Chocolate Krispies

To make 5 large bars or ten little nests (double this if you are having hungry friends round!)

Ingredients
 1 oz butter
1 oz (1 tbsp) castor sugar
2 oz (1 tbsp) golden syrup
3/4 oz (1 level tbsp) cocoa powder
1 1/2 oz (7 tbsp) rice pops

Optional: 1 tsp grated orange peel

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a pan and add the syrup and the sugar. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Add the cocoa powder and mix well.
  2. Fold in the rice pops (add the orange peel now if available).
  3. Mix until the rice is well coated. Turn out into a non-stick loaf tin and press down with the backs of your fingers. Alternatively form into nests or clumps in paper cake cases.
  4. Allow to cool. 
  5. Cut the block into bars when almost cool, using a plastic spatula.
