Mars Bar and Rice Krispies cake bites: just 5 basic ingredients make this easy, sweet treat!
After last week’s brownies, this week I was looking for another tray bake, although what I’ve found doesn’t actually require any baking.
These Mars Bar and Rice Krispies cake bites are quick and simple to make. As there’s no oven involved and you can do all the melting using a microwave, they’re also a good option if you want to “bake” with the help of little people. I got the original recipe here at GoodtoKnow. I made a couple of small changes, mostly to the decorative final layer.
A note on Mars Bars and Rice Krispies
If you can only get your hands on the original brands, that’s fine. But most supermarkets do their own, far cheaper versions of both these ingredients. I used Tesco’s own version of Mars Bars (any bar containing nougat and caramel coated in milk chocolate will be fine) and Rice Krispies because they were half the price of the original brands (see pics below).
