This perfect Mars Bar Slice recipe is so simple and works out perfectly every single time. Conventional and Thermomix instructions included.
I’m not the kind of girl that will walk into a supermarket and buy a Mars Bar to eat (not that there is anything wrong with that, I just usually choose a Turkish Delight instead). Add to that the fact that I never really eat a bowl of Rice Bubbles for breaky (I’m more a muesli girl). However, I do NOT stick my nose up at eating Mars Bar slice. No way!
So what is it about Mars Bar Slice that makes it sooooo darn good?
A) You don’t need many ingredients – which is great for people like me who even when armed with a grocery shopping list still somehow manage to forget things!
B) It’s super fast to make – perfect for when you have other important things to do like cook dinner, fold washing… and watch Revenge on TV.
C) You don’t even need to turn on the oven (which means you can spend your electricity bill savings on shoes).
D) It’s so easy that you could virtually make it with your eyes closed – go on, try it… I dare you!
If you’ve never tried to make Mars Bar Slice before, you have no idea what you’re missing out on… AMAZING!!!
Funnily enough I saw Mars Bar slice on sale at a cafe on the weekend and it was $4.50 for one piece! Two pieces would have paid for the ingredients to make a whole slice. Crazy stuff!!! And anyway, everything tastes better when it’s homemade, don’t you think?
