Crispy M&Ms Chocolate Traybake

Readers, just a quick post from me tonight as it’s a Sunday evening and I really should be getting set for work.  I know my traybake posts are incredibly popular with all my readers, so I have a simple twist on a mars bar cake, to appeal to you all.  I added crunchy M&Ms.  It’s like the ultimate chocolate indulgence and the crisps shells on top, just add a little something.

This can be whipped up in half an hour and is an easy bake to try with youngsters – they’ll enjoy sticking the sweets on the top!

Happy Baking!

Crispy M&M Chocolate Traybake

Ingredients (serves 9)

75g butter
2 heaped dessert spoons golden syrup
3 full sized Mars Bars – chopped into a small pieces
2 cups puffed rice cereal
200g milk chocolate
Share sized bag of crispy M&Ms (the blue pack)


  1. Melt the butter, syrup and chopped mars bars on a medium heat, stir occasionally.  Keep an eye on the mix – you don’t want it burning, but it will start to bubble.   Whilst melting, prepare a silicone 8in x 8in square baking tin with baking parchment.  
  2. Once melted, stir to combine all ingredients.  Stir in the cup of rice cereal, then stir in the second cup until fully coated.   Transfer the mix to the baking tin and spread out to form a flat top. 
  3. Transfer to the fridge to set, for at least 1 hour.
  4. Melt the milk chocolate in a microwave proof bowl at 30 second intervals until melted.  Stir every 30 seconds.  Remove the tray from the fridge and pour the chocolate on the top – spread evenly to form a topping.   Allow to cool for a few moments then finish off with the crispy M&Ms.  Allow to set in the fridge for around 30 minutes. 
  5. Once set, return to room temperature and cut into 9 pieces, then serve.
