Sweet Treats

Nutella Scrolls – defrost a few sheets of puff pastry, spread with Nutella, roll up and slice to your desired thickness, bake at 180C until golden. Once the kids are in bed, we recommend warming one up in the oven + serving with ice-cream!

Marshmallow Krispies – one the kids will love to help prepare + devour!

  • 50g Cadbury baking white chocolate, melted

Line a baking tray. Pour Rice Bubbles into a mixing bowl. Melt marshmallows and butter and a microwave safe bowl, regularly stirring until smooth. Add the marshmallow mix to the Rice Bubbles, stir thoroughly, and press down firmly into your baking tray. Drizzle over melted chocolate & sprinkle rainbow choc chips on top. Refrigerate until set, slice, and serve!
