Rice Krispie Buns and Cookies
Rice Krispie Buns
So, my niece will be 1 on Saturday. The year has flown by and can't believe how much she has grown. Cuties cheeks and smile, with two front teeth that add to the charm. She is better entertainment than TV :-)
My brother just asked, Lorraine, will you make some Rice Krispie Buns, and maybe some of your biscuits if you have time, like that, of course I have time, and as I love to bake or make anything edible, I agreed.
Just making out the list -
Rice Krispie Buns
Box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies (absolutely has to be Kellogg's, whoever says that all Rice Krispie brands taste the same, is insane)
2 x 200g bars of Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate (chocolate has to be Cadbury's - I am a stickler for tradition )
5 pk of Nestle Smarties - these are an added bonus, add to the decoration
Get a large Pyrex bowl (one that can take intense heat), place a pot of water onto stove to heat. While this is happening, place the chocolate broken up into the bowl. Now put the bowl with care over the pot that is on the heat, and with a wooden spoon, slowly (and yes, it takes a while) stir the chocolate till it melts.
Too save on cleaning and not waste any chocolate, once the chocolate is a runny, yummy looking silky liquid, using a tea towel, remove the bowl from the heat.
Leave the pot on the back hob, be careful, boiling water is a danger.
Place the bowl ontop of the tea towel (fold in half and place on counter top). Now, with some care, start to pour about 200g of Rice Krispies into the melted chocolate. Stir vigorously until every small grain is covered in chocolate. Now add another 200g (this is an approximate amount, about a cupful), doing the same, and continue until the bowl is full of totally covered Rice Krispies. You want to add only enough so the chocolate is full, but not stretched (I am always generous, make these buns so chocolatey, you swear you'll stop at one ;-)
Now, put bun cases onto a tray and spoon the mixture into the cases.
Once all the mix is gone from the bowl, you have my permission to lick the wooden spoon :-), and the bowl if you like.
Now, open the Smarties and place at least 3 on the top of each bun. Mix up the colours, make them look good.
Now, place the tray into your fridge on a flat surface and leave for as long as possible (if you cant wait, they will be set after 2 hours, so help yourself)
Ok, now off home to make them, and the biscuits, will add receipes later
