This is a favourite recipe of my other half from his childhood, probably the first recipe he shared with me rather than vice versa. The whole family love this. I always make two types, one without chocolate on the top and one with. But if you only wish to make one type, the one without chocolate on top is certainly far easier to cut into pieces.
Ingredients (makes 24)
3 standard size mars bars
2 tbsp golden syrup
approx 225g rice krispies
200g milk chocolate
Line two 20cm square tins or dishes with cling film.
Chop the mars bars into small pieces.
Put the mars bars, syrup and margarine in a pan.
Slowly heat until it is melted, stirring occasionally.
Stir in as many rice krispies as the mixture will coat.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tins.
Press into the corners and flatten with back of spoon.
Put into refrigerator to set.
Break chocolate into small pieces and put in a glass basin.
Heat a pan of water and turn down to a gentle simmer.
Put the basin in the pan, taking care not to let any water spill into the basin.
Melt the chocolate over the hot water.
Pour the melted chocolate over one of the mars bar cakes.
Return to the refrigerator.
Once fully set, cut each mars bar cake into 12 pieces.
Arrange in an alternating design on a serving plate.
Serve and enjoy.

Mmmm this looks really tasty! And its so easy to make,think I may give it a go! 🙂
yes easy and very yummy
Oooh this looks amazing! I’s almost one I’d have to make in secret and eat in secret too!
Great idea, especially as the recipe makes 2, how about one for the chef and one for everyone else
Yum! I remember this from my childhood….I had totally forgotten about it! I think I will have to make it again x
yes this is very popular here, so mars bars are often on the shopping list
These would be perfect for packed lunch boxes, will have to give them a try
They do tend to get a bit sticky when they have been out of the fridge for a while, so watch out for sticky fingers if you do put them in a packed lunch
Wow, so easy yet so tasty looking. I think these would make great Easter gifts for my family with a few mini eggs placed on top. Thanks for sharing.
