While nothing pleases cakers more than creating copycat recipes of our favourite treats (see Quick and Easy Skor Bars for an example), this recipe, in spite of its name, isn’t for homemade Mars bars. It does, however, involve chocolate bars.
Four of them. Melted. With butter. And Rice Krispies.
Look, if you’re not already onboard, there’s not much else I can do to sell you on these squares. Unless, of course, that final layer of melted milk chocolate chips shoves you over the fence post.
Mark my words: your love affair with Rice Krispies squares is over. There's a new bitch in town.
4 Mars bars
1/3 cup margarine (I used butter)
3 cups Rice Krispies
16 oz package milk chocolate chips
Melt bars and butter in double boiler, then add 3 cups Rice Krispies. Mix and press into an 8x8” pan. Melt chocolate chips in microwave or double boiler and spread over squares. Allow to cool and cut.
