December is here! And to celebrate we’ve got some yummy Crispy cakes to make! A classic family favourite that we’ve given a winter twist by turning them into leaves! Plus we’ve popped ours onto wooden skewers so they have doubled up as a portable lolly to take-in be taken with you on a winters walk. Here’s how to make yours:
110g chocolate broken into squares
50g unsalted butter, cubed
50g Golden Syrup
75g breakfast cereal (we used hoops and rice pops)
Add the chocolate, butter and Lyle's Golden Syrup to a heatproof bowl and set it over a pan of simmering water for about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and then gently stir in the cereal until completely covered in chocolate.
Scoop the mixture into a lined baking tray then chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Once set, carefully transfer to a clean surface, then carefully cut leaf shapes out of it. You should be able to get at least 4 Crispy Cake leafs out of the mixture.
To make ours extra “leaf” like we used black icing to create the veins in the leaves.
For more leaf shape inspiration check out our blog post’s from last week’s thanksgiving crafts where we have free leaf templates. Plus our super popular Forest Trail Toy comes with it’s own Leaf Hunt card with lots of inspiration too and a toy you can take on a winters walk! Check it out here
