I finished work early today, so I took advantage of having some extra time and collected Miss D from pre-school early, so we could make some Krispie cakes!
I find plain Rice Krispie cakes a bit boring, so I thought I’d take some inspiration from Rocky Road, and add a few extra ingredients. The great thing about these no-bake recipes is that Miss D can also get stuck in and help too!
To start with, I melted a 200g bar of milk chocolate with around 50g of dark chocolate and 75g of butter over a pan of boiling water.
While this cooled for a few minutes, we added to a large mixing bowl
- 100g Rich Tea biscuits (broken with a rolling pin)
- 25g chopped glace cherries (I gave Miss D a blunt knife to do this)
- 50g of raisins
- 75g of Rice Krispies
- 75g of mini marshmallows
Once these had all been weighed out, I added the melted chocolate mixture and Miss D mixed it all up.
We filled cupcake cases with the mixture, then Miss D drizzled (or blobbed!) some melted white chocolate on top!
