Kids will love making these easy chocolate toffee crispy cakes. They’d be perfect if you’re catering for a kids birthday party, too.
- 100g toffees
- 100g unsalted butter
- 100g marshmallows
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 100g Rice Krispies or corn flakes
- Put 24 paper or foil cake cases into fairy cake trays. If you don’t have these trays, just rest the cases on a large platter. Put the toffees, butter and marshmallows in a pan. Heat very gently, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until everything has melted and the mixture is smooth – this will only take 3 minutes. Add the cocoa powder and mix together.
- Take the pan off the heat. Carefully mix in the cereal – it will be very hot. Using 2 spoons, spoon the mixture into the paper cases. Leave in a cool place for at least 1 hour to set. Keep in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 3 days.
You might want to double the recipe so that you can have some, too! If you want to make plain crispy cakes, just leave out the cocoa powder.
