Deep Fried Mars Bars
This recipe is a nod to my adolescent self. The bitch-herd was never tempted by a deep-fried Mars bar, but we were always threatening to give them a go until finally, my curiosity got the better of me. The result? Not as sickening as you'd expect . . . in fact, dangerously nice.
Deep Fried Mini Mars Bars
Makes 10-12 servings.
––125g self-raising flour
––1⁄4 teaspoon salt
––Sunflower oil, for frying
––10-12 fun-size Mars bars
Place the flour, the milk, the egg and the salt in a bowl, and whisk thoroughly to make a smooth quite thick batter.
Fill a small pot up to 5cm with the oil and place over a medium heat for about five minutes. To test that the oil is hot enough drop a small bit of the batter in, if it sizzles and immediately pops back to the surface then the oil is ready.
Dip the each Mars bar into the batter, then carefully lower into the oil. Fry until golden in batches of two or three, then drain them on a paper towel for a couple of minutes. Serve with some vanilla ice cream and a good dollop of shame and self-loathing, as befits eating a deep-fried Mars bar.
