Mars Bar biscuit cake

After a run of posts on health and fitness I feel I need to redress the balance and add some sugar to the blog. I had a recipe in an Asda magazine yonks ago for a refrigerator cake which I'd made and loved.

I've since lost the magazine but thought I'd try to recreate it this afternoon. It's deliciously decadent and not for the faint hearted (or dieter, diabetic or those on a budget for that matter) but y'know, sometimes when it's cold, rainy and the kids need entertaining so you just have to chuck out the rule book.

You will need:

3 Mars Bars, chopped into small pieces
80g Butter
6 Digestive biscuits, crushed
Bag of Malteasers (I had a big bag but only used half in the cake. The rest went in my tummy)
40g Raisins
Large bar Galaxy

1. Melt the Mars Bars and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring frequently (mine curdled when they melted, I just removed them from the heat and whisked rapidly until they combined and it was fine)

2. Add the remaining ingredients to the melted chocolate and stir well

3. Pour the mixture in a suitable dish and spread evenly until about 1cm thick

4. Pop in the fridge for 3-4 hours until set

5. Melt the Galaxy in a bowl over a pan of simmering water

6. Pour over the now-set biscuit cake

5. Devour heavily, guilt-free. Cos sometimes you've just gotta.


  1. OH MY! I am so making these for our picnic on the way to our holiday!
