Deep Fried Mar's bar

  • r

Does anybody have a recipe for the batter? Also has anybody deep fried the three types of snicker bars? Regular, crunchy, and almonds.

  1. Nigella Bites contains a guide for deep-frying chocolate bars in the "Trashy Food" section I think.

      Yep, and that's where they the trash.

      I made Nigella's recipe and the results were abysmal, no one cared for them.

        I couldn't wait to try these and when I did I was so disappointed! I think they are nasty! And I like chocolate. YUK!

      I think a basic tempura batter should work fine.

      As for candy bar selections, what used to be a Mars bar in the states is now a Snickers Almond. If you want to have an authentic Scottish deep-fried Mars bar and live in the States, use a Milky Way; they're the same product, just different names on different sides of the pond. Likewise, what Brits call a Milky Way, Americans know as a 3 Musketeers.

      1. When chip shops make deep fried Mars bars they usually use the same batter they use for the fish. Also, if you are frying up a bunch of stuff don't forget to try a deep fried Twinkie.
