Rice Krispie chocolate cakes

I made some Rice Krispie chocolate snacks using supermarket brand crispies that were too awful to eat as cereal.  I used 3 ounces of them (100gm) with a 100gm bar of supermarket dark chocolate, 2 oz of butter and 3 tablespoons of golden syrup.

There’s not much to it.  You melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.  You add the butter cut into pieces and stir it in, then the syrup, also stirred in.  Finally you add the crispies and stir the mixture gently until the crispies are all covered, whereupon you spoon it into 12 bun cases, leave it to cool, then chill them in the fridge.  They don’t look much, but they do hold their shape and have a delicious chocolatey crunch.  They are the sort of thing that children might enjoy making because there is no real cooking involved.
