Tweaking the Recipe
This particular Mars bar slice doesn’t have a chocolate layer on top, as most recipes do. This missing layer is mainly due to the amount of extra effort and time it takes to do this. If you would like to go that extra step, then be sure to check out the cooking tips below.
To add even more chocolate to this slice, you can mix in some chocolate chips. Personally, I would use milk chocolate, but you can experiment by using white chocolate instead.
For more flavor, you can try adding some chopped nuts into the slice mixture. Something like chopped walnuts, macadamias, or even hazelnuts will work quite nicely. Try not to add too much as it might affect the slice’s ability to stay together.

Mars Bar Slice Recipe
- 3 Mars Bars
- 3-4 cups rice bubbles (Rice Krispies)
- 25 g (1 oz) unsalted butter
- In a microwavable bowl, add the mars bars and the butter.
- Place in the microwave and heat for about 2-3 minutes or until melted.
- Add the rice bubbles to the bowl and mix.
- In a slice pan, add the rice bubble mixture. Use the back of the spoon to smooth the mixture out.
- Place in the fridge to cool for an hour.
- Cut into slices.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- The minimum cooling time is one hour. If you can leave it for longer, then I highly recommend you do.
- If you don’t mind spending a bit more time on this recipe, you can melt 250g (9 oz) milk chocolate with a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a double boiler. Once melted, pour the chocolate mixture over the top of the slice, so you get a lovely chocolate topping. Allow to cool for about an hour or two in the fridge.
- An alternative to using a microwave is to melt the butter and Mars bars in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. It is important not to let the bowl touch the water. This process will take a bit longer and make more washing up, but you will get the same result.
