To fill a 25cm square tin and make around 12 cakes we used 25g butter :: 170g  marshmallows :: 120g rice crispy type cereal

Heat gently and stir until all the marshmallows have melted. Add the rice crispy cereal and stir gently until all the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture. Then line a baking tin with baking paper and fill with the rice crispy mixture. Flatten down the surface with the back of a spoon or wet hands. Pop the cake in the fridge to cool and go firm.

    These are so adorable!!! Super cute. We are having a Mommy & Me Book Club on Tues at our house and planned to make a snowman snack with a rice cake (do they have those in UK? dry cake similar to styrofoam lol?) – this has given me more idea on what to have as foods for the features. LOVE! Thanks for being a part of the blog hop!
