It's important to know that what I'm about to show you is in my opinion, the closest thing to heaven in your mouth that you'll ever come across. Mars Bar Slices are something I've been making for years, they're my go to for any bake sale because they're utterly delicious and go down a storm with everyone. Before we get started let me caveat that these are in no way skinny or healthy, but they are good for you... just in a really bad way.
Still keen? Let's get started.
You will need:
- 10 x Mars Bar Snack Size (10 x 36.5g)
- 220g Dairy Milk (or a couple of share bars)
- Rice Crispies (I just buy a packet and save the rest for breakfast)
- 50g Butter
NB: None of the above needs to be accurate.
First up, pop you butter in a saucepan on a low heat and melt a little, then add the Mars Bars. Stir regularly to make sure it doesn't burn and wait for it to melt.
Look at it go...
Once it's all melted (including the nougat), add in the Rice Krispies. This bit is really down to personal preference - pour some in, give it a mix and add some more if you think your Mars to Krispie ratio is a bit off.
Once it's all mixed up pop the mixture into a casserole dish or baking tin. Just to be safe I've lined mine with foil and rubbed some margerine in to stop any sticking. Pat it down as you'll need to save space for the topping - then leave it to cool and put it in the fridge for 30 mins or so to set.
Once it's set you can work on the topping. You can either melt the chocolate the safest way which is in a bain-marie (a glass bowl over boiling water), or if like me you don't have a bowl that would fit in a saucepan, then you can do it in the microwave. However this can be a risky game so make sure you have it in for 10 second intervals and keep stirring. Burnt chocolate just won't do.
Then the best bit, pour that chocolate all over. Mother may I...
Once you've poured the chocolate on, spread it out with a knife so that the whole thing is covered, corners included.
Leave it to set in the fridge until the chocolate is hard, then slice it up and enjoy.
You. Are. Welcome.
