Not Just for Kids – Mars Bar Cakes

Today I’m going to share with you a special secret treat of mine. It’s an occassional guilty pleasure, that makes my mouth water and bring me back to being a kid. Today, I’m going to explain to you the joy of Mars Bar Cakes – a more mature Krispie Cake if you like. They are so simple to make, take no time, no cooking (only a little melting) and can be made with all store cupboard ingredients. My kind of baking.

To make, all you need is:

  • 6 x 50g Mars Bars (thats the size of our standard Mars here, but don’t worry. Exact measurements aren’t critical. Approximate)
  • 150g of butter
  • 150g of Rice Krispies (a little more if you want to make it last, a little less if you want a more luxurious Krispie Cake)
  • 200g of milk/dark chocolate
To assemble:
  1. Melt you Mars Bars and butted in a bain marie (be patient, the mars takes a while to melt)
  2. Take your butter/Mars mix off the heat and pour in your Rice Krispies. Try to fold them in so that you don’t crush them too much.
  3. When fully mixed, pour into a greased baking tin and press out to flatten it.
  4. Melt your milk/dark chocolate and pour evenly over the top of your flattened Krispies. Leave to cool and set. Then pop out of you tin and cut them into squares.

And that is just it. They are absolutely scrumptious! You must try them.
