Mars Bar Brownies

On Saturday I became obsessed with Mars Bars. I blame watching the show Chuck’s Day Off in the morning. Here is happy jolly Chuck DEEP FRYING MARS BARS. What a sin, but I became consumed with the need to have one as soon as possible.

As the day wore on I annoyed my friends by asking them where I could acquire a deep fried mars bar, or just randomly shouting out ‘MARS BAR’ !! Eventually I bought some and managed to get my bake on. It’s not deep fried, but it tastes equally as sinful.

I took a candy bar brownie recipe and smothered the top in a condensed milk, melted chocolate, cream, butter concoction that I can’t remember how I created, it was quite good though..

Here is the candy bar brownie, a little trashy, very easy and completely yummy.
