Easter Rice Krispie Cakes!

"Be brave, little rabbit. Take a chance." - Cherise Sinclair

Ahh all the Easter Bunnies are out in force, spreading the Easter love.. And with that in mind, things are getting a little tasty over here.. I wanted to a share a quick and easy recipe which you can make for Easter or any occasion! I'm taking it back to the old school - I haven't made these I don't think since I was in school which was a long time ago!

Everybody loves a Rice Krispie cake, they're super, duper easy to make and even easier to eat the whole lot.. With a very simple recipe and no ovens involved, why not make your own to share with your friends and family! I hope you enjoy this rather yummy Easter-themed tutorial! Soo lets get to it - off we hop!
For the 'Easter Rice 
Krispie Cakes' - you will need:
 125g Rice Krispies
 150g Plain, White or Dark Chocolate
 50g Butter
 3 tbsp Golden Syrup
 Mini Chocolate Coated Eggs
 Cupcake Cases
[This mixture makes 18 Rice Krispie Cakes]

 First of all, measure out all your ingredients, make sure you pop the Rice Krispies in the biggest bowl as things will get a little messy any smaller. (I also added a few more mini eggs as I accidentally ate some beforehand..)

Combine the chocolate, butter and golden syrup into a heatproof bowl.
You can either melt all of this in the microwave or I personally find it quicker in the saucepan over the cooker. 
*Be careful as gets super, super hot!*
Place the heatproof bowl into the saucepan - fill the saucepan with a little bit of water, 
ensuring the bowl doesn't touch the water.
Melt on a very low heat, it takes around 2-3 minutes for the chocolate and butter to fully melt.
I find using a spatula much easier to mix the melted-ness with as you can get all the chocolate off the sides!

Once the chocolate and butter are fully melted and mixed, pour the chocolate mix into the bowl of Rice Krispies (it's perfectly fine if some chocolate ends up in your mouth..)
Then, my personal favourite part - mix until all the chocolates covered the Rice Krispies, yum, yum, yum. 
*Snap, crackle and pop!*

Begin to fill your cupcake trays with the cases, you don't have to use themed cupcake cases, but it adds a cute little touch!
These funky ones were from my local pound shop!
Using two big spoons, start to dish out the mixture equally into the cupcake cases.
Next, taking your mini eggs, pop a few on each rice cake (this is optional, but highly advised!)
Once you've created your masterpieces, take your trays of rice cakes and pop them in the fridge to harden for about half an hour (they will still be a little gooey - if you want them completely hard, leave them for an hour). 
Whilst waiting for your little egg nests to get their coldness on, why not tidy up the kitchen - woohoo!

Once your cakes have had a little rest in the fridge, take them out and present them in the centre of the table for everyone to see and eat away.
I purchased this Easter chick themed cake stand again at my local pound shop - they sell everything it's wonderful!
These are great little treats for an Easters party - I'm taking these to my mums friends house, that's if they last until then (they're seriously so yummy).. 
If you don't fancy using a cake stand, then why not present your cakes on a large plate and even scatter some themed confetti for extra pizazz - o0o0o..
Be sure to tweet me a picture of your Easter creations over on my Twitter if you make these yummy cakes, I'd love to see your responses!

Whats your favourite thing about Easter? :)

Thank you for reading (sorry if it's made you hungry..) I hope you have a wonderful Easter,
eat way too much chocolate and have a lovely day.

With love,
