cheerio slice recipe

we had a lovely day out at the coast yesterday (photos will follow when I've charged the camera........) but in between fossilling, crab catching, rock scrambling, wave dodging, getting rained on, and going to the pub, the children were fortified by cheerio slices.

melt 4oz toffees, 4oz butter and 4oz marshmallows. we did it in the microwave and it was VERY exciting to watch the marshmallows to evolve into molten goo!

then stir in 7oz cheerios, and spread out in a shallow cake tin (the sort you'd make brownies in) lined with greaseproof paper.

then melt 4oz of milk chocolate, and in a seperate bowl 4oz of white chocolate. carefully place - ok splodge with great glee the two types of chocolate onto the cheerios, and swirl about to make pretty patterns.

let it set, turn out, and cut into wedges. enjoy. get sticky. feel slightly queasy. and have another bit...........
