Hi, I need to make about 40 of these for a birthday party on wednesday. Never made them before and I assumed it was just melted chocolate mixed with the rice krispies, but someone has told me they are better if you put butter and syrup in as well. They can't remember how much to use, though.

I've Googled it but keep getting such differing amounts that I'm totally confused now.

I've also bought MILK chocolate, is that ok?

I just melt the choc & throw in the rice crispies. Never had any complants!

Milk is fine, use whichever you want! Although I find it better with normal, not cooking chocolate.

Agree just choc is fine. Also yummy is 50g Mars Bars (2 bars), 50g of butter, 50 g of marshmellows all melted together and pour over 100g of rice crispies.

You can put this in a larget in,(lightly buttered) and then cut up rather than cases.

I would imagine tho, butter & syrup would make them very rich.

That sounds great Love... I have been looking for different things to make so will try that!

Just chocolate will work fine. The butter and syrup ones often don't set which is exceptionally annoying IME.

1oz butter and 1oz Rice Krispies per 50g mars bar gives the best mars bar krispie cakes.

BTW it will look gross when its melting grin

I make these with butter and syrup and it is nice - makes them a bit stickier. The reason you're seeing varying amounts is it doesn't matter that much.

Last time I did them I used two dessert spoons of syrup and a chunk of butter for approx 120g choc. Milk choc is fine but I expect u will need less butter as it's already softer than plain. You can always add more if it looks too thick.

Love....do you set that in the fridge?

Thanks, everyone, I guess i'll try them with just a bit of butter and syrup then. Don't want them TOO sticky and rich, but don't want rock hard ones either.

I was a bit wary about the amounts because I while ago i tried a load of chocolate cornflake cakes from here
for DS school and I think I put way too much syrup in, they didn't set well and were very, very sickly-sweet.

My mum's making the chewy krispie squares for me as well. She used to make them for my parties when I was little and all the kids loved them. I never saw them anywhere else till Kellogs brought out those Rice Krispie Squares in the blue wrappers. They taste like them.

3 oz butter
3 oz slab toffee or loose toffees
3 oz marshmallows
4 oz Rice krispies

Melt all the things together over a low heat, then just stir in the rice crispies, press into a flat baking tin and leave to set. Cut into squares and enjoy!

No you don't need to put in the fridge but would speed it up a bit
