Trick or treat bites – a Halloween party recipe
Why make Trick or Treat bites? Despite the fact that my two are now too big to fit into the cute costumes and have graduated into those outfits that would make Nell Gwynne blush, they still love the idea of Trick or Treating. Nowadays they have to use a much younger relative as an excuse to knock on doors and fill buckets with sweeties. If you do have a Halloween party or just would like a treat rather than a trick then these bites are for you. The treat is in the chocolate, the trick is in the hidden popping candy!
100g shortcake biscuits
100g digestive biscuits
25g rice crispies
125g butter or margarine (melted)
1 tbsp golden syrup
popping candy (mine is from Asda)
Halloween sprinkles (mine were from Aldi)
100g bar of chocolate, milk or plain as you prefer
6″ by 6″ square tin lined with cling film
How to …
- In a mixing bowl, using the end of a rolling pin, crush the biscuits into crumbs. You could use the fill a plastic bag and whack with a wooden spoon method if you want. You could use a food processor but that takes all the fun out of it. Stir in the rice crispies.
- In a large saucepan melt the butter, cocoa and syrup together to make a sauce.
- Pour the chocolate sauce onto the biscuit crumbs and rice crispies and combine thoroughly.
- Tip the chocolaty rubble into the lined tin and press down. Put into the fridge to set.
- Once set melt the chocolate and pour over the biscuit base.
- Scatter over the Halloween sprinkles and the popping candy. There will be a little popping set off by the chocolate but not too much.
- Refrigerate once more until the chocolate is set. Cut into 16 pieces and serve. This is best served from the fridge as it is only the cold that holds it together.
