12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies - Mars Bar Squares

A couple years ago my Mom, sisters and I started getting together and doing our Christmas baking. We spent hours scouring the internet for yummy and original cookies and squares. One of my favorite squares is Mars Bar Squares and for some reason I only make them at Christmas time. They are so delicious that I really need to make them more often. These squares are ridiculously easy to make and are really heaven in your mouth. They just melt and are the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy. My other favorite holiday treat is Baileys and as you can see from my picture in my mind mars bar squares and Baileys are the perfect combination. Enjoy!

Week 10 Twelve Weeks of Christmas:


  1. That's so nice that you gyus get together to do your baking, what a special time that must be (and sweet too!) These look really good, and easy! I will have to try some.

  2. I like that any chocolate candy bar could be substituted in these bars:) I bet they're delicious!

  3. OOooooh...I've had a recipe for those hanging out in my kitchen for ages and I've been meaning to make them. Maybe I finally will this year!

    And Baileys. MMMmmm. Pax Lodge. Christmas card party. YUMMY!

  4. These bars look so simple... and delicious!!!
    And I like the suggestion to eat with a glass of Baileys! Perfect dessert!

  5. These look so yummy! I can't wait to try them!

  6. Yum, I'm always looking for new ways to dress up ordinary rice krispie treats and these sound perfect. Do you think these would work with other candy bars too like Snickers? By the way, I'm holding a giveaway on my blog for Orglamix Organic Makeup and you're welcome to come by and enter.

  7. As soon as I saw "Mars bars" I knew you were from Canada. :o) I bookmarked these immediately and can't wait to make them. Mars bars are my very favourite candy. I've never seen these squares before. Thank you so much for sharing!

  8. It's always so much fun baking with family and friends around the holiday season--I always look forward to it!
    The bars look fabulous!

  9. I made them for a Guide meeting this weekend - Melynda they loved them! (I have to wait before I can try them) Alex loved them too, but that was almost a given! Thanks for posting this recipe!
