Cooking With Kids. Carrot Shaped Crispy Cakes

Its been a while since we did some baking and shared the recipe, but with Easter just around the corner it would be rude not to share a fun Easter bake! We were going to make something similar to last years Caramel Egg Crispy Cakes but last minute...when I couldn't find our rectangle baking tray I changed my mind and decided that our round baking tin would be perfect to make some carrot shaped crispy cakes!

What you need: (makes 8)

1/4 cup butter
1 bag Marshmallows
5 cups of Rice Krispies (or similar cereal)
1 bag of mini eggs (crushed with a wooden rolling pin)
Orange gel colouring
Cake pop sticks
Sticky tape 
Green card/felt/paper cut into carrot tops. 

Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, add the marshmallows, stir and put in the microwave for another 2 minutes until they are melted too. Stir in some food colouring, until you get the shade you desire. Then add the rice crispies and mini eggs and give it a good stir.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and spoon the mixture into the tray squishing down as you go to make sure it all sticks together! Leave to set for a couple of hours before cutting into triangles. 

Push the cake pop stick through the long top end and stick the carrot tops on with a bit of sticky tape.
