Mars Bar Pie

Nothing beats chocolate. Well, apart from chocolate as part of a very sweet pie!

The original recipe came from Woman’s Day – it used Snickers, but instead I went for Mars bars and I also decided to add a caramel layer. To get the caramel I used some Nestle Caramel Top ‘n’ Fill – no work required as it comes straight out of the can!

Update: if this recipe isn’t quite what you are looking for but you still want to make something with Mars bars, then how about this cheesecake?

Ingredients:

  • 100g/1 stick unsalted butter, chopped up
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plain/all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 can (380g/13oz) Nestle Caramel Top ‘n’ Fill
  • 8-10 mini snack-sized Mars bars, sliced
  • Icing sugar to dust

Method:

  • Coat a 23cm/9in pie dish (or springform pan if you don’t have a pie dish) with cooking spray.
  • Melt the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan until the mixture starts to bubble.

  • Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in 1 egg and the vanilla, then stir in the flour and baking powder.
  • Put 3/4 cup of the mixture into the pan (don’t spread), then freeze for 10 minutes.

  • Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced/350F.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave.
  • Stir the melted choc chips, an egg and the cocoa powder into the remaining batter mix.
  • Press the chilled blondie batter evenly over the bottom of the pie dish.
  • Then pour in the Top ‘n’ Fill and spread out.
  • Top with the sliced Mars bars.

  • Then carefully spread the chocolate batter over the Mars bars, smoothing the top.
  • Bake for approx 25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with moist crumbs attached.
  • Cool before dusting with icing sugar and cutting into slices to serve.
  • Enjoy!
