So all credit for this recipe goes to Simon’s Dad who first got me making these! They are incredible and defiantly one I keep handy at all times!
They are quite easy to make and seriously yummy! You don’t want to miss out on These Mars Bar Brownies!
To get started you will need:
- 2 Eggs
- 125g Caster Sugar
- 2 Medium mars bars (frozen for an hour or two)
- 75g Butter/ Margarine
- 150 Plain Flour
- 2.5ml/ 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 250g milk chocolate (your favourite makes them better)
You will also need:
- Square cake tin (Any will do though)
- Baking Paper
- 2 Medium Bowls (1 Glass)
- Electric Whisk
- Metal spoon
- Plastic or Silicone Spatula
Now let’s get to actually making them!
You first need to pre-heat the oven to 180 oC. Ensure you grease and line your cake tin with butter and baking paper. D did not like this part and hated getting butter on his hands! (TIP If you use a small piece of baking paper this is much easier and cleaner)
Next you need to melt your chocolate it is best to do this with a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water but you can use a microwave in 10 – 15 second intervals, stirring in between. Melt 175g of the Chocolate that has been broken up. Mix slowly until melted and smooth. You need to leave it to cool of a bit. I did this part myself as it uses boiling water.
Using the other bowl add the butter and Sugar together. Ensure the butter is cut into small pieces for the whisking. Whisk together until fluffy. Add the eggs to the Mixture and whisk. Both D and uncle L loved using our new hand whisk. There was a tantrum or two so I think I need to get another one! As usual this was one of D’s favourite part. They both managed to take turns too.

Stir in your Melted chocolate which should now be cool. Both D and uncle L enjoyed this. I must say we managed to not get it everywhere!
Next you will need to sift your flour and salt into the mixture and fold this into the mixture. Use the leftover chocolate to add in some chunks to the mixture along with any fruit you want to add. Fold these into the mixture too. It is fine to let kids mix at this point but do try not to let them do too much mixing as it can affect the recipe!
Now you need to transfer your mixture to your cake tin. Make sure you spread it evenly with the spatula be careful to get right into the corners. D got very excited at this point as he knows it is almost time to cook them!
Using a sharp knife (Do this yourself and be careful!) cut the Mars bars into pieces.Once cut place the mars bars all over your mixture push some down too for mars bar pieces all through or you can add them in the last step too. D and Uncle L did love doing this and we managed to not get any fingers sticking into the mixture.
Pop in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes.
Now allow to cool down but do try some warm (Just not right away let it cool a little). Cut into squares and your done!
I would have to say we all really enjoyed this recipe and it shows that not everything has to be the same! This is defiantly approved by both D and Uncle L.
