If you've got an electric whisk - either a hand one or a freestanding mixer - this is very low effort indeed, but it is a real showstopper. There's something quite extraordinary about the greedy silence that falls over the table as you put these out.
The glitz is provided by their utter fantabulousness and the scattering of honeycomb over the top. If you don't want to use a Crunchie bar, of course buy some honeycomb or make Hokey Pokey, or else scatter with finely chopped pistachios. You will lose the sugary-glitter look, but you will still have brought to life an elegantly voluptuous creation.
