Yes..another The English Kitchen..aka Marie recipe..
She's got a hold on cute..
I could not resist trying her little Christmas treats..I know a few little boys who may get a kick out of these..
So much fun to make..relatively inexpensive..Bulk Barn has little Christmas decorations by the lb. for next to nothing.. and they are wonderful for small hands..
Unfortunately Flake Bars seem out of favor here because we could not find one!
I found other little things..But do go see Marie's..They are priceless..
Thanks to Marie~In her exact words:
*Christmas Crispie Cakes*
Makes 8 large ones, or 12 small ones
Crisp and chocolatey and very Christmassy! Children love them!
3 ounces crisp rice cereal (3 cups)
50g of good quality milk chocolate (I use Green and Blacks) (About 2 ounces)
50g of good quality dark chocolate (Again Green and Blacks) (About 2 ounces)
a bit of melted chocolate to help adhere the decorations
sifted icing sugar
Melt both chocolates in a bowl set over simmering water. Don't allow the water to touch the bottom of the bowl. Whisk well together. Place the cereal into a bowl. Pour the chocolate over top and mix well with a spoon. Line a bun tin with paper liners. (I like to use pretty ones) Spoon in the cereal chocolate mixture, heaping it up a bit. Allow to sit at room temperature for an hour or so to set. Dust with icing sugar to look like snow. Melt a bit more chocolate and add Christmas sprinkles and decorations to suit. Chocolate Flakes cut into short lengths make great logs! If you can get some holly leaves they look pretty nice sitting on top of the logs. I used holly sprinkles and they are not as nice, but are still attractive.
Thanks so much Marie..for all the great ideas this year~
P.S. Mine made more than 12.. but they are almost bite size~
