Deep Fried Mars Bar Recipe

Photo: Deep Fried Mars Bar
A deep-fried Mars bar is...
an ordinary Mars bar normally fried in a type of batter commonly used for deep-frying fish, sausages, and other battered products. The chocolate bar is typically chilled before battering to prevent it from melting into the frying fat, though a cold Mars can fracture when heated.

It's History
It is said to have been invented in the Haven Chip Bar in Stonehaven, near Aberdeen on Scotland's northeast coast, in 1995. The first recorded mention of the food was in the Aberdeen Evening Express following a tip off phone call to their journalist Alastair Dalton that a chip shop in Stonehaven had been deep frying Mars Bars for local kids. The Evening Express article included a quote from Mars spokesperson who said this was the first time they had heard of this being done with their product.

Did You Know?
(MRC Social & Public Health Sciences Unit) surveyed around 300 Scottish fish and chip shops: 22% sold deep-fried Mars bars, while an additional 17% of those surveyed had sold them in the past. Of the shops selling deep-fried Mars, three-quarters had only been selling them for the past 3 years. Average sales were 23 bars per week, although 10 outlets sold between 50 and 200 bars a week.  wikipedia

This recipe for the deep fried Mars bar illustrates a typical procedure. The ingredients in the dish's variations may vary indefinitely, but the procedure will remain more or less the same. For authentic flavor, fry the treat in beef drippings rather than vegetable oil (it is worth noting the high saturated fat content this method of cooking involves).

Ingredients

  • 1 Mars Bar or 1 Milky Way Bar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon oil or fat

Procedure

  • Chill, but do not freeze, the Mars bar by leaving it in a fridge for a short time.
  • Mix the milk, flour and egg in a bowl.
  • Whisk together to create a creamy batter.
  • Heat the oil.
  • Coat the Mars bar completely in batter.
  • Lower into hot oil (around 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit, 175-190 Celsius) and fry until batter is golden brown. (Note: be careful to lower it gently; otherwise the batter may come off)
  • Serve.
