This was a while ago.
So I was on one of the groups.
A member, with her own recipe blog website had joined recently and posted a few of her recipes. Fine, a bit of self promotion.
And today she posted her Snickers Bar Cake. Her husband didn’t like Mars Bars but does like Snickers.
John, being John, though … time for a bit of fun.
I’ll need to re-type the next bit using my photographic memory skills. I’ll tell you why later.
It went something along the lines of….
Ah, well now, the old CakeyGate debate.
So if you melt some Mars Bars (without bits) with Rice Krispies and cover it with chocolate ….. you actually get a Toffee Crisp (…. John’s favourite), so you can’t call it a Mars Bar Cake.
So if you melt some Snickers Bars (with Nutty bits) with Rice Krispies and cover it with chocolate and some more Nutty bits….. you actually get a Toffee Crisp with Nutty bits (did I mention Toffee Crisps are John’s favourite), so you can’t call it a Snickers Bar Cake. If you follow my logic.
Of course, since I didn’t have a Toffee Crisp…. With Nutty bits recipe, I would have to borrow her idea.
And since we’ve had StoveyGate and MinceyGate and SconeyGate on the groups, I went off and made a CakeyGate Tee shirt.
And I was waiting for a bit of banter in response and was planning to write up the post for the website and give her a back link to her blog website.
We’ll I guess she didn’t share John’s sense of humour. I didn’t get any response or banter but when I refreshed the screen the whole post had disappeared….. along with what I’ve just regurgitated from memory….. and all of her other posts.
Oh well….. her loss.
Here’s my original Toffee Crisp recipe that I’ve changed to use Snickers Bars instead of Mars Bars. Although why they changed the name from Marathon, I’ll never understand. You can bash up some salted peanuts and sprinkle on the top if you like.
Warning this recipe may contain nuts.

- 6 or 7 Snickers Bars (That’s a difficult one since Mars and other manufacturers keep making their bars smaller or sell in multi-pack or bite size. For the avoidance of doubt we need about 300g. This will allow a degree quality checking of the Snickers bars during the chopping up process…
- 4 oz rice krispies
- 6oz butter
- 6oz Milk chocolate
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- a handful of salted peanuts, chopped up small (optional)
- Line a 8 inch square baking tray with greaseproof paper
- Chop up the Snickers Bars and put them in a pot with the butter and melt gently over a low heat, stirring frequently.
- Once melted, mix well to get rid of any lumps.
- Add the rice krispies and mix well to get them well coated in the Snickers bar sauce
- Transfer the mixture onto the baking tray and press into the corners. Smooth with a spoon to ensure the top is smooth
- Set aside to cool for about an hour
- Put the chocolate and oil in a jug and melt in the microwave in 20 second blasts
- Pour the chocolate over the top of the Krispy mixture and smooth out with a spoon to get the chocolate into the corners
- Sprinkle with the chopped nuts and leave to cool again until the chocolate sets and then put in the fridge for an hour to set
- Remove from the tray using the great proof paper.
- Cut into squares using a sharp knife
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge to keep them crispy as possible and the chocolate firm.
