A crunchy, rice bubbles / rice krispie base that’s glued together with melted snickers, honey and butter – umm yes please. But that’s not all. It’s finished off with chewy caramel and chocolate. I can tell you from experience near on impossible to stop at one slice of No Bake Snickers Crispy Cake.
I really love textures in food and this recipe, simple as it may be, has that in spades. Biting through that crispy base and soft oozy caramel is just bliss. Then the flavour just makes them totally addictive.
What Is A Crispy Cake?
Also known as a rice krispie treats, crispy cake is a combo of rice bubbles or rice krispies (depending on where you are in the world) and normally marshmallow.
Sometimes chocolate and other add-ins are added to create fun and delicious treats irresistible to kids (and many adults too).
You can make it round and cut it in slices like you would a literal cake or for simplicity, make it in an 8×8 inch baking tin and cut it into squares.
These rice krispie treats have no marshmallow, instead using the snickers and butter to set them into a firm slice. All you need is less than ½ an hour and 7 simple ingredients;
- Rice bubbles
- Milk chocolate
How To Make Snickers Crispy Cake
- Start by melting together some snickers bars, butter and honey.
- Add it all to a bowl of rice bubbles and mix it up good.
- Press it into an 8×8 inch square baking tin and place it in the fridge to set.
- Make an easy caramel and melt some chocolate, then layer them on top of the rice bubbles base and let it set for 2 hours in the fridge.
The hardest part of this snickers slice is waiting for it to set – oh and possibly holding yourself to one piece.
- Snickers: This No Bake Snickers Crispy Cake is my change up on the well known Mars Bar Slice. If you prefer Mars Bars to Snickers you can just swap them out and make a good old mars bar slice instead.
- Add-ins: try anything from smarties, to m&ms, nuts, chocolate chips, reeses peanut butter cups etc. Just pick your favourite treats and throw them in.
No Bake Snickers Crispy Cake is a fun weekend treat to make and one you can get the kids involved with too. Make two batches though – one is never enough.
