If you have been reading the blog long enough, you know that my mother passed away almost three years ago. There are so many things I wish I had the chance to ask her, and so many things I wish I knew… including some of the food she made! I would seriously give anything to have homemade chicken soup the way she made it – even my culinary trained husband can’t recreate it.
Mars Bars Squares
2 cups rice krispies cereal
4 Mars bars
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
1. Melt butter and Mars bars in the microwave
2. Stir in cereal and pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish
3. Melt chocolate and pour over the top.
4. Refrigerate to set, then cut into squares.
5. Try not to eat them all in one sitting. (This step is the hardest.)
P.S. I sent a few home with a friend, and the next day I received this text: “Those squares were amazing. They had cereal in them so I decided to eat them for breakfast”. I love my friends!

Aw, your post is so sweet, in so many ways. I also have cherished recipes. Mine don;t sport odd names, but strange abbreviations.
I always writ on my recipes, and in cookbooks, in hopes that when i am gone, someone will enjoy thinking of me. That sounds strange…oh, well.

Love this post and the recipe too! My dad has my mom’s recipes. At Christmas when I go out to his house to bake cookies with him, we whip them out and I get all nostalgic. I love going through those recipes. And I love seeing them in her handwriting. I think I may grab them and scan them into my computer so I can re-create them. Actually, I am going out there today. That may be my next project!! =)

Delicious sounding treat- so worthy of pinning. Others need to know about this. 😉
Great treat, but the story was even better. Thanks for sharing on Show & Tell at SNAP!
BTW, I noticed you’re joining us in April. Very excited to see you!
The sweet notes about your Mother is so precious, I’ve lost my Mother also, and feel the same way about what I now wish I could ask her. I lost her early with Dementia, long before she passed.
The recipes, yes I too, wished I would have cooked along with her, learned more the way she did things.
I just discovered your blog, I don’t have one as yet, but I am so impressed/moved by all the wonderful ladies/women/young ladies who are so creative every day and share it all. To all of you I want you to know how much it is appreciated. Thank you! Debbie from the Northwest
Delish! Thanks for linking up to our Pretty Things Party. Hope to see you back next week!

Isn’t it fun to have those remnants of cherished family recipes! This looks way too yummy. 🙂
These looks pretty tempting, thanks for sharing the recipe!
Oh, and to stretch the debate further: if you put raw food in a pot on top of the stove it “cooks” or “sautes”, etc., it can be defined by a myriad of methods. However raw food placed into an oven, “bakes” so technically, what most of us call “cookies” should be called “bakies”. : ) Not sure why this has never caught on! lol

looks amazing – and what a sweet story
Making these today! Just wondering…did you use milk chocolate chips since the bars have milk chocolate? Btw…cannit find Mars bars here in Virginia, so I’m substituting with MilkyWay. Hope they still turn out as good as yours!
Yes, I used milk chocolate!
