STILL no kitchen!! I have but a microwave and a fridge to my name, and most of this recipe was done in one little bowl in my bedroom because there were strange men downstairs hammering things and being super manly. Picture me sitting on my bed trying desperately to not spill any melted chocolate on my blanket. It’s not too bad, at least I have the microwave and fridge, but it makes cooking bloggable things a little harder. I’ve also eaten a hellava lot of junk food recently. Oops.
So anyway, I’ve been trying to find recipes that don’t require an oven, hence my microwave quesadilla last week, and browsing Oh She Glows I found this no bake recipe, that I’ve adapted a little. I have to say, I’m enjoying my “Cooking without a Kitchen” series, but I am eating too much takeaway pizza, so if anyone has any recommendations for healthy microwave food I’d love to hear them!
I did go round to my friend’s house and bake the other day, we had tea and cake and it was well cute. Pictures down below, if you want recipes ask away in the comments but neither of them are vegan, just to let you know :)
300g of peanut butter (I used crunchy)
3 or 4 tablespoons of maple or golden syrup
2 tablespoons of plain flour
A pinch of salt
6 tablespoons of Rice Krispies or Coco Pops (I used Coco Pops obviously)
Around 200g of dark chocolate – or you could use a mixture of flavours?
- Stir the jar of peanut butter well before using. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter and golden syrup until quite thick.
- Stir in the flour until quite thick and sticky-ish. Add the salt and cereal and shape into balls. Put in the fridge whilst you do the next steps.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave or on the hob.
- With a fork, dip the balls into the melted chocolate until covered; save some chocolate for drizzling. I only dipped half in chocolate as I wanted to see how the balls taste with and without, they both taste lovely so just do as you please!
- Place balls in the fridge for 20 minutes until firmed up. Drizzle over more chocolate and put in the fridge again until they’re completely set.
Makes about 15 balls
