    Used different ingredients. I swapped the crisped rice for a chocolate variety and added chopped dried apricots and glace cherries. The kids loved it and my husband couldn't resist either!  -  22 Mar 2010


    Something else. I shaped them into circles and then dipped them in milk chocolate then drizzled white chocolate over that when it had set. Looked very professional and sold for 50p at the school fair. Perfect!  -  31 May 2011
