In Australia they’re called LCMs in the United States they’re called Rice Krispies, but no matter how you say it these sticky rice bubble marshmallow treats are a delicious filling for our valentines chocolate kisses!
Rice Bubble Marshmallow Treats
To make these rice bubble marshmallow treat filled chocolate kisses you’ll need a chocolate mould. Ours is $8.50 from Confectionately Yours in Perth. Be sure to use specialty food colouring made for chocolate, if you can’t find that try using pre coloured white chocolate made for cake pops.
1 bag (about 280g) white and pink marshmallows
6 cups rice bubbles
4 tbsp softened butter
Confetti heart sprinkles
200g white chocolate, melted
Pink oil based food colouring
Carefully melt the white chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring well between each interval until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Add as much colouring as you’d like to create a lovely shade of pink. You could continue adding colour as you work to create lips in different shades of pink as we have.
Spoon some of the white chocolate into a mould cavity and swirl it around to cover the whole mould. Tip over the top of your bowl of chocolate and tap out the excess. Chill and repeat to create a chocolate shell.
To create your rice bubble marshmallow treats, melt together the marshmallows and butter in the microwave. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring well each time.
In a large bowl combine the melted marshmallow mixture and the rice bubbles. Stir well to combine and add confetti heart sprinkles and mix through.
Use two spoons to press the rice bubble marshmallow treat mixture into the chocolate lined mould cavities. Keep the spoon that you’re using to press the mixture into the mould wet, this will stop the sticky mixture from sticking to your spoon instead of staying in the mould.
Use the remaining chocolate to cover the backs of the moulds. Use a flat knife to scrape away the excess, and chill.
When you’re ready to spoil your valentine, pop out your chocolate kisses and enjoy!
