Mars Bar Crispy Cakes - How do YOU make them?

I think I've been doing it wrong for years.

I melt marshmallows to mix with the rice crispies, flatten into tin then top with melted mars bars mixed with a little milk, leave to set.

I always thought the marshmallow bit was a pita, really sticky and difficult to flatten down without it all sticking to anything with a metre radius and then recently I have heard that I'm supposed to just mix the melted mars bars with the crispies and poor melted chocolate on top.

Which method do you use, fancy making some this weekend.

Melt mars bars and a few marshmallows (depending on how chewy you want them, mix crispies in, done. I don't bother with pouring any choc on top.

I need these, I need these!

I dont bothewr with marshmallows.

When I was a teenager I tried making them with brandy. It wasnt very nice.

Brandy? No I imagine it wasn't. I add marshmallows because I am a greedy cow.

Like the idea of golden syrup, not convinced about the brandy but might mean I don't have to share with the children.

Oh, and I still haven't made them because I went to sainsburys and forgot the mars bars hmm.

Needing these. Now.

In my defense I was 14. I liked to experiment. Vodka on coco pops was slightly more successful.

Toffee Crispies

90g butter
155g sugar
1 tin (397g) condensed milk
15ml (1 tbsp) golden syrup
Vanilla essence
60g rice crispies

Melt the butter and sugar together
Add the condensed milk and syrup and bring slowly to the boil
Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring continuously
When mixture reaches the soft-ball stage, remove from the heat and add the vanilla and rice crispies

I found this recipe recently and they are amazing! I pour melted dark chocolate over the top then, when it's set, I pour melted milk chocolate over that.

I am on a healthy eating regime for a month (only 4 days in) and am now desperately craving these but I know if I made them I would eat the lot blush

Melt as any mars bars as you like with the same amount of cups of rice cripies. Pour into tin, leave to cool, shovel down throat before anyone counts how many you made , enjoy one small one with a cuppa and let your family enjoy them......grin

Cash made your Grans recipe and it was lovely, although I did add a tablespoon of golden syrup so it didn't go too hard - tasted just like the inside of a toffee crisp (yum yum)

Glad it worked for you Brickle I think they get better after a couple of days as they soften slightly (I usually make a double batch though....) Will try adding golden syrup too (g

olden syrup can only make them better!)

for each mars bar you want an ounce of everything else butter, syrup, krispies.

Simples! :D AND I put chocolate raisins into mine....but you do have to not let the melted stuff get too hot, or all the chocolate melts off the raisins. :D

100g of each of the following:
Mars bars (or dairy milk caramel)
Rice crispies

Melt everything together then stir in the rice crispies - perfect!!

Mars bars, butter, golden syrup, cornflakes for the absolute best ones.

Why marshmallows? I agree with OuiOui - mars bars, butter, golden syrup, and cornflakes.

I've never used marshmallows in mine, may try it though. Have also made two birthday cakes using my recipe - once I did a giant fish and last year a cat, just mould into the shape you want and stick candles on it. Kids love it.
