My husband has a very sweet tooth, he loves the Mars Bar Chocolate crispy cake, (like the rocky robin) but could never find one that tasted like it used to. So he read the ingredients on the packet and decided to make his own.
The ones for sale had cherries, and crushed biscuits that seemed to go stale as you were eating it. He decided to make his own recipe for Gooey, Chocolate Crispy, Marshmallow, Mars Bar Cake, and it has so many caloires shhh....
Ingredients for Your Shopping List
What you will need
And a little bit of strength
Now my husband is 6ft 10" and an ex ice hockey player so you can imagine his build. Seeing him in the kitchen at the cooker is a rareity in itself. But he was determined to make his favourite crispie cake. I was desperate not to make a fuss and encourage this new found inspiration to explore this foreign part of the house for him. Our daughter helped out too, eating the Marshmallows!
- microwave/or pot of hot water (to melt the chocolate)
- large wooden sppon
- Heavy based medium sized pot - he likes to use our soup pot as it is good to grip onto when mixing.
Ingredients to make a medium sized baking tray of finished cake1 Pkt Cooking chocolate - dark or milk1/6th of a medium sized pkt Butter or margerineRice crispies - cerealMini marshmallows - you can cut up larger marshmallows if you can't find mini onesGolden Syrup4 or 5 Mars Bars
How to make your Crispie Cake
Melt the butter and Syrup together in the pot and mix well until all melted. Add in the chopped up Mars Bar chunks, and stir until melted, this should not be done over a hot heat, you just want to melt it all.
Once all melted.
Slowly add in the rice crispies, until the mixture is all used up - the mixture gets very tough to stir at this point and you need a lot of strength.
As you are doing this add in the mini marshmallows, bit by bit stirring until all mixed up. Yes its gooey.... real Gooey.
You are going to transfer the mixture onto your greased baking tray, and pat down.
My husband can be seen beating the poor mixture into place with the fish slice! (he also dips it in hot water to make it easier to work with the mixture.
Pu this in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour until it cools and sets.
Melt the chocolate in the bowl over the pan of hot water.
Once it is ready pour it over the mixture spreading evenly.
Place back in the fridge to set.
Once set it is ready to be sliced up and eaten.
Easy tray bake cakes to make for the School Fete
and the most popular
This is an absolute must if you have to make a tray bake for the school fete, we made two tins last year, and instead of going out with the coffees they were sold, we were amazed at how quickly they disappeared.
And have our orders in for next year, this is so easy to make, and believe me it does not last long in a house that loves chocolaty snacks.
Word spreads fast, and you know it is a winner when you are asked in the local shop, if you would make it for the Brownies Jumble sale, My husband loves it, and finds it funny how the ladies all enjoy his cake.
We also have made these gorgeous gifts for the family for special occasions.
