5 x 200g Tesco value chocolate bars (and yes, we are cheap!)
1 x box of Tesco "Rice Snaps"
1 x bag of Tesco toffee
Assorted kitchen utensils and a fridge/freezer/cool wet sack (came in very handy!)
We didn’t really have a plan, so we just blagged it and this is what happened…..
We lined our tin with greaseproof paper, so that later removal was easier, and melted 2 bars of chocolate in the microwave.
Pour said chocolate into the tin and voila! mould complete
So that we had maximum side coverage (sidage, if you will) we "painted" the chocolate up the sides of the tin as it dried (kinda dull, but necessary!)
Hastily put the mixture into the fridge, so it slightly hardens.
Then we needed toffee….and lots of it. So we melted down the entire bag of Tesco toffee (important REMOVE WRAPPERS!!) which created a very large gooey mess.
Pour half of the toffee into the tin, which started re-melting the chocolate – didn’t think of that one beforehand! So we had a slight panic, involving quick pouring into the tin, and putting it straight back into the fridge!
Then, from our "dissection" of a normal toffee crisp, we discovered we needed toffee and rice mixed together! Sop we mixed a lorra lot of rice snaps with toffee and mixed like we’d never mixed before!!
Pour the sticky goo-ness into the tin
and, guess what….back in the fridge!!
Then we thought we still had rather a lot of chocolate and rice snaps left, so we made chocolate-y-rice-snap-goodness with 2 more choccy bars and lots and lots of rice snaps!
Poured it into to the tin, after a scattering of more rice snaps, and….back to the fridge!
Melt down the last choccy bar, and spread it over the top of the entire concoction!!
Then, as it was cooling (in the fridge…suprise, suprsie) we had rather a lot of goo left so….we ate it!! But after feeling slightly ill, we decided against this idea, and made crispie cakes!
The next day……it was ready….
Then it was presented to the birthday boy!!
Happy 18th Joe!!!!
