Or what to do when you have had enough of baking and need something really easy to make! I regularly helped my Mum make these; the taste of them instantly transports me to the 1980s.
2oz/50g margarine or butter
2 standard size Mars bars
2 cups Rice Krispies (or supermarket puffed rice cereal)
100g - 200g chocolate
1. Grease and line a 20cm x 20cm shallow tin or a near equivalent.
2. Chop up the Mars bars and melt with the marge in a large heavy-based saucepan. This takes a little while and does not look pretty!
3. Remove from the heat and gently stir in the Rice Krispies. Tip into the tin and flatten with the back of a spoon.
4. When the mixture has cooled, cover with melted chocolate. The amount is up to you, personally I prefer more! Put into the fridge to set and then cut into squares.
I am now resisting the urge to crack open my "Johnny Hates Jazz" and Rick Astley tapes!
