Dished Up: Top Hats

For my daughter's birthday I was keen to make a little treat for her to give to the children at preschool. Naturally she was keen to help! So together we made some Top Hats. These are not a new recipe but something that Zoe and I had as children. They are really easy to make but quite delicious whether you are 3 or 30!

What you need:
200g Chocolate
35 Marshmallows
35 Smarties
mini cake cases

What you do:
1. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan a barely simmering water. Make sure that the bowl does not touch the water. When the chocolate is all melted turn the heat down but leave the chocolate over the pan and stir it often.
2. Place about a teaspoon of the chocolate in a cake case. Push a marshmallows gently into the chocolate.
3. Dab a small blob of chocolate on top of the marshmallow and top with a smartie.
4. Repeat until you run out of chocolate and leave to set. If you cant wait to eat them then pop them in the fridge to speed up the process.

The recipe should make around 35 Top Hats which give you just enough for a class of children with a few spare for you to enjoy with a cuppa. Cassie xx
