We recently went to Glastonbury (okay it was like a month ago but we’re not over our Glastonbury blues yet) and wanted to make some delicious treats to take with us and share with our friends. So we settled on these amazing rice crispy treats, partially because chocolate (yes that is reason enough) and also because they are super quick and easy and we’d left everything till last minute…
Essentially this traybake is our way of taking the humble rice crispy cake to the next level, with added golden syrup for gooey-ness and chocolate treats hidden throughout. We chose to put Malteasers, Rolos and Crunchie Rocks in ours, for the different tastes and textures (and because who doesn’t want to find a little pocket of caramel yummy-ness in their mouthful?).
- 250g Rice Crispies
- 500g Chocolate
- 50g Butter
- 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
- 300g Chocolate treats of your choice
- Sprinkles and edible glitter for decoration
- Melt 400g of the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.
- Once fully melted start incorporating the rice crispys gradually.
- After about half the rice crispys have been mixed in, add in the golden syrup.
- Continue adding in the rice crispys until the are all combined.
- Add in the chocolate treats of your choice and mix again until they are spread evenly through the mixture.
- Spoon the chocolatey goodness into a lined baking tray (we used 2 9x13" ones) and pat down so the mixture is evenly spread and compacted in the tins.
- Melt the remaining chocolate and drizzle over the top of the mixture, then add as little or as much sprinkles as you like (we think the glittery-er the better!)
- Allow to set in a cool place, once completely set remove from the tins and cut up into squares.
- We found breaking up the chocolate treats we added made them easier to incorporate, so smashed up the Malteasers and Crunchie Rocks before adding them.
After a slight transportation mishap, they ending up getting slightly destroyed en route, however still tasted great and were enjoyed by all, including Phil (our saviour/kindest man ever) this bake is dedicated to him.
