How To Make Chocolate Crispy Cakes

Chocolate Crispies – The Taste Of Childhood

Step 1

Pop the chocolate, butter and Lyle's Golden Syrup in a heatproof bowl and set it over a pan of simmering water for about 5 minutes – stirring from time to time until it's melted and smooth (don't let the bowl base touch the water).

Step 2

Remove from the heat and then gently stir in the cereal with a metal spoon until completely covered in chocolate.

Step 3

Scoop the mixture into paper cake cases in a 12-hole muffin tin and then chill in the fridge for about 1 hour or until the chocolate has set. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to eat (they keep for about a week – if they make it that far!)
