Easter Treats -Crispy Crackles – Recipe


DSCF0888

These little cakes are just right for a snack during Easter-tide and they look good on the Easter table too.

Here are the ingredients:

2 ozs butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

2 ozs Cadbury’s drinking chocolate

2 ozs Kellog’s Cornflakes

For my American readers, I’m not quite sure what you would substitute for the golden syrup? Maybe molasses? What do you think?

For the drinking chocolate, you could use a sachet (or two) of instant cocoa powder.

The recipe says 16, but I usually make 12. Line a muffin tin with paper cases.

Method:

Melt the butter, syrup and drinking chocolate in a medium sized saucepan over a slow heat. Stir a little while it’s melting. When melted, pour over the cornflakes in a large mixing bowl. You can substitute Rice Crispies here if you prefer.

When the cornflakes are covered (I like to leave some of my cornflakes showing), use a tablespoon to spoon the mix into the muffin cases and put a Cadbury’s mini egg on top. Leave to cool.

Cools very quickly.

They are ready to eat in less than half an hour.

Easter Treats


DSCF0888

Yesterday was a wonderful day, here in the cottage.  On Saturday night we put the clocks forward. Yes I know what you’re thinking, but we’re always a little later here in England. The lady vicar at church was very accommodating and put the service forward an hour so it started at 10 a.m. instead of 9 a.m. I was grateful for that.  The Easter Service was wonderful, with a full church and hardly any spaces. This was achieved by combining the early morning service with the late morning service so we got to meet lots of people we didn’t usually get to see on a weekly basis.

The Easter Treats above are called ‘Crispy Crackles’. I’ll be posting the recipe soon.

How did you spend your Easter Day?  Was it joyful?
