Mars Bar Rice Krispie Squares

While looking for a quick fix for a friend's birthday a few years ago I was put onto the idea of a jazzed up version of rice krispie squares by a friend of mine. She recommended adding marshmallows and golden syrup and they worked out really well!!! (I'll include the variations at the end of this recipe)

I came up with this mars bar variation for an event in college last year and they went down an absolute treat so I usually make them for birthday parties where a cake or something more fragile would be impossible to transport or wouldn't keep well in the open :) And let's face it, who doesn't like sticky, chewy, crispy, chocolatey treats?

The recipe is a bit on the approximate side because it really is improvised to the max but I'll make sure to describe what you should be seeing in your bowl :) You'll have to do this in 3 batches if you want to make the full amount of squares.

Mars Bar Rice Krispie Squares

(Makes approx. 30 smallish squares)
  • 20 snacksize Mars bars
  • 3 tbsp Golden syrup
  • 3 tsps butter
  • 250-300g Rice Krispies

Melt 1/3 of the Mars Bars over a bain marie until sticky (it will still be quite firm though)
Add 1 tbsp of the Golden Syrup and mix in well
Add 1 tsp of the butter, let it melt and mix well (it should be quite malleable and loose at this stage but still sticky)
Add 1/3 of the Rice Krispies and mix until they are coated in the mars bar mixture (they won't get completely 
coated but that's how it works)
You can add more if you feel there aren't enough Rice Krispies in the mix
Either roll into balls using 1 tbsp of the mix or pour out onto a tray lined with greaseproof paper

Repeat the above with the remaining Mars Bars and add to the same tray.
Refrigerate until hard then remove, cut into squares and enjoy!

If you want you can substitute the Mars bars for 150g of mini Marshmallows, or add both (SINFULLY yummy!)
