Some great party treats.


  • 150 g digestive biscuits, roughly bashed so you have nice chunks
  • 200 g mini marshmallows, or large ones chopped up
  • 4 crunchie bars, chopped into chunks
  • 250 g chocolate (milk or dark)
  • 3 tblsp butter


  • In a large bowl combine the digestive biscuits, marshmallows and Crunchie bar chunks and set aside.
  • Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and sit over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted. You can also do this in the microwave - just keep your eye on it and don’t forget to stir halfway through.
  • You ideally want the chocolate to be glossy and smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate and butter over the biscuits, marshmallows and Crunchie chunks and, using a wooden spoon, stir until everything is nicely coated.
  • Place heaped spoonfuls into paper cases and place in the fridge to firm up for about 30 minutes.
  • You can also turn the mixture out on to a baking tray and spread it evenly, then slice them up into squares when they are set. But the paper cases are far less trouble - with no washing up!
