I shove it in microwave and nuke it for a bit. Then stir and its done.

Burnt chocolate tastes nice though to me blush

I'm wondering if I roll it into balls and cover it in icing sugar could I pass it off as chocolate snow balls?

It is to take to DD's friends for pudding though...

You can salvage it by adding a bit of milk then stirring it over heat (only thing I learnt in home ec!).

Don't use chocolate.
Melt half pack butter
Two tablespoons golden syrup.
One tablespoon cocoa
1I pack marshmallows
Melt all together in a large pan
Add cereal
Spread out on a large rectangle tray lined with grease proof
Put in the fridge for a hour

Best ones you will ever eat grin

Do peppermint creams instead,

Mix icing sugar with water

Add food favouring and/or add food colouring.

Roll into balls press flat, use fork prongs to mark half the sweet

Throw in fridge, jobs done.

Right I couldn't rescuse the first attempt as it was half scoffed by DD while I was in the study. Cheeky mare!

Attempt two went to shit in the microwave as well. I swear its the golden syrup as all was fecking peachy before I squirted it in. The milk trick - amazing!! I have never heard about that before!

DD is now licking the table to collect any flakes which jumped out of the cases.

What setting do you put the micro on? I put it on defrost for a few minutes at a time, then mix the chocolate up and put it back in for another few mimuntes on defrost until it's all melted. It shouldn't burn on defrost.

Also - don't try to melt too much in one go, make a small batch to start off with.
