After it was noted that our attempts to ‘bake’ Puffles didn’t actually involve the use of an oven, we have attempted to redeem ourselves in the kitchen and risen to the challenge of both using the oven - well hob to be completely accurate - and mixing more than two ingredients.
It’s a landmark occasion and we are feeling rather proud of ourselves at not only producing some Rice Krispies marshmallow-type thingys, but also surviving our first (and most definitely last) attempt at working with melted marshmallow.
We were supposed to be making Rice Krispies Easter Bunnies but we abandoned the recipe when it got to the part that told us to ‘roll portions of the marshmallow mixture into balls’ using your hands. After getting the stuff everywhere and then sticking to whatever we touched, we wimped out and dished it into a muffin case with some very sensible teaspoons instead.
If you’d like to brave melted marshmallow, here’s the full recipe:
Rice Krispies Easter Bunnies
45g unsalted butter or margarine
150 Rice Krispies
Sweets to decorate
- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until the mixture is melted. Remove from the heat.
- Add the Rice Krispies and stir well until coated with the marshmallow mixture.
- Using hands roll portions of the mixture into balls.
- Allow to cool slightly and then decorate with sweets and icing of your choice.
If you go for our more cautious ‘place the mixture in muffin cases and avoid touching the marshmallow your own hands’ approach they end up looking something like this:
Further word of caution however: Whatever you do, don’t put your camera lens too near the marshmallow, especially if it hasn’t fully set. You'll be cursing yourself for days.
Thanks to Kelloggs for sending over the recipe and ingredients.
