Mars Bar Slice

~Imagine some poor, harassed mother going to her cupboard to feed the starving hordes home from school, only to be confronted with nothing to give them. Tendrils of hair stick to her damp brow as she stands there staring at the shelves. Drawing on a little imagination and a huge amount of desperation she throws a few ingredients together and voila!

Mars Bar Slice


4 x 53g Mars bars, roughly chopped

60g butter

3 cups rice bubbles (Don't be tempted to add more, this will only make the mix crumbly)

150g dark chocolate, chopped

20g butter, additional


Place the butter and Mars Bars in a small saucepan. Heat gently over heat until melted.

Place Rice Bubbles in a large mixing bowl.

Add melted Mars Bars.

Mix well and press evenly into a greased pan.

Refrigerate until nice and firm.

Melt remaining chocolate and butter. I like to do this in the microwave in short bursts, others prefer over simmering water on the stove.

Pour chocolate over chilled slice.

Refrigerate. Slice when cold.

Oh Yeah!

This doesn't last long in my house, the guys love it. Make sure you store it in the refrigerator otherwise it will melt. I've also known people who make it with Corn Flakes but I prefer Rice Bubbles.

Yum - Mars Bar slice - just as delicious as a Tim Tam Slammer!

Just wanted to let you know I finally got into the groove with Nano. Yesterday and today I reached my word goal. And what did I learn? That perhaps my story might go in a different direction than what I thought. That the time I spent writing 1660 words today, which I may never use in the end, is very useful because I have gained a better understanding of my characters and feel for what they're about.

Thanks for the pep talk the other day. It was very helpful! You're a star :)
