Tammy's Mars Bar Squares

Tammy's Mars Bar Squares are synonymous with potlucks. So much so that we no longer ask Tammy what she is bringing to the potluck. We just know what she will bring. Then we salivate until she puts those delicious morsels on the table.

So I decided to make some today and share it here. Here are the ingredients.
4 Mars Bars, 3 cups Rice Krispies, 1 cup milk chocolate chips, block of margarine.

Line an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with tinfoil and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, add chopped Mars bars and margarine. Tammy's recipe calls for 1/2 cup. That is the whole block. I used 2/3 of the 1/2 cup block. I suck at math, so I will let you figure that out.

Stir until melted over medium low heat. Mine has always kinda separated a little, but if you keep stirring, it becomes smooth. Add the cereal and stir till combined.

Dump the mixture into the tinfoil lined pan and press evenly with the back of the spoon.

In a small saucepan, add the chocolate chips and margarine. Melt over low heat. Tammy's recipe calls for 1/4 cup of margarine. I just used the remaining 1/3 of the 1/2 cup block I started with. I also used 1 1/4 cups of chips. You could probably do this in the microwave too, if you prefer.

Spread melted chocolate over the cereal mixture and refrigerate. Once they are hardened, remove the tinfoil from the pan and cut into squares.

They are absolutely tasty and they are like Lay's. Bet you can't eat just one!

One tip I have, don't be like me and use cheap chocolate chips. Mine tasted funny. Tammy's doesn't. Can never beat the original!
