What to do??? ….what to do???? we don’t want to do the normal crafts or be healthy…So why not pimp that snack…
Firstly we need to get a team together….it’ll be such a large cake that we will need lots of hands and plenty of mouths…so our ranger group meets to make the largest crispy cake we’ve ever seen….(Well actually we all wanted to eat copious amounts of chocolate crispies without seeming greedy….So its a good alibi for our parents!)
One cold monday night, we work away, as fast as we can to build the mighty crispy cake!?
Several bowls are needed – and a team with many hands – to break and melt the chocolate….but remember if you decide to melt it over a bowl of water – do not let the?water get into the chocolate – cos as Emma and Jess experienced….it turns into a strange tasting paste…..
With the chocolate melted -simply – shovel and stir in the rice crispies with whatever size spoon you can find! Pour into a large bucket and stir and stir and stir with all your might – And most members of your team!?(Use a clean bucket of course…this is a plastering bucket…but it is new and clean and has no germs!) ..it was supposed to be smaller but there was a mix up with how large we exactly wanted the bucket- and it ended up huge instead…
Keep stirring whilst others of you make the case….this is the boring bit…
Make the case out of the cardboard cereal packets. You will need 4 packets to be split open to give a flat piece of cardboard – then each one needs to be slit in the middle, up to half way?
point.? The 1st 2 packets need to be slotted into each other, and then the 2nd two. Attach with tape in the middle and bend edges upwards to create a ‘lip’ on the base! With a large piece of paper, fold (like a fan!) for the entire length that it will take to fit around the base. Attach with tape and fill with greaseproof paper. Case is ready!
Go back to the bucket of rice crispy loveliness where there should be the same amount of crispies left…however…in our ‘pimping’ it is believed that?several members of the group stuffed their mouths with chocolatey goodness in secret…..
Transfer the mixture into the cake case – grab any implement you can!
And here we have the finished mighty crispy cake…as simple as you like but took more than 30 mouths to eat…and we’re talking ladles full each….(kate)
Scary eh?! Yes…both us and the size of the cake!
Please put this on the website as we believe we’ve done a fair job in pimping that crispy cake – just look at teh size…you cant deny its big…and i think its definitely been pimped…maybe its been done before…but its good!
Thanks for such a great craft to do beats anything else!
