Mars Bars Squares

marsbarsquare_512x384

Sometimes simple can be simply the best. Returning to amazing tasting but completely bad for you treats can sometimes be so soul satisfying.

Sometimes it’s nice to forget the fancies and go back to the basics. Mars Bar Squares are the basics.

Basic tasty.

Basic melt in your mouth chocolate.

Basic get out of bed at 1 am because you remembered they are in the kitchen. These and a glass of milk at 1 am in your kitchen makes up for any kind of day you had.

Or more like sneaking into your sisters kitchen to eat them, since I made these in her place while visiting. Thus the different kitchen in the pictures.

Ingredients Needed:
4 Mars Bars
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 cups Rice Krispies

Topping:

1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter or margarine

What could be a greater start than melting chocolate bars with butter? I can’t think of anything to be honest.

When that’s done, mix the Rice Krispies in with them, then transfer to a well greased 9×9 pan.

Melt the chocolate and butter for the topping, then pour it on top.

Cool in the fridge then cut into pieces and serve.

These are the best! My mother in law introduced me to them. I only make them at the holidays though or I'd eat them all the time! Lol

I'm guessing it's close to our Milky Way? Or is it more like snickers? I'm pretty sure I've had a Mars bar before but they were discontinued here awhile ago.

Can these be made without the chocolate topping?

Yes. I prefer them that way. My grandkids say it's to sweet with the frosting.

I have a similar recipe that calls for 8 milky way bars, 2 sticks of butter and rice krispies (same as in rice krispie treats recipe) in a 9x13 pan. Then a pkg of chocolate chips and stick of butter melted for topping. SO YUMMY but we call them triple angioplasty bars.

Thank you for this recipe! Someone at our old church used to make these all of the time for tea time and I'd lost the recipe. I think Milky Way bars are probably also a good substitute for Mars bars, if you can find them!

I was wondering if I could substitute Crisco for butter (as I am out of butter)?

Saw this recipe on the Stir by CafeMom but can not find Mars bars in our area. I can't remember if they taste like Snickers? Could you suggest a substitute bar? Thank you!!!
