Rice Crispie Cakes

Really cheap and simple to make, pretty low in calories too

Whilst these are dead simple to make, with not many ingredients, they get a bit tricky when putting the mixture into the paper cases as the mixture gets very sticky, so I always need Martin on hand to help with this bit.  Definitely a favourite, especially for taking into work.

Serves 20 (55 calories per serving, without mini-eggs on top!)
Preparation and cooking time:  30 minutes
Freezing not recommended



150g marshmallows
25g cocoa powder
15g butter
125g rice crispies (We use Asda Smart Price)
Chocolate mini-eggs for decorating
  1. Place the marshmallows in a bowl over a pan of simmering water with the cocoa powder and the butter and heat gently, stirring, until the marshmallows have dissolved and you have a smooth chocolatey mixture.
  2. Stir in the rice crispies and mix well.  Divide the mixture between 20 individual paper cases, decorate with mini-eggs and chill for 1 hour.

Thanks for taking time to comment on my blog. I love to hear what people think about what Martin and I have been up to.
