Coming back from holiday last week we stopped in the shop to grab some snacks for the flight, one of which was a Snickers Crisper bar.
I've never seen these before and once settled down on the flight I unwrapped it to enjoy whilst watching an in-flight movie.
WOW! All the chocolate nutty taste of a regular snickers bar but with a delicious light crisp texture.
I just wished I'd bought more.
So this bar has cropped up in my mind throughout the week and I decided to make my own adaptation of it using a marshmallow crispy treat base.
Here's the result.
150g Rice Crispies
200g Mini Marshmallows
400g Dairy Toffees
100g Chopped Nuts
400g Dairy Milk Chocolate
You Will Also Need:
Disposable large tin foil tray.
Firstly you will need to lightly grease the disposable tray, I find a spray oil the best for this but you could get the same results from rubbing lightly with butter or oil.
Then melt the 50g butter in a saucepan over a low heat and then add all of the marshmallows. Stir constantly until the marshmallows have melted into a beautiful gooey mess! Then pour this over the rice crispies and mix gently until the cereal is completely covered. Pour this into the tray and using a butter/oiled spatula press down and smooth out the mixture.
Now you need to melt the toffees. I find this best to do in a microwave, checking every 15 seconds to make sure they don't burn. I also added a knob of butter to the toffees to help make the melted sweets more malleable. Once melted pour this over the rice crispy mixture and once again you need to use the buttered/oiled spatula to smooth this down. The toffees will start to set quick so you need to work fast!
Next sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top and gently press down.
Now melt the chocolate, again I find a microwave is easiest so long as you check regularly. Once ready pour this over the nutty toffee and smooth out to cover evenly.
Now just pop it into the fridge to set.
Once set, remove the Snickers Crispy Treat from the tray and allow to reach room temperature. Then cut into squares and ENJOY!
WOW! This went down a treat with the whole family. The girls are keen to try other fillings now, perhaps make a fruit and nut bar or a popping candy addition!
(Make sure you let it warm up to room temperature before cutting as the toffee is really hard straight out of the fridge.)
I hope you enjoy this treat as much as we did
