Tayto Topped Squares

It’s nearly time to grab a bunch of shamrock and paint the town green to celebrate St. Patrick’s day! I’m looking forward to attending the parade in London (and stocking up on Kerry Gold butter and Barry’s Tea at the stalls!) and to mark the occasion I have come up with a super easy no bake recipe featuring Ireland’s favourite snack – Tayto’s!!!

Here is what you need for delicious Tayto Topped Squares:

180g marshmallows

125g Rice Krispies

200g Dark Chocolate

60g butter

150mls Double Cream

3 bags of Tayto Cheese and Onion crisps

I used a 11″ x 9″ baking tray

First grease your baking tray with butter and line the bottom with grease proof or parchment paper. To prepare the bottom layer first melt the marshmallows and 30g of the butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat. When it is all melted start adding the Rice Krispies and mix until well combined. Spoon into the baking tray and spread it evenly – I tore off some extra parchment paper and used it to press down the Rice Krispie mix.
Next make the chocolate layer, begin by breaking up the chocolate and adding to a glass bowl with the remaining 30g of butter. Add the double cream to a pan and bring to a boil over a medium heat. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and whisk until all the chocolate is melted and silky and glossy. If all your chocolate doesn’t melt, pop the glass bowl over a pan with some gently simmering hot water to help melt the chocolate more. Make sure that the bottom of the bowl doesnt touch the water! (Be careful not to get the mixture too hot or it will split and go from being gorgeously glossy to a greasy brown blob in seconds – I speak from experience!!!)
Pour the chocolate ganache over the Rice Krispie layer and spread out evenly. Grab a bag of Taytos and crush them up until you just have small Tayto bits. Sprinkle over the chocolate layer. Cover and pop into the fridge for the chocolate layer to set. Before serving sprinkle regular uncrushed Taytos over the top and cut into 9 squares for the perfect sweet and savoury Irishy treat!

These are so easy to make I really hope you try them out! As always I would love to see some pictures, don’t be shy and use the hashtag #bakemystyle.
