  • – 100g milk chocolate, broken up  
  • – 50g dark chocolate, broken up 
  • – 4 tbsp golden syrup 
  • – 50g toppings of your choice  


  1. 1. Melt the chocolate, butter, and golden syrup together in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water (without letting the bowl touch the water) or in the microwave using 10-second bursts. Stir until smooth. 
  1. 2. Remove from the heat and stir in the rice pops, making sure they’re completely coated with the chocolate mixture. 
  1. 3. Divide the mixture between 9 cupcake cases or 12 fairy cake cases placed in a muffin tin. Leave to set for at least an hour, or in the fridge to set faster. 
  1. 4. Once set, drizzle with melted chocolate, and decorate with your chosen toppings while the chocolate is still runny. 

When it comes to adding toppings to your rice pop cakes, the sky’s the limit. Try adding mini marshmallows, chocolate buttons, or even chopped nuts for a tasty crunch. Just let your imagination soar.
