Yield: 20

Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 marshmallow Easter eggs (any flavour), unwrapped
  • 60 g SPAR margarine - brick type
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 1 litre Rice Krispie cereal (4 Cups)
  • 250 ml coconut
  • Optional topping: melted white chocolate

Recipe Method

  1. Place the marshmallow Easter eggs and margarine together in a pot over low heat.
  2. Once the ingredients begin to melt, keep stirring until an even molten mixture results.
  3. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in the essence, cereal and coconut. Spoon the mixture into 2 greased SPAR Good Living non-stick loaf pans, pressing down firmly to compact.
  4. Chill until firm enough to tap out onto a chopping board and slice into bars.
  5. Optional: Drizzle melted chocolate over the tops and set aside to harden.

Hints & Tips

Press this mixture into the base and sides of a greased spring-form cake tin. Fill with SPAR chocolate ice-cream, and freeze.
Slice and serve wedges as an Easter dessert. Sprinkle speckled chocolate hen's eggs in clusters on top of each slice as you serve.
