Monsterous Marshmallow Squares

Hello Everybody!

Halloween is literally just around the corner and that means it’s the perfect excuse to bake ~all~ the halloweeny treats your spooky lil’ heart desires. I made these delicious marshmallow squares for my fam as I can’t actually eat them myself but I was told they were super yummy. I got this recipe from the Nigella Lawson site and it worked a treat (no pun intended) although I did tweek it a bit so here’s my take on it.

You will need:

  • 45g of butter
  • 300g of mini marshmallows or
  • 4 JUMBO marshmallows (I’m talking the size of your fist)
  • 180g of rice krispies (or just as much as you need)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • edible decorations (optional)

What to do:

  • Melt the butter in a bowl over boiling water (this is a lot less messy than melting it directly into a saucepan)
  • Add your marshmallows and stir continuously until they melt and are all blended together nicely
  • Add the cup of milk (I did this because the mixture went quite thick and I needed it to be slightly more runny)
  • Add your rice krispies and stir until they’re all covered in the marshmallowy goo
  • Spread your (now very sticky) rice krispies onto a tray of whatever size and shape ya like
  • Sprinkle your decorations on top (in the spirit of Halloween, I went for purple glitter and wee black and white skulls and cross-bones.

Ta-dah! Obvs let them set a bit before digging in and there you have it- delicious and oh so simple Halloween treats!

Have you done any Halloween baking this year? Comment links to your posts if you have; I’d love to have a read.

Until next time…
