Someone on Twitter was interested in my “recipe” for fake Scotch eggs, which isn’t so much a recipe as a technique. You can buy the mini creme eggs online, but they’re available in stores before Easter.
1 box Cadbury mini creme eggs (they come 12 to a box, in a little thing that looks like an egg carton)
3 Tbsp butter
1 10-oz bag mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies
At least an hour before making the rice krispie treats, unwrap each of the mini eggs, place back into carton, and place in freezer (so they won’t melt when you put the hot rice krispie treat around it).
In a large pot, melt butter and marshmallows. When fully melted, remove from heat and mix in the rice krispies until combined.
Spray hands liberally with baking spray, then scoop out enough rice mixture to fit in your hand. Place one mini egg in the center and form the rice around it. Shape into an egg or oval shape. Press firmly to make sure everything sticks together. Keep spraying your hands between each one because otherwise things will get very sticky!
