I know that this is a staple child cookery recipe, but it always seemed so dull... every child under the sun had made some, and these things always taste a bit sweet and sickly... But we ran out of flour this morning and Reuben was determined to make some sort of cupcake. So we looked through the pantry and I came across a bag of very yummy and expensive fair trade Barry Callebaut chocolate, so I thought: why not? And they were very good indeed!
This is how we made them:
225g good quality plain chocolate
2 tablespoons golden syrup
100g rice krispies
We melted the chocolate, butter and syrup (could use a saucepan or the microwave), then added the rice krispies and mixed it all together. We put 12 deep paper cases (the muffin ones) in a baking tray (the ones with shallow pans), filled them with the mixture and put the tray in the fridge for an hour. We kept them in the fridge until we were ready to eat them. Yummy!!!
