    I love these! Took me right back to my childhood and I’ve now added them to my half term to do list 🙂

    In french they are called “rose des sables” whichou would translate to sand rose.
    Nice recipe, they look fabulous. I never tried with golden syrup. Only melted chocolate and butter on cornflakes. It s so delicious!
