Mini Eggs Marshmallow Crispy Treats- the classic rice crispy treat with an Easter twist- Cadbury's Mini Eggs. A very quick and easy recipe for children to make.

ingredients:

  • 50g butter
  • 250g marshmallows
  • 140g rice cereal
  • 32 Cadbury's Mini Eggs

instructions:

  1. Melt the marshmallows and butter in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring regularly.
  2. Pour the rice cereal into a large bowl.
  3. When melted and well-combined, pour the marshmallow mixture over the rice cereal and mix through well, making sure it's all coated. It will start to stick to the bowl and you'll see strings of marshmallow as you stir.
  4. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape the mixture into a greased dish. I use two 24 x 14cm glass dishes, but you could also use one dish twice the size.
  5. Cut a piece of greaseproof paper roughly the same size as the dish (you could use cling film, but it's not quite as effective). 
  6. Press the greaseproof paper onto the mixture and use your fingers to make sure it fills every corner and space. Then remove it and discard.
  7. Press the mini eggs into the mixture in whatever configuration you choose.
  8. Slice into rectangles with a knife. They should then lift out easily.
  9. They will keep in a sealed tin for several days.

  1. I ate one of these - made by your own fair hand. Absolutely delicious - tasted like sweet rice pudding in bar form. Will definitely give this one a go, cheers Mrs Morris!
