Mars Bar Slice

This slice may just be the easiest slice ever- its basically melted Mars bars and butter, mixed with rice bubbles and topped with chocolate. My great-grandma, who we called Lolly Nan, used to make a Mars Bar slice similar to this. It's really yummy!

You will need:
  • 90g butter
  • 3 x 85g Mars Bars (or 5 x 52g Mars Bars- I used caramel Mars Bars but you can use normal ones)
  • 3 cups Rice Bubbles
  • 200g milk chocolate

Roughly chop the Mars Bars.

Place in a microwave safe bowl with the butter.

Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on medium and then stir.

Pour the Rice Bubbles into the Mars Bar mixture one cup at a time and stir.

Press mixture into a baking paper lined slice tin with the back of a spoon.

Then break the chocolate into squares and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute on medium and stir. You might need to microwave it for an extra 20 seconds if it's not completely melted.

Pour the melted chocolate over the slice and spread evenly. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.

Once chocolate has hardened, remove slice from tin and place on a chopping board. Wait for it to come to room temperature before slicing it.

You can also use a cutter to cut out shapes from the slice.

This one got cracked because it was too cold when I cut it.

Easy and yummy. Enjoy!

Hi! Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. Our internet connection was really slow last week so it would have taken ages to post something.
I thought I would post a couple of things I've made recently. I made this pie a couple of weeks ago. It is like a lemon meringue pie except pineapple. The recipe for the pie is by Perrys' Plate and I used Pioneer Woman's recipe for the pie crust, which actually came from a woman named Sylvia.

It was delicious!

I also made this cake last week using Pioneer Woman's recipe. It was also super yummy.


And in keeping with the fruity theme, I thought I would post this picture of a strawberry pillow I made. Not edible but totally cute :) The instructions come from a book called Sew Pretty Homestyle by Tone Finnanger, which is full of heaps of gorgeous things to sew.

And that's about all for now.
Lots of Love
