Salted Chocolate Crispies

'Mylo Xyloto' by Coldplay

So very far from paradise this morning. To block out everything on the bus I put my headphones on and did what's best on public transport - people watch, and kept the volume at a reasonable level.

I was unfortunate to witness two people snacking on a Mars bar and a packet of ready salted crisps at 10am. Exactly. There is a time and place for this sort of snack-age behaviour, munching with your mouth open on the 253 to Finsbury Park at this time is not cool. Obviously this created a small spark in the sweet brain cell and I started to note down sweet and salty combinations, a nibble which didn't require baking. As soon as I passed a shop I bought loads of crisps and a bar of dark chocolate, together they were going to make the classic version of Rice Krispie cakes crumble with fear in a dark corner. I'm not going to lie to you and say this is better than what I witnessed this morning, in spite of that occurrence these Crispies are pretty amazing and you should give them a go or spread the word, I'm a big fan of Flipz and the salty and sweet marriage.

Recipe for 12 bite size chunks:

2 bags of ready salted crisps (each 32.5g), I suggest non crinkled because you will need to smash them into smaller pieces. OR if you're feeling a bit funky mix it up with chilli crisps!

150g dark chocolate


: Melt chocolate in a bowl over boiling water, or microwave. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
: Squeeze and scrunch crisp bags, then empty in a bowl.
: Pour over the chocolate and stir well.
: Either in cupcake cases or on greaseproof paper spoon about a dessertspoon out  and leave out to cool for about an hour. 

Once hard remove from paper or leave in cases to serve. 
Easy, quick and an indulgent snack (definitely not to be eaten at 10am!)
