Mars Bar Brownies (Leiths)

This is an old ‘decadent’ favourite of mine ever since I saw the recipe in one of our evening news papers. Somehow I’ve lost the recipe but there are lots of others scattered about the web which are all very similar, but these days I just ‘wing’ it.

Note: this recipe works fine without the Mars bars, but by adding them will produce a different texture and overall flavour.


3 Mars Bars.

Butter. 140g.

3 Eggs.

75% Cocoa solids (or higher) Plain Cooking Chocolate. 200g.

Self Raising Flour. 85g.

Castor Sugar. 225g.

Step 1.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Add the eggs and sugar, then gently whisk until mixed thoroughly.

Step 2.

Cut the Mars bars into bite-sized pieces. Stir in the flour then add the Mars bar pieces. Transfer the whole mixture to a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and place in a pre-heated oven 180 Centigrade. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until a knife, when passed through the mixture, comes out with moist crumbs.

Step 3.

Allow to cool then cut into regular sized brownie pieces.

It should look something like this bottom picture: fairly firm but still moist and spongy. Now just you try and resist eating it!

  1. I’ll take the whole tray please 😉

    Seems so easy.
    I just bought 10lbs of flour from a neighbor. She posted on the Neighborhood site that she was going to buy a 50lb bag of flour and would sell some to anyone interested. She had to buy this big bag because all the stores were completely out of flour. I had a few bags and I have plenty of Almond flour…..but I really want to practice my bread making skills. So I am sure I will go through all of that flour for one descent loaf of bread.
    I hope.
