These are made from Rice Krispie Treats, or RKT as they are sometimes called. These Lollipop Mummies are easy to make, look fabulous and taste even better!
80g rice krispies
200g white chocolate
1 tube of smarties
250g white chocolate ready to roll fondant
Gently melt the butter in a large saucepan.
Add the marshmallows and stir continuously until melted.
Stir for another minute and remove from the heat.
Pour in the Rice Krispies and mix in well.
Allow to cool slightly, then turn out onto a large piece on greaseproof paper.
Spread the RKT out as much as possible.
Place another piece of greaseproof paper on top of the RKT and roll firmly – you are aiming for it to be around 1cm thick, yet compressed.
Leave to cool completely
Once cool, cut out 12 circles with a 5cm plain cutter.
Leave to one side.
Melt the white chocolate in a basin over a pan of hot water.
Working quickly spread chocolate on one side of half of the circles attaching a lollipop stick to each as you go, then spread chocolate on the other halves and sandwich them together with the lollipop sticks in between.
Leave to cool in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Re-melt the chocolate, if its too thick you can add a little vegetable oil to thin it out.
Take your lollipops, one at a time, and dip into the melted chocolate and place on baking parchment. Add the smarties as eyes before the chocolate sets, you can draw pupils on the eyes using an edible pen.
These are scary mummies remember – they don’t have to be perfectly smooth!
Place back in the fridge to set.
Using your white chocolate fondant, roll out and cut narrow strips. These don’t have to be exact – remember, they’re bandages!
Wrap the bandages around the mummies, cutting off any excess.
