PS Did we mention it’s free? 


  • Puffed Rice Cereal (or any other breakfast cereal) – we measured by eye!
  • Milk Chocolate (about 200g)
  • For decorations you can use Chocolate Sprinkles, Hundreds & Thousands, Mini Marshmallows or anything else you fancy!!


  1. Melt the chocolate. We heated water in a saucepan, then placed a bowl over the simmering water. Break up the chocolate and place in the bowl until it melts. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add the melted chocolate to the Rice Krispie cereal. Use a large bowl and stir gently so you don’t crush the cereal. We just kept adding more cereal until all the chocolate was used up and all the cereal was coated.
  3. Scoop the mixture into cupcake cases, and then you’re ready to decorate!
  4. Put in the fridge until set – then enjoy.

Here are our various creations:
