How to: Make Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Cakes!

With lots of leftover cereal in my house, I decided to make some use of it and make some yummy chocolate marshmallow crispy cakes!
Here's a basic recipe and tips on how to make them...

Ingredients (to make 6 big cakes):
-One whole milk cooking chocolate bar
-A small bowl of mini marshmallows
-1 1/2 small bowls of leftover cereal 
-6 muffin cases

{1} Place a small sized saucepan, half full of water, on a hob at a medium heat. Break the chocolate bar into a suitable bowl for heat e.g. glass or pottery.

{2} Place the bowl with the chocolate on top of the saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

{3} Take the saucepan off the heat and remove the bowl off the top. The key at this stage is to move quickly or the chocolate will cool and become solid. Add the old cereal to the chocolate starting with one of the small bowls. Stir in the chocolate. If there is still chocolate not mixed, continue to add cereal until it is all blended in. Finally, stir in the some of the marshmallows.

{4} Spoon the chocolate, cereal and marshmallow mix into the muffin cases using a tablespoon until all the mixture is used up and the cakes are all equal. Place a small marshmallow on top of each cake.

{5} Finally, place the cakes into the fridge to chill for a couple of minutes until the cakes have firmed up.

{6} Take them out and enjoy when the chocolate is no longer shinny.
