FriYAY: We Need To Talk About Deep Fried Mars Bars

FriYAY: We Need To Talk About Deep Fried Mars Bars

We’ve always been curious about the battered Mars barm so finally, we gave them a shot and the result? ?Not as sickening as you’d expect . . . in fact, dangerously nice.


Surely we’ve hit peak donut at this by this point, so we’re looking for our next OTT indulgence and deep fried Mars bars are it. The trick we’ve found is to deep fry funsize?Mars Bars… way, way healthier.

Deep Fried Mini Mars Bars

Makes 10-12 servings.

  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 130ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1?4 teaspoon salt
  • Sunflower oil, for frying
  • 12-15 fun-size Mars bars

Step 1

Place the flour, the milk, the egg and the salt in a bowl, and whisk thoroughly to make a smooth quite thick batter.

Step 2

Fill a small pot up to 5cm with the oil and place over a medium heat for about five minutes. To test that the oil is hot enough drop a small bit of the batter in, if it sizzles and immediately pops back to the surface then the oil is ready.

Step 3?

Dip the each Mars bar into the batter, then carefully lower into the oil. Fry until golden in batches of two or three, then drain them on a paper towel for a couple of minutes. Serve with some vanilla ice cream and a good dollop of shame and self-loathing, as befits eating a deep-fried Mars bar.
