Mini Egg Rice Krispie Cakes

So after Jack made chocolate biscuits in the last post, Lily wanted to make something. She decided to make mini egg Rice Krispie cakes, the mini eggs are a great addition to the simple Rice Krispie cake. They add some colour, and well I Just love chocolate mini eggs. We found a pack in the back of the cupboard left over from Easter. Personally I just wanted to eat them, but I was overruled by Lily.

It’s another very simple recipe, because that’s how we roll. My involvement was getting the pan and bowl out of the cupboard. Filling the pan with water, and turning on the gas hob. The rest was all Lily.

Ingredients

  • 150g milk chocolate
  • 50g butter
  • 60ml golden syrup
  • 135g Rice Krispies
  • chocolate mini eggs

Method

  • Break up the chocolate into little pieces and melt in a large bowl (big enough to take all the Rice Krispies later. I’ve made that mistake before) suspended over a pan of simmering water.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, add the butter and syrup and gently fold in.
  • Pour in the Rice Krispies and then fold briskly until everything is combined. When ready put the mixture into cake cases.
  • Finish by adding the mini eggs. Gently push them into the mixture to give them a chance of sticking.

These tasted great! Like I said in the marshmallow Rice Krispie squares post, I prefer the marshmallow to the chocolate version. Adding in the mini eggs definitely gives these something extra though. Lily was very precise that every cake had to have 2 mini eggs each (#autism), as you can see in the picture.

I’ll leave you with a couple of questions. How do you like your Rice Krispie cakes, chocolate or marshmallow? Also, what else do you think could make a good addition to this treat other than mini eggs?

    This has made me want Chocolate Rice Krispie cakes sooo much! They’re so yummy. I would definitely pick chocolate ones over marshmallow. I even use Coco Pops rather than plain rice krispies to make them extra chocolatey 🙂 … I’m such a child haha 🙂

      I’ve thought about using coco pops before, and what the difference would be. We will have to give it a try 😂

    Mmmmn, these look delicious and I love Lily’s eggs (we always seem to have a packet lurking in our cupboard). I think smarties or perhaps some dried cranberries might be a nice addition too? Yum! Lisa

      Smarties of course! Don’t think I’ve ever tried a dried cranberry, not even sure what it tastes like.

    Love rice crispie buns. The kids enjoy making them with us too. They like theirs with marshmallows on top.

    I’m reading this literally with a chocolate rice krispie cake next to me and yet I hadn’t had one for months, spooky timing. Although mine now looks lacking – definitely should have found some mini eggs to finish it off. Thanks for sharing, these look delicious and I’m sure they tasted it too!
