Milky Way Krispie Bars

My step-mother sent me this recipe along with a bunch of other candy recipes. The original recipe is at

The original recipe called for plain Rice Krispies with a chocolate topping. Instead, I used Cocoa Rice Krispies and no chocolate topping. I also added a big spoonful of vegan marshmallow cream.

6 Milky Way Candy Bars
1 1/2 sticks butter, chopped
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup chopped pecans
6 ounces chocolate bark

Combine the candy bars and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. (I don't have a microwave so I did this in a saucepan over very low heat.) Microwave until melted, about 5 minutes. Mix well. Stir in the cereal and pecans. Press the mixture into a small 9 x 13 pan. (I sprayed PAM in my pan first.) Microwave the chocolate bark in a small microwave-safe bowl until just melted. Pour chocolate over the cereal mixture. Chill until firm and then cut into bars.


  1. I knew you would like those recipes, you are the only person I know who loves to cook.

    It was great having Dave here this weekend even though your dad was sick. I think Dave had a good time, I know Marisa did since he spent a lot of time with her.

    Can't wait for your visit.

  2. There were some neat recipes. Thanks for sending them to me.

    Dave had a fantastic time!
