Ingredients:
  • 200g Mars Bar, chopped
  • 120g butter – salted or unsalted, 90g step 2, 30g step 5
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • Mini Eggs to suit

Baby sensory toddler sensory

Little M was pretty keen to steal all of the ingredients so we set up a mini sensory pouring and filling station.

We use this chocolate in most of our baking/fridge cakes – great quality, beautiful taste and lovely texture. It retains a lovely glossy shine too. I once used a Galaxy bar when I ran out and that was delicious too, but any milk chocolate will work – I’m just a bit of a chocolate snob.

I particularly like using this spatula as the dual end is great for getting ALL of the chocolate-y goodness! I frequently fight with baking parchment so recently I have gone down this route instead. It’s great for making toasties on the Aga too. Bonus!

Method:
  1. Grease (with additional butter) or line a slice tray.
  2. Combine Mars Bars and butter in a saucepan.
  3. Stir constantly over a low heat, without boiling, until the mixture is smooth. The Mars Bars will never completely melt – they’ll almost get there but they still bit a lumpy and not fully smooth. That’s ok! When they’re basically melted, with just a few lumps here and there, you are good to go. (Tip: I use a whisk at the end).
  4. Stir in the Rice Krispies, then press the mixture evenly into the greased slice tray.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture over rice cereal and mix quickly. It’s a good idea to use a fresh box of Rice Krispies.
  6. Melt the second slab of butter and chocolate. You can do this either using a Bain Marie OR in the microwave. I prefer the over the stove as I can stir it constantly and have a bit more control over the temperature.
  7. Spread the chocolate evening over the Rice Krispie slice mixture in the tray.
  8. Press in the Mini Eggs to decorate.

Now that we’ve made them with mini eggs I’m not sure I can ever go back to marshmallows!

[…] And of course, because it’s Groundhog Day here, we did some more baking; although Little M was more interested in playing with the ingredients in her sensory tray and helping me to tidy up by licking the spoon and bowl at the end. You can find the recipe for our yummy Easy Easter Slice here. […]
