Recipe Scene: Mars Bar Slice

Mars Bar slice is so wrong but so right.  Whenever I see either rice bubbles or mars bars on special at the supermarket I figure it’s the universe telling me I need to make this.  I’ve not made it with any other chocky bars but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work with Snickers just as well.  If you want to up the chocolate quota you can make it with cocoa pops instead of rice bubbles.


4 Mars Bars

120 grams butter

140 grams rice bubbles

White, milk or a mix of chocolate melts

Dash of vegetable oil


  1. Line a slice tin with baking paper.
  1. Chop each Mars bar into 5-6 pieces, place in a glass bowl along with the butter and melt in a microwave on medium for 2 minutes. Stir and keep heating on medium in 30 second increments until the butter is melted – for some reason the nougat layer doesn’t completely melt, but that’s fine and to be expected.
  1. Mix the rice bubbles through and spread into the prepared tin. Flatten the surface and place in the fridge to set.
  1. The slice can be eaten as is but I like to top it with chocolate. You can top with either white or milk, or a combination.  For a combination, melt the white and milk in separate bowls.  Place dollops of each randomly over the slice til the whole surface has some chocolate on it, then draw a skewer through the chocolate to make a marbled pattern.  Allow to set completely before cutting.
