Rice crispy cakes receive the Percy Pig treatment
If you love Percy Pigs, then you're in luck. Because M&S has released a no-bake recipe that elevates these delicious farm yard sweeties to sticky, crispy new heights.
The recipe was posted on the supermarket's Instagram page, where they shared some delicious looking photos of the finished product.
And the best part? No baking needed, making these a super duper easy thing to rustle up. Perfect for if you've got some bored kids that need occupying.
These are essentially a twist on the classic Rice Krispies cakes, but with M&S' original Percy Pig sweets, mini marshmallows and the new Percy Pig Dessert Sauce, which launched in January, thrown in the mix.
"Move over banana bread," the caption reads. "This weekend we’re making Percy Pig Crispy Bars! These bars are so easy to make and only require a few ingredients including our Mini Marshmallows, Percy Pigs and our incredible Percy Pig dessert sauce."
Percy Pig fans have been gushing over the crispy creation on social media, and the post has received thousands of likes and comments.
