I threw together these treats the other day and the whole family loved them. They are so simple and quick to make, with very few ingredients. Despite looking very sickly, these crispy bites are actually not as sweet as they appear, which was a nice surprise… it also means you can manage 3 and not just the 1 ;).
- 300g Marshmallows (most are naturally gluten free, but check packaging)
- 50g Butter
- 150g Gluten Free Rice Pops (I am using Nestle, see HERE)
- 200g Dark Choc (Gluten Free – I am using Dr. Oetker, see HERE)
- 50g White Choc (Gluten Free – I am using Dr. Oetker, see HERE)
- Firstly, melt the butter in the bottom of a large, high sided pan. Next, add the marshmallows and stir continuously on a low heat until a smooth mixture is formed and all the marshmallows have melted.
- Next, stir in the rice pops until they are all evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
- Pat down into a lined, square baking tin (approx 22″x22″). The mixture will be very sticky, so use a spoon that has been sat in a glass of boiling water for 1 minute, this will help smooth it out (keep dipping it back in the boiling water if necessary).
- Set aside to cool. Meanwhile melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Once the rice pop mixture is cool distribute the chocolate evenly over the top. Let it set slightly whilst you melt the white chocolate. Follow by layering this over top in whatever pattern you like (this part is optional!).
- Leave to set in the fridge. Once completely cool, cut into pieces & serve.
I hope you like this simple and speedy recipe… that is actually quite fun to make! Just beware, it is VERY sticky before it sets, so if you are going to try and sneak a taste while nobody is looking, you will probably get caught crispy-handed. Enjoy!
