  1. Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl with the butter and golden syrup and gently melt in 10-second bursts in the microwave, or melt it over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir until smooth, then take off the heat and stir in the rice pops, coating them gently with the chocolate until they are all completely covered.

  2. Divide the mixture between nine cupcake or 12 fairy cake paper cases – it’s easier if you slide these into a muffin tin as it will help them hold their shape. Leave to set. If you want them to set faster, put in the fridge for 1 hr.

  3. Drizzle with a little melted chocolate and decorate with sweets, dried fruit or nuts while they are still wet enough to stick them on. Will keep in an airtight container for five days.

I have just made this with my 5 year old son. They’re very tasty- we just about managed to wait for them set! I agree with the other comments about less butter and Rice Krispies for a more thicker coverage.

Too much butter, 50g would be plenty. I used muffin cases, made 12 lovely sized cakes with 100g of crisps.

Reliable recipe. The ratio of rice crispies to choc mixture worked well for me. I made 36 mini ones.

You don't need 100g of rice crispies, I used 100 and it was over 20 cases worth and not very chocolatey. Reccomend you change to using 60-70g of rice crispies.

Yes you dont need 100g, 60 to 70 is perfect. My daughter and husband didnt use that much when they did rice krispie cakes

Good, but you need far more paper cases than stated, I used 23 fairy cake cases piled high. Rather expensive to make because of cost of the chocolate
