How to make the perfect deep fried Mars bar.


If you haven’t yet tried it, then its a case of don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

To some really good healthy eaters this does sound like a dark black hole of unhealthy death, but everything is okay in moderation as they say so this has to be on your food calendar once a year. (maybe twice)

Founded by a couple of experimental Scotts in a local fish ‘n’ chip shop in Aberdeen way back in 1995, it became a nationwide sensation.

Here is a little run down on how to make the perfect Mars bar sweet.


  • 2 Mars Bars
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 10 tbs water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying

Method of madness

  • STEP 1 – Mix together a batter mixture with the flour, water and salt.
  • STEP 2 – Mixture should be runny with no bubbles or lumps so whisk the shit out of it.
  • STEP 3 – Place a small saucepan on the stove and pour in enough oil to just cover the Mars Bar.
  • STEP 4 – Heat at a low temperature. Drop in a little pinch of batter, if the batter rises, bubbles and browns it is ready to go.
  • STEP 5 – Using tongs so you don’t mess those fingers, dip the Mars Bar into the batter mix, covering the entire bar.
  • STEP 6 – Place it in the saucepan and shallow fry for around 1 minute or until you see that bad boy crunchy and golden.
  • STEP 7 – Remove from the pan and place on a plate with paper towel so all that unhealthy excess oil can be soaked up by the towel instead of your heavenly insides.

So there you go, next time you are having a cheeky bbq and a few beers try this one for the crew, they will love it!
