A Childhood Favourite
This is a simple recipe, a tray bake if you like. It is one my mum would make regularly when I was a child. Once I was old enough I was allowed to help and that meant I loved it even more. My mum calls it Mars Bar Block. You know it is going to be good now, don't you?
Mars Bar Block
3 mars bars
3 tbsp golden syrup
1 cup sultanas or raisins
2 cups rice krispies
300g/48 squares milk chocolate (approx)
Slice the mars bars into a small pan, add the syrup and melt over a gentle heat.
Pour the hot chocolate sauce into a large bowl and add the rice krispies and sultanas. Mix until the rice crispies are well coated with the chocolate mix and the sultanas are well distributed.
Pour into a brownie pan and spread out.
Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.
Spread the chocolate over the rice krispie base and leave in the fridge to cool and set, then cut into slices. My mum recommends marking out the squares before the mix is quite set, making it easier to cut.
I am entering this recipe into this month's Sugar High Fridays, which is being hosted this month by Susan, The Well Seasoned Cook.
This month's theme is Bar Cookies. Whether they are one-bowl brownies, butterscotch-y blondies, or elaborately layered creations of textures and tastes.
