Holidays approaching

I've been off work for the past week now and other than submitting my Photography assignment haven't made much progress with the whole blogging/ updating my website intentions that I had. My head is in Vegas mode and we fly out on Wednesday morning. I hope to take some great shots and have the best of intentions to research website design, and do more blogging on my return. In the meantime, thought I'd post some favourite sweet treats which me and my sister used to enjoy at birthday parties. One is never enough and the addition of the syrup and toffees to the well known rice krispie treats makes these extra yummy!

Rice Krispie treats

  • 200g toffees (individual sweets or a slab)
  • 125g butter or margarine
  • 200g marshmallows
  • 200g Kellogg's Rice Krispies
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup or to taste
All measures are approx; feel free to throw in extra toffees and syrup according to taste!
Over a low heat, in a large pan (an old pan will do) melt together first the marshmallows, toffees and butter. Then add the syrup and stir slowly until mixture is completely melted (keep heat very low or mixture will burn).
When mixture is melted remove from heat, chuck in rice krispies and stir to coat them completely to make quite a firm mix.
Spread out on a large flat tray and mark out squares using a sharp knife once mixture has set slightly. Allow to set fully about 1 hour before removing from tray.

Cut up and enjoy!
