WOW! A nice variation of the rice krispie treat. Milky Way bars are VERY hard to find here in Canada (especially in a small east coast town). With a little help from my sister (who lives in the US) we discovered that Mars Bars are the equivalent to the US Milky Way bars. You need to use "king size" Mars Bars or 6 of the regular size. Happy baking! You'll be sure to love this one!

These were good, not bad, not great...good. If I do make them again, I may skip the chocolate on top. I'm just not sure why they didn't go over well, I can't put my finger on it. Thanks Cheryl.

I tried these with three different kinds of candy bars - Milky Way, Snickers and Baby Ruth. I like the peanuts from the last two candy bars, but they do not melt as well as the Milky Way. The mixture becomes more liquified instead of thick and rich. They also need to be refrigerated longer. I like the topping on them because I don't think they look finished without it. Quick and easy recipe!!

I love this recipe! I am on Weight Watvhers and without the chocolate on top, it is an awesome 1 POINT!!!! Great for a chocolate craving and still low fat!!

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but this is a really common treat in Australia - they call it Mars Bar Slice. Instead of chocolate chips, using Cadbury milk chocolate bars is much better topping (nicer consistency and taste). I also prefer to serve these at room temperature so they aren't so hard. Very sweet, but like a giant candy bar.

This recipe is in a British cookbook from about 10 years ago, except it uses around half the butter used here. Anyway I made the cookbook version on the weekend - very nice although still a little too buttery! Definitely cut down on it.

I am addicted to any and all treats with rice crisps and this one is THE best!!!! I couldn't find Milky Way bars in Canada so I used Baby Ruth bars instead. I can't imagine them without the peanuts. I also doubled the recipe to fit a 13X9 inch pan. Delish!
