I recently learnt how to melt chocolate on the stove top. I know what you may be thinking .. like it’s really not that hard, but for some reason I always burnt or split the chocolate, up until recently.
So celebrating my recently achievement, I decided to make a few recipes using melted chocolate. Keep posted for the other one, but for now, I’m going to share my favourite which is Mars Bar Slice.
- 3 cups Rice Bubbles
- 4 x 53g Mars Bars
- 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
- 50g Butter
- 250g Chocolate Buttons
- Grease 9 x 15″ tray, or line with baking paper. You can change the dimensions of the tray if you’d like, depending on how thick you want the slice.
- Melt 3 and a half Mars Bars, butter, and golden syrup together in a bowl, using whatever method of melting chocolate you like. I personally use the double boiler method, with a glass bowl on top.
- Once melted (the nougat in the Mars Bar won’t really melt all that much), combine Rice Bubbles and remaining half of Mars Bar in same bowl until well combined.
- Working quickly, spread Rice Bubble mixture into prepared pan, making it as thick or as thin as you’d like. Try to make the mixture flat, so your step 6 is even.
- Pop pan into fridge until Step 6 is completed.
- Melt 250g Chocolate Buttons in a bowl (I use the same one as the mixture was in to eliminate dishes), and once melted, spread evenly over your Rice Bubble mixture and place in fridge to set for 10-15 mins.
- Cut up into whatever size slice you’d like, and voila!
I personally think the thinner the slice the better, because this honestly gets demolished in our household, and being able to cut up more pieces means it lasts a bit longer for us. This goes down a treat for any dinner or tea party where you need to bring something. It’s pretty cheap to make, especially if the Mars Bars are on special and you don’t buy name brand Rice Bubbles.
There’s a few different recipes out there with a couple more ingredients, but this one has worked well for me so far .. Get crackin’ and enjoy!
