Great fun was had in the Lancashire Food kitchen yesterday, baking up some Easter treats for you all. Amongst the usual Easter nests we also had a go at making crispy rice mallow eggs which where great fun to make and very effective too. Luckily a couple of weeks ago I had bought some hollow egg shaped moulds I had spotted in my local pound store which are the only special equipment you need to create these treats.
Crispy rice eggs
- 2 tbps butter
- 2 cups marshallows
- 3 1/2 cups crisped rice cereal
- Oil spray for greasing egg molds
Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large pan over a low heat until runny, stir in the crispy rice and then fill both halves of your eggs moulds and sandwich together, leave for about 10 minutes until cool before opening your moulds. Your eggs should now be set and can be decorated how your wish,I choose chocolate and popping candy.
Easter nest cakes
These are simply delightful for easter egg hunts or just for taking into work to give easter cheer.
- Cornflakes, crispy rice or shredded wheat cereals
- Chocolate eggs
- cake cases
Melt the syrup, butter and chocolate in a pan, once melted remove from heat and stir in your cereal of choice, spoon into cake cases and place a few chocolate eggs on top , then allow to cool.
