I've heard about these fat little snacks in my travels, and every time the reviews have always been positive. So one Friday afternoon a few of us got together and gave it a crack. Behold! The Deep Fried Mars Bar! (with recipe!). By the time we'd eaten about 20, we had a truckload of batter left over and wondered how big a ball of batter we could make from it. Believe me, if you haven't tried a Deep Fried Mars Bar yet, try one, they're frickin' awesome!

First, the recipe. Nathan found this one, sounded easy enough so we gave it a shot. I think we multiplied the ingredients by 5. (yes, there was a metric crapload of leftover batter!). Doesn't matter, we had fun with it, as you'll see later ;)
Deep Fried Mars Bars Ingredients
So without further adieu, here are the pics!
We figured we'd use Mini Mars Bars so more people could try. Personally I think you're better off using the mini ones, they're easier to handle in the fryer and you don't lose as much if you screw it up
No matter what we tried, we always got the Mohawk. No idea how to fix that.... if you know post a comment!
The best thing about Deep Fried Mars Bars is by the time they're golden brown, the inside softens into this wonderful, hot, squishy caramel/chocolate mix that tastes absolutely divine! zomg I'm salivating writing this...
Yes, double dipped. Fry it once, you get the little Mohawk versions you've seen earlier. Take those, dip them in batter again, then deep fry again to get a much larger fried Mars bar! (they looked like mini octopus'... tee hee!)
It was right about here when we figured the oil was too far burnt to bother recycling, and we were over deep frying things, so it was time for Kitchen experiments! What's the biggest batter ball we could make?
This thing weighed a good few kilos. It was hard to tell, but you really had to have a good grip on that fry tray otherwise splashy splashy into the hot oil... which of course = bad...
If you haven't tried this, go out now, NOW and get some in your belly. So bad, yet soooooo good!
