  1. Yum! This was super easy to make & looks delicious with all the caramelised chunks of mars bar on top - great recipe! I did half the size though (8) and it only took about 35mins to cook so keep an eye on it as you want it soft & chewy not dry : )
  2. absolutely scrumptious!!! easy as too. I am not happy with the calories .....but as an impressive thing for dinner guests, I am sure they will be pleased. I havn't put the mars bars in the top as suggested, I have melted one into a white chocolate ganache (to make a caramel icing), and then I am going to chop up the other one on top as a decoration. Thanks a bunch. Well done!


My fiance & I have lived in Melbourne all our lives and we love it, it's so diverse & exciting. We went on a world trip in '04-'05 including the US, UK, France, Italy, Malta, Germany, The Netherlands, Egypt, India & Japan. It was awesome, but great to get home & relax too. :) The link on this page will take you to my YouTube channel which has slide-show videos of my pics, featuring some amazing street art around Melbourne. I think it's rude to leave 1 star ratings! To me it's like eating someones cooking then saying "ERGH!" to their face!! :D So we don't give 1 star ratings. If we really don't like something, then it's no stars & a description of why it didn't live up to our expectations, or we may just remove the recipe from our cookbook & leave it at that. We like cross-promoting recipes in our reviews, to share combinations that work, recipes that inspire & methods people may not have thought of. We can't help but put something of ourselves into each recipe we try <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
