Happy Easter! Treats and chocolate

I've eaten a lot of chocolate recently.  Creme Eggs mainly, and Mini Eggs.  I love Mini Eggs.  But you can have too much of a good thing,  and I think I have reached the stage where I have quite possibly eaten too much chocolate.

I still wanted to make something sweet this weekend.  With a box of Rice Krispies approaching being empty, and a bag of mini marshmallows in the cupboard, I had a sudden desire to make Rice Krispie squares.  They remind me of parties from my childhood, and they are the easiest thing in the world to make, ever.


20g butter
150g mini marshmallows
100g Rice Krispies
Optional: sprinkles to decorate

A greased/lined tin

Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat.  Add the marshmallows a handful at a time and stir until melted.  Take off the heat and gradually add the cereal.  It gets quite stiff quite quickly.  Put into the tin (optional - sprinkle with hundreds and thousands) and leave to cool before cutting into squares.

It's not the prettiest of tasty treats, but tasty it is.  Perfect with a cup of tea.  Which is what I'm going to go and have now.

I know I said I'd had enough chocolate this Easter, but how adorably cute are these chicks?!
