To make the base

Step 3- Place the rice crispies into a heatproof bowl and pour in the melted chocolate, stir until fully combined.

Step 4- Pour and level the mixture into the lined tin then pop into the freezer to set.

To make the filling

Step 1- In a bowl using a balloon whisk, whisk the coconut cream until light and fluffy.
