2. Add the marshmallows and mix until melted. Add the vanilla extract and mix in.
3. Mix in the rice crispies. Only once all the rice crispies have been coated should you mix in the chocolate (that you have broken up). This means it slightly melts but some chunks remain.
4. Quickly transfer to a linked tin and push down with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with hundreds and thousands, if you so choose!
5. Leave for at least 2 hours to cool fully and set, slice into squares and enjoy. It really is that easy!
There isn’t much more I can say about these rice crispy squares. They are easy, yummy and cheap to make! You could try using other cereals or mixing in other chocolate. They are great as a snack- if they last long enough- so make sure you keep them in an airtight container.
Let me know if you give them a go or if you make any variations!
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!
Until next time,
