My kids like this served with a chocolate sauce, which is so simple to make (see below..)
Valentine Chocolate Crispy Heart.
You will need :
100g plain or milk chocolate (I used a mixture of both)
40g butter or margarine
40g Golden Syrup
Simple Chocolate Sauce
Pack of instant custard Powder
60g plain chocolate - broken into small pieces
First you will need to make a template for your cake - I lined a 30cm round tray with a sheet of greaseproof & drew a heart - if you don't feel confident drawing a freehand heart you can find templates here which can be enlarged, then turn the paper over so that the lines are on the underside of the paper.
Melt the chocolate, butter & syrup in a pan over a low heat, until smooth.
tip : I weigh the ingredients directly into the saucepan to save on washing up!
Pour the cornflakes into a large mixing bowl and add the melted chocolate mixture.
|This part took a while !!|
Spread over the greaseproof paper template, trying to keep within the shape as much as possible.
tip: Whilst you are concentrating on forming your perfect heart let your toddler lick the bowl out!
|The best bit !!|
Refrigerate for around 30 minutes until set.
|Remind me to buy him a non pink apron !|
Make up the custard as per directions on the pack.
Stir in the chocolate until melted
Serve a slice of crispy cake with warm sauce poured over the top.
|and for the sole purpose of testing, I ate this seconds|
