On the weekend, we took a little drive down to Portsmouth to have a look around the shopping outlets, see the sea and get some really decent fish and chips. I have had the biggest craving for ages, but since I have been trying to lose weight (1lb to go until its 1st!) I had put it off. So I took my opportunity and found a great little place called The Boat Deck on the South Parade Pier:
It was honestly, the best fish and chips I had eaten, and the best part was that I could be with my two very best friends which made it even better. So since I love them dearly, I thought they needed a little treat for when we got there after an hour or so; I had made these the evening before purely because they were so so easy and quick to do – involved no baking and minimal mess = perfect. I remember having these when I was little and my mum still loves them! Great for little kiddies to make and enjoy because they’re small and bitesized.
- 225 g plain chocolate (39%) – I would probably advise using a bit more, maybe 275 g
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 50 g butter
- 75 g cornflakes OR Rice Ctrispies
- Break the chocolate into pieces and put into a medium saucepan along with the syrup and butter. Allow it to melt over a low heat and stir occasionally. While melting, put 12 (it says it makes 18 but I only managed 12 small ones) cake cases onto a large baking tray.
- Add the cornflakes to the pan and stir gently until all evenly coated in the chocolate mix.
- Spoon into the cases and leave to chill in the fridge to set.
