With the lockdown still ongoing, we have had to keep our Easter activities strictly home based. We’ve done so many crafts so decided to make some non baking treats!
Milk chocolate Rice Krispie treats are by far the most synonyms with Easter and also so easy to do! All you need is 3 ingredients and a few minutes to hand.
200grams of milk chocolate, 350gr of Rice Krispie cereal and mini eggs for decorating.
Firstly break the chocolate into pieces and melt in the microwave for a total of 3 minutes, but stirring the chocolate every minute or so. You can also melt the chocolate over a hob.
Once the chocolate has melted, mix together with the cereal in a large baking bowl. Then simply pop the mix into cupcake cases and decorate. We used mini eggs here but you can use anything! Then place in the fridge for an hour to set.
And there you have it. It’s as simple as that and you don’t need butter or oil like other recipes I have seen!
We also made while chocolate and marshmallow versions too, which take a slight more but of skill and time, but are also very easy!
200 grams of white chocolate, 350 grams of Rice Krispie cereal, 20 mini marshmallows and whatever you decide for decorating!
Firstly melt the whites chocolate like before, in a microwave for 3 minutes but stirring every minute or so. At the last 30 seconds add the marshmallows. (Do not add them initially as they will burn!)
Once the chocolate has melted, mix the marshmallows well (they will continue to soften). Then add the Rice Krispies and mix. Pop them into cupcake cases and decorate.
This time, do not put them into the fridge. Instead set them aside to set. The marshmallow will harden on its own!
Personally I prefer the milk chocolate version but both Ita and Dominic love the white chocolate mix!
