  • 150g dark chocolate, broken into pieces (70% cocoa solids is good)
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g Rice Krispies cereal
  • 50g dried blueberry
  • 50g dried cranberry


    A tart, ruby-red coloured berry which grows wild on shrubs throughout northern Europe and North…

  • 100g mini marshmallow
  • 50g white chocolate, broken into pieces
  • jelly snakes and bugs, to decorate


  1. Line a 20cm square tin with baking parchment or cling film. Place the dark chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat and stir until melted.

  2. Put the Rice Krispies in a large bowl and mix in the blueberries, cranberries and marshmallows. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture until everything is well-coated. Spoon the mixture into the tin and spread out evenly. Chill in the fridge for an hour until set (or make the day before and chill overnight).

  3. Remove from tin and peel away paper or cling film. Using a sharp knife, cut into 16 squares or 32 bite-size pieces. Melt the white chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of barely-simmering water, or in the microwave on High for 1 min, stirring half way. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the white chocolate over the squares. Scatter with the jelly sweets, then allow to set before piling onto a serving plate. Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

I made these with my 4 year old for supper with friends yesterday. I used milk chocolate instead of dark (topping up to the correct quantity with milk buttons!!) We also swopped the blueberries for diced, dried apricots. They went down a treat with children & adults alike! Will certainly make again!

Really love these. The children had far too many easter eggs so I melted them and made these therefore didnt use dark choc. I used about 180g choc and 150g coco-pops. I didnt have any blueberries so used 75g cranberries instead. Didnt bother adding the jelly sweetts on the top. A real winner. Might try using cherries next time. So quick and easy to make.

Very popular even at an adults halloween party!!
The marshmallows in the squares made them chewy which was lovely and the dried fruit swelled up in the heat of the chocolate sauce even more yummy.
