Fairy Fudge

fairy fudge
This is really just hyped up, super girly, rice bubble slice (rice krispies treat if you live on the other side of the world), but the girls began calling it fairy fudge a long time ago and now we all do. Thanks to Nanny Pickle, here is the super easy recipe.

250 gm marshmallows (that’s a whole packet and make sure you get pink ones as it makes the whole slice pinkish and fairy-ish)
60 gm butter
6 cups of rice bubbles (the cheapest you can buy)

Optional –
100s and 1000s (sprinkles)
glace cherries or other dried fruit chopped
choc chips (white or milk)

Melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave for about 40 seconds, be careful not to over heat them. Stir to combine, then add the rice bubbles and the choc chips and/or cherries/fruit if desired. Spread the mixture into slice tin or a Tupperware slice container and push down firmly. If desired, sprinkle with 100s and 1000s or drizzle with melted chocolate and pop it in the fridge to set.

You can vary recipe depending on how many marshmallows you have, if you have less than required just add a little bit more butter. If you don’t have the 6 cups of rice bubbles just use less marshmallows and less butter. Don’t be tempted to use more marshmallows as you’ll risk it turning into a big huge sticky mess.

    I wish I had seen this earlier! Last week I bought 5 huge packs of marshmallows and had to separate (and eat) all the pink ones, becaus ei need the white ones for something else. D’OH!

    I’ve been making these for at least 30 years (one of the first things I learned how to cook when i was a kid living on the other side of the world), but not once, never ever had I thought about putting sprinkles or anything else on top. Doh! I now know what I will be doing the next time I make them,

    But another hint for them. Instead of putting them into a baking pan and cutting into cube-like shapes, pour them out and press down onto a greased cookie sheet, so they are rather flatish, then when cooled, use cookie cutters to make shapes like stars and hearts.


  1. […] Fairy Fudge – This is our version of Rice Krispy treats and I think if you used plain white marshmallows, christmas sprinkles and cut them into star shapes (inspired by A Pretty Cool Life’s Valentine Rice Krispy Treats) they’d be perfect for Christmas! […]
