Ribena Jelly Lollies

This is officially my first recipe since having the girls and living life with 4 kids!!! This is a simple recipe mainly because the boys are OBSESSED with Ribena at the moment and OBSESSED with lollies. So I thought I would combine the 2 for a fun summer snack! I also have a different version of jelly lollies made with fruit juice – Fruit Juice Jelly Lollies.

Add all ingredients into bowl.

Heat 4 minutes/50 degrees/Speed 2.

Pour into silicon moulds and place in fridge for a few hours to set.

Notes

TO STORE: Place in an airtight container. You can leave this on the bench for the few days (in cooler weather), however these last a few weeks in the fridge. **The jelly lollies have a crunchier/firmer texture when kept in the fridge and a wobbly softer texture when kept out on the bench. ***You can easily pop these out of silicon moulds, but if they have a more delicate design you can place these in the freezer for it to pop out easier. ****You can use any other cordial you have instead of Ribena.

Ham and Cheese Muffins

The boys loooooooooooooove these muffins!! They tastes like a bacon and cheese bread roll, but so much quicker and easier to make 😉 These muffins are just as amazing as the Vegemite and Cheese Muffins!!

I use the bacon style pieces (that you can get for pizzas) as I find they hold really well in muffins and bread rolls/scrolls. You can use your own grated cheese, but I always buy my cheese grated (my lazy self) with my favourite being the pizza blend – you get the best of everything – parmesan, tasty and mozzarella.

I also love these straight into silicon muffin tins as it gets crunchy around the bottom half of the muffin (as well as the muffin top) – whereas it sticks onto muffin cases if you use them and it kind of wastes that extra crunchiness.

Vegemite and Cheese Muffins

I love vegemite, I love cheese. Despite making all these sweet goodies, I’m actually a savoury gal at heart, so these…I can eat by the truckloads!

You can spoon these into muffin cases, or directly into a greased muffin tray. Muffin cases are easier, but I find that the cheese sticks to the muffin case so prefer to put these directly into a greased muffin tray.
