This cake is a fun twist on childhood treat, chocolate rice crispy cake. Best suited for a party of 40+ people, served as a pudding or afternoon tea. The bulk ingredients for this monster sized cake are cheap, preparation is easy, little margin for error, easy to transport. A truly scrumptious crowd pleaser.
A tray works well as the handles are helpful when moving the cake around - it's pretty heavy once finished!

If using popping candy, be aware that it pops prematurely when combined with heat or liquid. First set the candy in cooking chocolate, chop up and mix in, once the mixture is off the heat / just before you start to roll out the balls.
