Looking for bright and colourful ideas for Easter this year lead me to find these gorgeous little things at Kitchen Simplicity.
They are incredibly simple to make – once you work out how to mold them, and they look so divine!
Cheri says to wet your hands so as to make the forming of the eggs easier. I went the latex glove route, just to be sure, wet them and then dove into the mixture….
OMG! It was like dealing with some hyper viscous, glue demon. I could not get it off my hands, there were strings of marshmallow flying around the kitchen and no sign of the Rice Bubbles even coming close to forming a ball.
About to give up and go the way of Cheri’s other idea of forming a slice rather than going through the work of making eggs; I decided to take off the gloves, get my greased spoon and use plastic wrap to control the unruly Rice Bubble mixture (inspired by Heston Blumenthal’s scotch egg recipe that I had watched the previous night – thankfully!) and it worked – beautifully!
I will definitely be doing these again next year, maybe with white chocolate and different food colourings for a more rainbow look.
