This is a great and simple recipe to make with the kids over Easter. Here, we’ve used rice krispies but you could substitute for cornflakes or shredded wheat if preferred. One word of caution – please be very careful with the chocolate mix once melted as it can get very hot (let the adults handle until it’s cooled). Top tip when cooking with kids! It’s best to get all of your ingredients and equipment out and ready to use before starting to cook with your child – it means you’ll have everything to hand and won’t be running off to find something at the back of the fridge while they busily help themselves to the chocolate and throwing the rice krispies on the floor (yes – learn from our mistakes!).
- 100g chocolate (dark, milk or white…it’s your choice)
- 3 tablespoons golden syrup (we like to use the squeezy bottles – less mess and the kids enjoy squeezing it out!)
- 50g butter
- 100g rice krispies
- Weighing scales
- Microwaveable bowl
- Mixing bowl
- Wooden spoon
- Soup spoon (we find that kids find the shape easier to scoop out the mix and pop in to the muffin cups)
- 12 muffin cases
- Muffin baking tray (to hold 12)
and simmer gently, then place your bowl so that it’s a snug fit on top of the saucepan and stir until the chocolate mix has melted.
