Mars Bar Slice

Okay, eating six pieces in a row may have been a mistake... and so my loyal readers can make themselves sick too, here's the recipe:

3 cups Rice Bubbles (Rice Krispies, if you're in America)
3 x 53g Mars Bars (ie, the regular size, not the king size)
75g butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
200g good quality milk or dark chocolate

Melt Mars Bars, butter and golden syrup together and mix until smooth. (Note: the nougat bit of the Mars Bar doesn't fully melt but stir vigorously to get rid of any lumps.)
Stir in Rice Bubbles until fully combined
Press mixture firmly into foil-lined and greased 20cm square cake tin or shallow slice tray. (Note: it's very important to line the tray with foil AND grease the foil... no foil, and the slice stays in the tin forever. Foil but no grease, and you'll be picking bits of foil off the bottom of the slice for the next two hours. Seriously. Trust me.)
Place slice in fridge until firm.
Place chocolate pieces in heat proof bowl, melt in microwave and stir until smooth.
Spread melted chocolate over slice and refrigerate until firm.
Remove slice from fridge about 1 hour before cutting into squares with a warm knife. (Note: It's easier to cut if you turn it upsidedown on a cutting board so you're cutting into the rice bubbles, not into solid chocolate.)

Why did you have to do this?

Oops - sorry! You don't have time to make it, anyway... you're too busy making a rocking horse.

I don't know why my blog isn't loading properly at the moment but it's starting to bug me...

HI, thanks for the memory, I remember someone making this many years back & thinking I should get the recipe and today I stumble across it in blogland! Must be a chocolate day, I will creep out of my freezer house and go buy the ingredients.
