Everybody loves a Mars bar! In fact, they were recently voted the world’s second most popular chocolate bar - pipped at the post by Cadbury milk chocolate (personally, I think it was rigged!). So, it’s little wonder that when melted down with butter and mixed with rice bubbles, the result is amazing. This Mars bar slice recipe is our favourite as it has the sneaky addition of golden syrup, which gives the slice an extra buttery caramel flavour. Another reason we love this recipe is that not all the Mars bar is melted. Some is reserved, chopped and stirred through the mixture, upping the mars bar element and providing extra texture. Genius, right?

With the crunch of rice bubbles and sweet pop of cherries all bound together in a creamy white chocolate, our favourite white Christmas recipe is a no-bake, one bowl wonder.Let’s face it, here in Australia no matter how much dreaming we do we’re never going to have a snowy white Christmas. Never to be defeated, we created our own way of celebrating the frosty weather with our Northern Hemisphere friends.Why is this such a great white Christmas recipe?The thing that sets our favourite white Christmas recipe apart from the others is that we use white chocolate to bind the mixture together. Original recipes use copha which is a hydrogenated fat made from coconut oil. While there was always a block in our fridge growing up – after all you never know when you’re going to make a batch of chocolate crackles, it has fallen out of favour in recent years. The white chocolate makes a lovely substitute and you still get that wonderful coconut flavour from the desiccated coconut.White Christmas makes a great edible gift. Simply wrap in cellophane and tie with a ribbon or place in a decorative box.Other edible Christmas gifts include shortbread, rocky road, caramel fudge and nougat.Additional recipe notes by Alison Adams - Food Writer and Recipe Tester.
