Tasty Thursdays

This week's recipe should be a blast from the past for a lot of you - Crispy Cakes!

I made these on Monday after my exam as I needed a chocolate fix! Apologies for the lack of photos, my iPhone battery is playing up, so it was in my room charging.

It's a bit of an unusual recipe (I found it online when I was looking for measurements) as it uses syrup. I've never used syrup in crispy cakes before, just chocolate, but I'd definitely recommend it, it makes them more chewy and gooey than without. This is just the recipe I used, you can variate from it quite a lot - try Mars Bars or marshmallows melted in with the chocolate if you fancy something a bit different!

Crispy Cakes (makes 10-12, depending on case size)

You will need:
  • 90g rice krispies
  • 60g butter, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons maple/golden syrup (golden is more subtle and less strong, but I only had maple!)
  • 100g chocolate
  • Cake/muffin cases

  1.  Melt the chocolate, either in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water, or in short bursts in the microwave.
  2. Mix the butter into the melted chocolate (you shouldn't need to heat it any more to melt it, the residual heat from the chocolate should be enough).
  3. Add the syrup.
  4. Spoon into cake cases and leave to set in the fridge.
