...and the Baking Continues...

I love, love, love this time of year! Pre-Christmas baking, pre-Christmas shopping and loads of gatherings with friends and family. All we need is a little more snow so we can hit the slopes and it would make for a perfect December.

Moving onward to more Christmas baking, I asked for others to post their faves. So here's one from Debbie Hignett. This girl knows what she's talkin' about. These look awesome and they're definitely going to find their way onto the cookie tray this year. Thanks, Deb!

Deb's Mars Bars

8 Mars Bars (regular size)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 package milk Chocolate Chips

In a large glass bowl, melt Mars Bars and butter in microwave for 2 minutes until melted. Stir thoroughly. Reheat for another 30 seconds if not completely melted but do not overcook.

Pour in 2 cups of Rice Krispies and mix well. Gradually add 3rd cup until completely mixed.
Press out in a Glass 9"x13" cake pan. Cover, with plastic wrap, making sure plastic is not touching the Mars Bar mixture.

Put in refrigerator for 1 hour to set. Melt the milk chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave for about 1 ½ minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until completely
melted. Take Mars Bar mixture out of refrigerator and pour melted chocolate over. Spread evenly.

Return mixture to refrigerator for at least one hour. Allow mixture to warm up for half an hour before cutting in to squares so that the chocolate top does not crack.
