I had an extra packet of fried noodles leftover from Mr 5 year olds Lion Cake, so Mr 4 year old and I got creative. He decided these three could go to his teacher so we popped them in a bag and delivered them to him at school.

These are a favourite for many. These always remind me of my childhood. I was always so excited when we got these as a treat in the lunchbox.

We made simple chocolate ones (with a little melted chocolate for eyes) but you can add a variety of flavours to them:

  • Peanut butter
  • Slithered or flaked almonds
  • Shredded coconut
  • Liquors for the adults
  • Sultanas
  • Pepitas, sunflower and chia seeds
  • Use white cholate instead

If you want to make these without a tmx or similar simply melt your chocolate in a microwave safe container, add noodles and mix.
