  • 2 tbsp golden syrup

  • 1 handful sweets to decorate

  • 4 Mars bars

  • 200g milk chocolate

  • 165g digestive biscuits


  1. Melt the Mars bars in the microwave - careful not to overheat them - stir regularly to check how they are doing.
  2. Crush the digestives up to small crumbs and add to the Mars Bars along with the 2 tbsp of golden syrup.
  3. Pack the mixture evenly into a dish so it is approximately 1cm deep all over.
  4. Gently melt the chocolate and spread in a layer over the base you have prepared.
  5. Whilst it is still melted place the sweets for decoration onto the melted chocolate.
  6. Allow it all to cool for a short time but not for the chocolate to set too hard, then cut into acceptable portion sizes within the dish.
  7. Place Mars Bar cake in the fridge to continue to cool through and the chocolate to set properly.

Handy Hint

Don't forget to cut it up before it sets too hard on the top or it can be very difficult to do!

    This was yummy and even my baby had a chance to join in! Great that it doesn't need any cooking. I stirred the Mars Bars every 30 seconds and they seemed to melt fine.

    Lovely :-) The mars bars didn't melt as such, just went into a big ball of mars bar. Could have eaten them at that point! We didn't use that much chocolate on top, and also added butter to the chocolate.
