Sometimes you just need a sticky, pink, sweet snack with extra sprinkles.
Sometimes you just need a big piece of this fairy fudge!
Fairy fudge isn’t really fudge at all. It’s just pink rice bubble slice (rice krispy treats if you happen to live on the other side of the world) with some add-ins and extra sprinkles. But my kids named it ‘fairy fudge’ the first time we made it because it looked like something the fairies would eat, and the name has stuck.
It’s super easy to make. There is no baking required, and you can do the melting part in the microwave, so it’s perfect for the kids to have a go at cooking.
You can add in whatever extras you like – choc chips, glace cherries, dried apricots, cranberries, cut up jelly lollies (candies), cut up chocolate bars – but whatever you do, don’t forget the sprinkles!
- 250 gm marshmallows (make sure you get pink ones!)
- 60 gm butter
- 6 cups of rice bubbles (the cheapest you can buy)
- 1-2 cups of add-ins - choc chips, extra marshmallows, dried fruit, lollies/candy
- In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave for about 40 seconds, be careful not to overheat them.
- Stir the melted mixture well, then add the rice bubbles and add-ins
- Spread the mixture into slice tin or a Tupperware slice container and push down firmly.
- Add lots and lots of sprinkles to the top and pop it in the fridge to set.
