I bought a Mars Bar for a friend of mine the other day at work, we were on set and he really fancied a mars bar…. the urge to eat a mars over anything else seemed barbaric.
But as an ex mars lover I ran to the shop and bought him one, I watched him inhale the bar in seconds. Slightly remembering the mix of flavours I’ve decided to make my own.
You will need
1 Large Sweet Potato
1 Table spoon of Peanut butter
1 Large bar of at lease 75% cocoa chocolate or you can make your own.
Brown Sugar, Sea Salt, Coconut Oil, and nuts of your choice- I used pistachio and your choice of alternative milk.
bread tin, grease proof paper and cooling rack
This is the simplest brownie cake you will ever make, this is then used as the base of the bar. Place a pricked potato in the microwave till soft through to the centre. Scoop out the potato, mash and leave to cool on the side. Take 70% of the chocolate and melt with a tea spoon of coconut oil, pinch of salt and pinch of sugar or alternative…agave would also work.
Once melted add the melted mixture to the potato and mix well, place in a bread tin lined with great proof paper. Place in the oven on 200/7 and bake for 20 minutes, then leave to cool.
Once cool, slick Into bars and place on the cooling rack.
Melt sugar, tea spoon of oil, salt and dash of milk in a pan, let it come to boiling point then take off the heat and stir a table spoon of ground almonds in well. Drizzle over the bars, you can make it as thick or as thin as you like.
Leave to cool.
Melt in a bowl over a boiling water pan – the rest of the chocolate, optional dash of milk here… it can make the chocolate thicker and less runny… so its totally up to you, drizzle over your bars and leave to cool.
You can wrap these up individually and keep them in the fridge or just eat them all at once like a fat pig! X x x nom nom nom
I’m not adding a picture, something are best left to the imagination.
