    Ingredients

    • 25g butter
    • 150g pack white mini marshmallows
    • ½ tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
    • 75g Essential Rice Pops
    • 1 Edible glue, for sticking
    • 8 black seedless grapes
    • ¼ 150g pack dried blueberries
    • 16 edible eyes

    Method

    1. Put the butter, mini marshmallows and vanilla into a large saucepan. Heat gently, stirring often, until melted. Meanwhile, line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

    2. Stir the rice pops into the melted marshmallow mixture until thoroughly coated.

    3. Using 2 tablespoons, make 8 large mounds with sticky rice pop mixture, placing them onto the prepared tray as you go. Use 2 squares of baking parchment to cover your fingers, then shape into rough, textured ovals. Set aside until firm.

    4. Using the edible glue, stick a grape onto the front of each oval to make a face, holding it in place until firmly affixed. Stick the blueberries on either side as ears, then stick on the edible eyes. Finish by sticking a blueberry onto the 4 corners of each body to make the feet.

    Cook’s tip

    Colour some desiccated coconut with green food gel to make a grassy field for your flock.  Then decorate the grass with Cook’s Ingredients Bee and Daisy Icing Decorations.
