These marshmallow crispy squares are a great kids treat, contain four ingredients and are really easy to make. You mix melted marshmallows with rice crispies, vanilla essence and butter then put the mixture in the fridge to harden. I found the recipe on http://www.allrecipes.co.uk when I was looking for very low effort school fair recipes! The school fair organiser said anything topped with a chocolate button or sweet sells instantly, hence the smarties.
Marshmallow crispy squares (makes around 12)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
100g rice crispies (or similar)
Grease a smallish baking tray with butter or margarine, or line it with greaseproof paper.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the vanilla. Melt the marshmallows into the butter, stirring. Add the rice crispies when the marshmallows have melted and stir until they are coated. Quickly pour into the prepared tin and press down tightly and evenly. Top with chocolate buttons if you like!
Let set for 2 to 3 hours. Cut into squares.
