Recipe: Mars Bar Fudge

Yes, I am now obsessed with making fudge, its become a sort of little hobby of mine I’ve been making it so much I love it and it’s always welcomed by friends and family. Here is a recipe for some mars bar fudge that I made last week which was my favourite combination which was based on the dark chocolate fudge I made a few weeks ago.

Method:

  1. Line a high sided baking tin with baking paper and grease well.
  2. Break the chocolate into squares and chop the mars bars into random pieces.
  3. In a medium pan add the double cream, sugar, butter and glucose and melt together over a medium heat. Once all the ingredients have combined together, turn up the heat and continue to heat until 110 degree Celsius (this is where you will need the sugar thermometer). Try not to stir the mixture too much but you will need to to prevent the mix burning and just remember be careful because sugar work is hot!!
  4. Once the mix is up to temperature, take off the heat and stir in the milk chocolate until fully mixed in and the mix is smooth and glossy.
  5. Next, whisk in the cocoa, be careful as the mix will still be extremely hot.
  6. Once everything is all mixed in pour the fudge mix into your prepared tin and leave to cool for a few minutes.
  7. Randomly place the chopped up mars bar all over the top of the fudge, they will sink in slightly.
  8. Chill in the fridge for a few hours and allow to set.
  9. When the mixture is set chop up into nice little (big) squares and enjoy.

Recipe: Frozen Mars Bar Melts

These little treats are simple to make and great for any occasion but be warned they’re ridiculously gooey and chcocolatey and well just pure heaven, it’ll be hard for you to control yourself. I made these in nice little cake cases but would probably work better in ramekins or plastic ice cream bowls would look the part.

Method:

  1. Chop your mars bars into small pieces.
  2. Set a large bowl over a pan of boiling water and melt together the chocolate and butter.
  3. When it’s all melted take off the heat and whip the mix together, this may take some time and the mix may look like it’s splitting but persist until a lovely glossy smooth mix forms.
  4. Add the cream and again give it a good mix until it’s all mixed in and smooth and glossy.
  5. Transfer your mix into  a jug and pour into your cases/ ramekins/ bowls and put in the freezer to set for at least a few hours.
  6. Take out, top with cream and enjoy straight away. Mmmmm. Enjoy!!
