Snickers Rice Krispie Squares

Rice Krispie Squares are one of life’s great nostalgic pleasures. They bring you right back to being a kid in the school hall on bake sale day, selling these puppies off like they were going out of style, which of course, they never were.
These are probably my favourite incarnation of them, Mars bars work great as well but I think the few extra peanuts in them really bring it up a notch. This isn’t so much a recipe as a set of very vague guidelines. Rice Krispie Squares are designed to be made by three year old. So we shouldn’t have much trouble right? … Right?

7 Snickers bars

500g Milk Chocolate
100g butter
500g Rice Krispies
200g White Chocolate

The Ingredients

-First put a large pot, with about two inches of water in the bottom, on to a low simmer.
-Break up the snickers and chocolate and place them in a large bowl along with the butter over the simmering water. Keep these moving every minute or so to help them melt a little faster.
-Once they are melted add in the Rice Krispies (remember the weight is just a guideline, if you think your mix could use a few more or less rice krispies work away)
-Pour the mix out into a baking tray lined with cling film and flatten it out as much as possible.
-Pop the tray in the fridge for about an hour or so. The longer you can leave them, the better.
-Take it out, turn it upside down and lay the massive slab of hard rice krispies on a chopping board.
-Break up the white chocolate into a small bowl and microwave it for about 40 seconds, stirring halfway through.
-Pour this over the top of the squares and allow to set in the fridge.
-Cut them into appropriately sized chunks and serve to the masses of people that have collected in your kitchen after you said “I think I might make Rice Krispie Squares.”
