Thanks to everyone who commented on the Mother's Day spread post. I was along at mum's this morning and she said she didn't have any tea* on Sunday evening - she just had another melting moment from her doggy bag!
She really had a great time and can't wait until the next time we do it! :o)
*"tea" is what we, in Scotland, call our evening meal.
So, for Anna and anyone else who'd like them, here are the recipes for melting moments and mars bars cakes. They are both easy recipes and oh so more-ish.
5oz plain flour
½tsp baking powder
170ºC (fan oven)
Cream butter & sugar. Add flour, baking powder and egg. Roll into balls and dip into krispies. Top with half a cherry. Bake for 15 - 20 mins.
MARS BARS CAKES
4 Mars bars - chopped up small
4 oz margarine
4 cups Rice Krispies
Melt the marg and Mars bars slowly in a saucepan mixing it together well. Put the krispies into a big bowl and pour the Mars mixture over.
Stir well coating all the krispies. Put into a greased baking tray (12” x 9”) and leave to set. Cut into bars.
These can also be made in cupcake cases or muffin cases.
Now, if my memory serves me correctly, what we call Mars Bars over here are called Milky Ways in the US. This is what it looks like inside -
