Mars Krispie Squares

Our favourite dessert recipes around here are quick, easy, toddler-friendly, and deliciously sweet.  This one, shared with me by a coworker, fits the bill perfectly.  We've added our own flair, of course.

Mars Krispie Squares, Lilah Style

1.  Put on a cute apron - looking adorable in the kitchen makes the food taste better.

2.  Melt 1/2 a cup of butter with 4 Mars Bars over low heat, stirring frequently until melted and smooth.

3.  Mix together with 2 cups of Rice Krispies.

4.  Pack mixture flat into a square(ish) pan.

5.  Lick the spoon.  Yum!

6.  Cool in fridge, about 2 hours, or overnight, if your mom says it's time for bed before the pan has cooled.

7.  Melt a package (minus a few handfuls here or there) of milk chocolate chips in the microwave, about a minute on high, removing at the 30 second mark to stir.

8.  Pour melted chocoloate on top of squares, smoothing with a spatula.

9.  Put pan back in the fridge and allow to cool for at least an hour before cutting.

10.  High five!

    Edible! The squares look tasty too. Have you tried her on grilled peanut butter and bacon sandwiches yet?

    PS: It's 'flair'.

    1. Oops, BAD WORD NERD! Thanks for catching that.

      As for the peanut butter and bacon sandwiches, she's a huge fan of peanut butter, but not so much on the bacon. One day she will come to appreciate the wonder that is bacon. For now, we stick to boring, toddler-friendly food combinations.

      From a Kathy Shaidle post titled Me, in a nutshell: "I just found a typo in the Victoria's Secret catalog."

      Cheese. I forgot the cheese. Peanut butter, bacon, cheese. She'll grow into it. What a cutie!

  3. Adorable little cook in the kitchen. Great recipe! Might have to try it out with my girls. Thanks for sharing!

  4. She is the prettiest little girl ever!!

  5. Cooking with toddlers is the best. Recipe sounds overthetop chocolate. No doubt a big hit.

  6. I love. love, love that recipe. It knocks people socks off and is quick. Oh and did I mention I could eat half of it myself.

  7. This is quite similar to a recipe that I tried recently and they really are scrumptious!

  8. Good Lord, those sound sinfully delish! Cute, cute pics. Where's the final photo of Miss Lilah eating the bars? :)
