Method

1

Place the milk chocolate in a bowl over a small simmering saucepan of water and allow to melt gently. In another saucepan, over a gentle heat, melt together the peanut butter, sugar, and golden syrup until runny and smooth.

2

In a large mixing bowl, toss the Special K flakes and coconut until combined. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the dry ingredients and using a wooden spoon stir until everything is nicely combined.

3

Turn the mixture out into a 2 inch deep baking dish and spread out evenly pressing down with the back of the spoon.

4

Pour over the melted chocolate and place in the fridge to allow the chocolate to chill & harden, but take out before the chocolate is completely firm to allow wedging in the marshmallow topping.

5

Meanwhile, using a black edible food art pen, draw on eyes & a mouth onto the marshmallows.

6

Once the chocolate has chilled, push the marshmallow ghosts slightly into the mixture and drizzle over the white chocolate, to create a web-like effect.

7

Once the white chocolate has cooled, slice & serve into small bites!
