I live in the USA. Can I sub a Milky Way instead?
SharonThursday 4th June 2020
Hi Michelle, I believe the bar known as Milky Way in the USA is the same as the bar known as a Mars Bar in the UK, so should be fine to substitute.It should have a caramel layer in it as this will help the Rice Crispy Bites to set. Hope this helps and enjoy making this recipe!
MichelleWednesday 22nd May 2019
Could I use a whole normal sized mars bar and a half instead of the 4 snack sized ones? Or how would it work?
Lyndsey fortuneTuesday 21st May 2019
