Feeling festive - Rice Krispie Cakes with a Twist






The lead up to Christmas is always an exciting time as my house starts filling up with all sorts of snacks! To get into the festive mood, I was asked to get involved with Wren's Christmas Kitchen campaign to create a Christmas recipe with a unique twist! I decided to create some oh-so simple Rice Krispie cakes with a little festive flavouring and decoration.

I had actually seen a recipe of Pinterest to make some Rice Krispie Christmas Trees (which you can see here if you'd like to have a go!) but as my attempt didn't turn out quite to plan I fashioned them into normal Rice Krispie cakes with a festive twist by adding white chocolate, caramel flavouring and of course some Christmas decorations.

For this recipe I used:

  • White chocolate (200g)
  • Rice Krispies (200g)
  • Caramel Flavouring
  • Festive decorations
  • You can also experiment by using milk or dark chocolate with orange or hazelnut flavouring
Simply melt the chocolate, stir in the Rice Krispies, spoon into cake cases and leave to set in the fridge. Once cooled and the cakes have completely solidified, you can add icing and decorations!

To make them extra festive you can mould them into cone shapes and turn them into Christmas trees with green food dye, or add Christmas flavours like chocolate orange, hazelnut, gingerbread or toffee! Enjoy!
