Chocolate snowballs

So the second thing I chose to make for my son's school Christmas fair was these - Chocolate snowballs. What kids doesn't love a rice crispy cake?!

They're really easy to make just slightly more time consuming to achieve their shape but it's simple to do.

This recipe makes about 18

You need: 
50g rice crispies
30g chopped raisins 
50g butter
100g milk chocolate 
2tbsp crunchy peanut butter
30g mini marshmallows
80g milk chocolate to top
Edible Christmas decorations 

In a large bowl mix the rice crispies and raisins. 

In a small pan, gently heat the butter, chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallows until the chocolate has melted and the marshmallows are beginning to melt 

Pour over the rice crispies and raisins and mix to combine. To create the dome shape you need an egg cup. Line it with cling film and pop about a tablespoon of the mixture in and squash down. 

Gently pop out the dome and put into a cake case flat side down. The mixture is sticky enough to hold the shape. Repeat using the same piece of cling film. Once you've used up all the mixture, leave them to harden at room temperature or in the fridge. 

Melt the chocolate and dollop onto the top of each dome and top each one with an edible decoration. I found some white snowflakes but you could also use white chocolate and top with mini holly leaves
