Baked Mars Bars [Recipe]
These measurements aren’t exact by any means… You’re going to have to pull our your own culinary instinct here a little. 😉 But don’t freak out, you can’t really mess this up– everything is pre-made, you just have to put it together. Here’s the recipe!
Baked Mars Bars – Naomi Thomson
You can find phyllo pastry (also spelled “Filo” pastry) in the frozen pastry section of your grocery store, with other pre-made pastries and pie shells.
Mars Bars (1 per person you want to serve)
1 pkg. phyllo pastry, thawed
Whipped cream, to serve
Chocolate sauce or syrup, to serve
To start out, go ahead and unwrap the Mars Bars. And again, don’t freak out– you can do it. I believe in you! 😉
Ta da! Beautiful. Place the wrapped bar, seam side down, on an ungreased non-stick cookie sheet.
If you don’t need to use all of your pastry in one go, wrap it back up in plastic and freeze it until the next time you want to use it. I would save the box you bought it in too, just so that you have something to protect it from bending into odd shapes or breaking in the freezer. If you’re not sure what else you can do with phyllo pastry, the possibilities are endless– you can always Google it, or post a comment requesting more recipes; I would be more than happy to share. 🙂
Next? Bake, decorate, and eat. Bake the Mars Bars in a 375 degree oven (Fahrenheit) for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Don’t worry if some of them burst open a little bit– just scrape the hot melted caramel away (carefully, so as not to burn yourself), and set them onto plates for serving. Pipe or spray some whipped cream in a little dollop on the side, and drizzle with homemade chocolate sauce or whatever chocolate syrup you happen to have.
Note: If you want a quick and delicious homemade chocolate sauce, put some semi-sweet chocolate chips into a small heavy-bottomed saucepan and melt them down with a bit of milk or cream, on a med-low temperature (this will burn easily, so be careful). Stir constantly, and add enough milk or cream to make it the consistency that you want. Serve warm.
