Recipe: Mars Bar and marshmallow slice

I get lots of requests for this recipe, which is no surprise since it's so easy, so yummy and always a hit at kids' parties.  You might need to make a double batch as the adults will devour it as fast as the children!

I can't give away all the recipes from my FROST BITE book but this recipe is available publicly on the internet (here) because a few years ago I cooked it with Pete Evans on "Fresh", a cooking show on Channel 9 in Australia. So here it is for you to enjoy:

4 Mars Bars / Milky Way bars (enough to add up to 240g/9 oz), roughly chopped
30g (1 oz) butter
2 cups rice bubbles / rice krispies
1 cup mini marshmallows
100’s and 100’s (coloured sprinkles) to decorate

Line a 20cm (8 inch) square cake tin with baking paper.

Roughly chop the Mars Bars and place them in a small saucepan with the butter.  Melt over low heat, stirring constantly.

Combine the rice bubbles and marshmallows in a large bowl then add the melted chocolate mix. Stir quickly to coat the dry ingredients with the chocolate but don’t over-mix as the marshmallows will melt slightly due to the heat of the chocolate.

Spread over the base of the cake tin then scatter coloured sprinkles over the top.  Place in the fridge to set. Once set, cut the slice into squares.

Freeze:  Place the squares in a plastic container and store in the freezer
Defrost:  On the kitchen bench.  Not suitable for the microwave

Makes 25 squares
