    Serves: 20 

    • 140g puffed rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies
    • 300g Mars bars, chopped
    • 100g butter
    • 250g dark cooking chocolate, chopped
    • 75ml cream

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:1hr setting  ›  Ready in:1hr40min 

    1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add chopped Mars bar and stir until completely melted. (The mixture will be sticky and caramelly in texture). Stir in the puffed rice, mix well to fully incorporate.
    2. Line a large baking dish with baking parchment. Press the chocolate-puffed rice mix into the dish whilst still warm.
    3. Heat cream in a saucepan until just begining to bubble. Add dark chocolate and continue to stir as it melts. Remove from the heat and mix until smooth. Stand for 5-10 minutes to allow it to thicken, then beat the ganache until smooth.
    4. Pour chocolate ganache over the chocolate-puffed rice. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until the ganache has set.

    Delightful! I also 'tweaked' things by swapping the topping and added 500g of chocolate orange pieces broken up into small pieces, sprinkled them over and pressed them into the Rice Krispie mixture... mmmmmm xxxx  -  17 Jun 2013


    Something else. I put this into cupcake cases and added a mini egg to the top instead of the chocolate ganache mix.  -  29 Mar 2011
