This fuss-free, chocolatey delight is what reminds me of my childhood: a homely, moreish treat to have with a cup of tea in the afternoon. Whenever I visit my nan in the countryside, I beg her to make me some – they seem to taste a lot better when she makes them.
I know they may not look particularly special, but I guarantee you’ll be left wanting more!
– 3-4 oz / 1/3 cup slightly salted butter
– 4 regular sized Mars Bars
– 1 large bar of Galaxy chocolate (or another brand of your choice; milk chocolate works best!)
– Box of rice crispies
1. Cut the Mars Bars into chunks (trying not to eat any as you go along) and place into a bowl.
2. Measure your butter and place in the same bowl as the Mars Bars.
3. Melt the two together and stir until gooey (be sure to check the mix in intermittent periods as chocolate burns so easily)! It doesn’t matter if there are chunks of Mars Bar swimming on top of the mixture.
4. In a large bowl, pour a generous amount of rice crispies and then stir in the Mars Bar mixture. Keep adding as many rice crispies as you want, so long as they’re all covered in chocolate.
5. Using a spatula or spoon, press the rice crispies into a baking tray, then put into the fridge to cool for an hour.
6. Take your bar of Galaxy and melt into a bowl.
7. Pour the Galaxy on top of the rice crispies and set in the fridge once more for an hour.
8. Slice up and serve!
