Chocolate Rice Krispie Marshmallow Mound

Oh the humble Rice Krispie.

The blandest of the Rice based cereal.

Not as sweet and radical as the sugary Ricicle.

Not as good a dancer/athlete as it’s ebony cousin the Coco Pop.

What it is though, is a versatile gym rat of an ingredient. It puts in the hard work pulling double duty as a breakfast and desert staple. It doesn’t carry it’s own flavour like its cousins so it can take on the flavour you want it to, in this case Marshmallows and chocolate.

It is a that brilliant level of cooking where if you are old enough to eat it then you are old enough to help make it. Get the nieces/cousins around and get cooking.
