Popcorn Cake Bars

You can easily turn your chocolate popcorn cakes into cake bars.

To do this just line a tin with greaseproof paper and tip the popcorn cake batter into the tin.

Then flatten down with the back of a spoon and sprinkle over the coloured confetti sprinkles.

All you need to do then is to leave them to set in the fridge for a couple of hours before slicing into cake bars.
