Preparation: 20 minutes / Cooking Time: 2-3 minutes plus 35 minutes setting / Makes: Approx. 18
60g rice bubbles
Oil, to grease
A few drops of red food colouring
150g of white chocolate, melted
Step 1: Line a large tray with baking paper and then place the rice bubbles into a large bowl and make a well in the center. Place the butter and marshmallows into a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes or until the mixture is combined well and smooth.
Step 2: Add the butter mixture to the rice bubbles and stir well until combined. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.
Step 3: Rub your hands with oil to prevent the mixture from sticking, then take a heaped tablespoon of the mixture and place in onto a work bench. Use your fingertips to shape into a ball and then transfer it to a tray. Repeat with the remaining mixture and then refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
Step 4: Mix a few drops of red food colouring into the melted chocolate to make a fleshy pink colour, transfer into a small piping bag fitted with a very narrow nozzle. Pipe squiggly lines all over the balls, leave for a few minutes to set and then insert a popsicle stick into each ball before serving.
