Mars Bar Crispy Cake

Mars Bar Crispy Cake is a great no cook fridge cake that’s perfect to whip up for a school bake sale.  Young kids love to get involved as it involves mixing, pouring and drizzling without too many steps.

I made these with my kids for an event at their school.  They were a great success and my eldest even wanted to buy them back.

You Will Need:

  • 60g of Mars Bars (about 3-4)
  • 2 tbsp. golden syrup
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 100g Rice Krispie cereal (supermarket own brand is usually the cheapest)
  • 125g milk chocolate
  • 50g white chocolate (we found some white chocolate with crispy bits in it at the Co-op for some extra crunch)

How to make Mars Bar Crispy Cake:

  • Line a 20cm baking tin with cling film which will make it really easy to remove the crispy cake when it’s set.
  • Cut up the Mars Bars and butter into chunks.
  • Melt the Mars Bars, butter and golden syrup together in a microwave or over a pan of simmering water.  It can look quite lumpy until everything has fully melted.
  • Once melted and smooth, mix in the rice crispies until fully coated.
  • Pour into the baking tin and then pop in the fridge until set.
  • Melt the milk chocolate and then pour over the set crispy mix.
  • Leave to set for a moment and then drizzle over melted white chocolate.
  • Pop back into the fridge until all set and then you can remove and slice into 16 generous pieces.
