DIRECTIONS

  • You will also need: brown thread (for non-edible whiskers- optional) and 4 toffee apple sticks.
  • Break the Marzipan into 4 equal pieces and shape into rats.
  • Trim the bootlace to size and insert appropriately for tails.
  • Coat the bodies with a thin layer of toffee spread and roll them in the chocolate sprinkles to give the effect of fur.
  • Use a small blob of icing for the eyes.
  • If doing whiskers cut a few 5 cm lengths of thread and 'sew' them through the nose.
  • Gently push a stick up each-- er, rat, making sure it is secure.
  • It's all a bit dreadful, isn't it?.
  • Bust still much better than using a real rat.
  • In a heavy bottoms pan dissolve the sugar in the water and cook over a medium heat until it's golden brown (warning this gets very hot so be careful!).
  • When it's ready turn off the heat and quickly coat each rat in it- do NOT use a pastry brush as it will melt!
  • Place the rats in a cool dry place to set.
