BIG KIDS - THE RECIPIES

white choc in jug



at the request of
marta + jamieanne, here are the super-simple recipies from yesterdays post:


:: top hats ::


100g chocolate (i use a really nice belgian milk one but any type you like will work) -
20-30 marshmallows - 20-30 smarties or m + m's
  • set out 20-30 petit-four cases
  • melt the chocolate
  • pour a little chocolate into the base of each petit-four case
  • plop a marshmallow into each pool of chocolate
  • dot a little bit of chocolate on top of the marshmallows
  • pop a smartie/m + m on top
  • place in the fridge to set


:: mars bar crispie cakes ::

these are pretty much a free for all + i just chuck in what i've got in the cupboard. on saturday the ingredients were something along the lines of -

5 mars bars (milky ways in the US) - 50g milk chocolate - a splash of milk - 125g rice crispies (rice pops?) - 50g white chocolate

  • lightly grease a swiss roll tin
  • melt the mars bars + milk chocolate
  • add a splash of milk to loosen the mixture
  • stir in the crispies
  • press the mixture into your tin
  • melt the white chocolate + drizzle it excitedly over the top
  • pop in the fridge to set


:: C's smarties cookies ::

100g butter (softened) - 100g light muscavado sugar - 1 tbsp golden syrup - 150g self-raising flour - 100g smarties

  • preheat the oven to 180c
  • beat the butter + sugar together 'til light + fluffy
  • mix in the syrup
  • add half the flour + stir through
  • add the smarties with the remaining flour
  • bring dough together
  • divide into 14 balls
  • pop the balls on a baking sheet
  • bake for around 12 mins 'til golden
  • cool on a wire rack


ta-dah! if any of you try these, let me know how you get on. enjoy!
