If you have a sweet tooth, then I guarantee you will become addicted to this. The idea came from a restaurant that has since closed down called "The Fondue Pot" in Reading. People used to come for miles around to eat this and it's so simple. After advice, I feel I should state that you should only use British Mars Bars as apparently American ones are completely different.
- Chop up the Mars bars and over a very low heat melt while stirring occasionally.
- When fully melted, add the single cream in small amounts, keeping the heat very low until there are no lumps and the mixture can coat the back of a spoon.
- Pour into a fondue pot or any bowl and serve eating with banana slices, dried apricots and marshmallows. Watch how fast this disappears!
Made this for an impromptu get-together on a Saturday night and it was a hit! I used dried apricots and pieces of leftover sponge cake that I toasted lightly first. Have this with some good friends, a wonderful single malt whisky to sip while listening to a bit of Brahms and a very pleasant evening is guaranteed!
Just a quick comment... (can't give star rating for comments)... this sounds deliciously decadent, I shall bear it in mind for my next fondue get together :) It's worth noting that this is uses the British Mars bars which are a COMPLETLY DIFFERENT product to that which is sold in the USA. I understand that the American Mars bars has a rather dense pale milky filling like the occasional limited edition dark chocolate ones they sometimes produce here (that never sell very well) and the American one has a layer of almonds. (The UK one is made with thick milk chocolate filled with a whipped choco-caramel truffle type filling topped with a thick layer of toffee-caramel and no nuts). Online reviews has said that the UK Mars is delicious (which, as it's my all time favourite chcolate treat I'm certainly not going to disagree with :) and the USA Mars is really nothing to write home about (at best). The 'Visible Mars Bar' site (Google search) has more detailed information. I DO look forward to trying this! (I shall be using British Mars bars though :)
