Combining two of our favourite things, Marks & Spencer has revealed how you can make Percy Pig crispy bars at home – and they'll make the perfect lockdown treat.

Posting on their Instagram account, the brand teased: "Move over banana bread … this weekend we’re making Percy Pig Crispy Bars!"

And the best part is, the recipe – which was developed with food blogger Plates of Tate – couldn't be simpler.

If you fancy making it at home, all you'll need is a 40g knob of butter, 250g of mini marshmallows, 100g of Rice Krispies (or any rice pop cereal), M&S' Percy Pig strawberry desert sauce and a bag of Percy Pigs.

Start by lining a square tin with baking parchment then melt the butter over a low heat in a saucepan.

Once it's fully melted, add 150g of marshmallows and your strawberry sauce.

After they've mixed together, add your cereal and chopped up Percy Pigs and stir.

Then pop the mixture into your pre-prepared tin and decorate with the remaining marshmallows and chill for at least four hours in the fridge.

Needless to say, the simple recipe has proved popular with sweet-toothed Percy Pig fans.

One follower commented: "Wowza!!"

"We need to make these," another added.

"Love these," a third wrote. "Will be a great food tech lesson for my little boy."
