Here's another fab recipe for making with the kids during half term. I made them with the darlings over the summer and they loved helping.
Lydia's getting much more interested in baking now. Up until quite recently, she lost interest after a few minutes but now she'll help me with the whole recipe. I love having some little helpers in the kitchen.
The little diva doesn't like getting her hands dirty though! And if you ask her what does mummy do? she replies 'mummy's a baker'! Unfortunately I'm not!
These Marshmallow Krispie Bars are so quick and simple to make. No baking required which is fab if you're pushed for time. I think they would be great for childrens parties and you can top them with anything. I used smarties as that's what was in my cupboard but chocolate chips, caramel chips, sprinkles or drizzled with chocolate would all be fab.
Marshmallow Krispie Bars
Preparation time 15 minutes
150g rice krispies
Line a 20cm baking tin with non stick paper.
Put the butter in a large pan and put the marshmallows on top of the butter. Melt gently over a low heat, stir it regularly until it's all melted and combined.
Take the pan off the heat, tip in the rice krispies and stir until they're all coated.
Tip into the baking tin and level it with the back of a fork. This is the hard bit because it's so sticky but keep going and push it down and into the corners with the fork. Leave it aside to set then decorate however you like!
