Mars Bar 'Treasure' Slice

Some of my fondest childhood memories involve cooking with my mum. I remember having so much fun being able to create something delicious for everyone to eat (and of course getting to lick the bowl at the end)! I find it really sad that there are people out there that missed out on this experience as a child :(

There are so many child-friendly recipes out there that are quick, easy and delicious! The king of kids recipes has got to be Mars Bar Slice. Next to chocolate crackles and honey joys, it is the greatest cereal-based recipe around. I re-discovered my inner child whilst planning this recipe and decided it needed more FUN. So I added peanut MnM's and marshmallows, aka 'Treasure'! Upon reflection, the marshmallows were probably excessive, they started to melt when the melted mars bars were added and  just made the whole slice extra sticky and gooey.

No denying it, this slice is wicked rich, but for the effort-to-result ratio it's definitely a winner. Not really a last minute recipe though, unless you store mass amounts of mars bars and MnM's in your pantry, you'll have to head to the shop for ingredients.

Mars Bar 'Treasure' Slice

What you will need

12 fun size mars bars, chopped roughly
50g butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
3 cups Rice Bubbles
1 cup Peanut MnM's
1 cup marshmallows, chopped roughly

What you will need to do

Line a slice tin with baking paper. Place Rice Bubbles, MnM's and marshmallows in a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a small saucepan over low heat melt mars bars, butter and golden syrup. Stir until everything is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture into bowl with Rice Bubbles and stir until combined. Pour mixture into prepared tin and spread evenly. Press down with the back of a spoon to compress. Place into fridge for at least an hour to set.
