I live in the USA. Can I sub a Milky Way instead?

Reply

    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!
