I've told you before about the sponsorship I'm getting from Kelloggs. And I promised to make some Rice Krispie cakes in celebration. Luckily, Kelloggs decided to send Easter cooking kits out to a handful of bloggers, so my job was made even easier - I didn't even have to shop.
(I don't want you drifting off during this, because I've got a Rice Krispie cake kit to give away. It's got marshmallows in it. Stick around.)
So, this was the recipe. (You should be aware that I am very much a follower of recipes. I don't do much winging it. If it says 300g of something, I am not the kind of person who is comfortable using 290g or 310g. I do what I'm told over here.)
We donned our special Rice Krispies aprons and chef's hat, grabbed our Kelloggs wooden spoon, and got to work melting our marshmallows.
The next job was to pop the Rice Krispies into the pan, and 'stir to coat' with the marshmallowy goop. Then the mixture was to be rolled into balls, and turned into little rabbit shapes with sweets for eyes.
Hmm. About that.
I can honestly say I have never been so sticky in my life. Those 1960s films where people had to be pulled out of quicksand? I thought we were going there. I thought I would never be free.
Rolling it into balls? No chance. We decided to just squash it down into a tray. You can see how well this went below.
The only way that the mixture could be pushed down into a tray was by adding a secondary surface to push down on. We chose a layer of Dolly Mixtures. Because, you know, there wasn't enough sugar in the marshmallows already.
It goes without saying that this Rice Krispie slab is one of the most popular things we have ever made. The Lattes gave it a resounding thumbs up. And, once dried, it is not sticky at all, and can safely be held in bare hands without a can of WD40 being nearby.
So! If you'd like to have a go, I have a kit to give away. It contains an apron, a chef's hat, a wooden spoon, a packet of Rice Krispies, a cookie cutter, marshmallows, Dolly Mixtures, and tubes of decorative gel. And it all comes in a handy bag.
Just leave a comment to enter - the giveaway closes on Sunday May 1 at midnight. And though I'd love to hear from you wherever you are, I am only posting the prize within the UK.
