Game of Scones
These ‘severed Neds’ are best eaten with ‘the hand’ – be sure to consume them quickly, as they won’t last as long as you’d hope

  • Step 1

    Melt 350g of the milk chocolate very gently in a bowl over hot water, stirring
    occasionally until just melted. Add the cake crumbs to the melted chocolate and
    stir well until mixed. Press into a cake pop mould (or shape with your hands).
    Freeze for 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Shape a large ‘Ned’ with your hands. Place the large head on a small piece
    of non-stick baking paper and freeze.

  • Step 3

    To coat with chocolate: melt the remaining chocolate as before, then add a tiny
    amount of pink or paprika food colour to make a flesh colour.

  • Step 4

    Unmould the cake pop heads. Insert a wooden skewer or cake pop stick into
    each head and dip the cold heads in the chocolate, rolling them around to coat,
    and place them back in the freezer for a few moments to firm up. Coat ‘Ned’ in
    the same way.

  • Step 5

    Add cola lace hair and eyebrows to Ned, sticking with a little melted chocolate.
    Using edible glue, add a chocolate sprinkle beard and moustache. Add black
    writing icing eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Step 6

    Paint features on the small heads with black food colour. Add melted milk
    chocolate hair, beards and moustaches. Add red blood with food colour.

  • Step 7

    Keep the heads in a cool place while you make the ‘wall’.

  • Step 8

    Crush the rice crispies in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. Melt the butter in a
    saucepan over low heat and stir in 300g of the Marshmallow Fluff. Stir well
    until completely melted. Add the crushed cereal and stir well. Press into a
    small greased baking tray and allow to cool.

  • Step 9

    Cut bricks out of the cold mixture. Assemble some of the bricks into a round
    turret with the remaining Marshmallow Fluff. Fill the centre with the remaining
    cereal bricks, pressing them down as necessary to make a firm base. Push the
    heads into the base and add chocolate sprinkles to cover the centre.

  • Step 10

    Grab a knife and prepare to serve – and remember: ‘He who passes the
    sentence should swing the knife’.
