Ramadan Mubarak everyone. We hope you and your families are keeping well.
Ramadan is very different for us all this year. It’s usually a time for family gatherings, sharing food and praying together but COVID-19 has got us all hibernating at home. Oh no!
Needless to say, there’s one thing that never changes and that is the variety of dishes, cakes, breads on the table every evening to break or start our fast with.
I will be sharing quick and easy recipes here and there for you all to try. I know there are PLENTY of recipes going round at the moment. You’re all at home and baking away but I hope some of you will try some of my simple and tasty recipes .
So, stay at home, stay safe and save lives.
Let’s get started!
These crispy cakes are gooey, crunchy, marshmallow, chocolate pieces of heaven. They’re simple, easy and quick to make. These bite size nibbles are the delicious sweet treat you need right after breaking your fast.
150g rice crispies
100g unsalted butter
100g marshmallows ( I use the vegetarian/halal ones)
100g milk chocolate, chopped into small pieces
250g of your favourite chocolate that can be melted
1. Grease and line a 21cm square tin with nonstick baking paper. (A larger tin can be used, they will just be smaller in size)
2. In a large pan, melt the butter, marshmallows and 100g of milk chocolate over a low heat, until the mixture is fully melted and combined. Stir in the rice crispies and mix until they are all coated
3. Turn out into the the lined tin and using the back of a spoon, smooth the top to make it flat. Melt the remainder chocolate (I used Cadbury’s Whole Nut) in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring, until completely melted and smooth
4. Pour the melted chocolate over the rice crispies and spread evenly. I sprinkled some chopped walnuts and whole pieces of chocolate on top to give it some extra crunch but that is completely optional. Leave to set. Once set, cut into even squares and serve.
