Kevin's kitchen Halloween baking ideas: Chocolate Rice Krispie rocky road squares
We always look forward to Halloween in the Dundon household- the schools are on mid-term break and it's a great chance for all the family to catch up with each other and get busy in the kitchen!
This year, celebrating will be a bit different. There'll be no trick or treating or party games, such as bobbing apples, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the occasion - we just need to be more careful.
In our house, we will have a movie night with our delicious decorated cookies and brownies, and we will create a Halloween scavenger hunt in the house and garden, using torches to seek out the hidden treasures. We will also be carving pumpkins - imaginations can run wild with decorations. To make sure you've a good selection of sweets and biscuits to choose from, here is a ghoulish goodie for you to whip up in the kitchen for your little monsters.
- 50g butter, softened. 150g milk chocolate, broken into chunks 3 tbsp honey 50g rice Krispies
- 50g white chocolate drops
- 30g marshmallows
- 100g dark chocolate
- 1 pack Oreos
- 2 hand full of your favourite sweets (including large marshmallow…)
- Line a 6inch round cake tin with a triple layer of cling film or baking parchment
- Over a pan of simmering water, melt in a bowl the butter, chocolate and honey.
- Remove from the heat and add the rice krispies, marshmallow, white chocolate drops and stir to coat into the chocolate mixture.
- Transfer in the tin and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to set.
- Once cooled and set, remove from the cling film. Place on a serving platter.
- In a bowl over simmering water, melt the dark chocolate.
- Once melted, dip the Oreos in the chocolate and stick all around the cake. Drizzle the leftover chocolate over the top and stick your family’s favourite sweets.
- If desired, blow torch the marshmallow for extra colour!
