The problem with not being able to resist a bargain when you see it, is that you inevitably end up with things you a. forget about b. you don’t need or c. you end up with waaay too many. When I did a recent stocktake of the pantry I was a little shocked to discover a total of 14 Mars Bars hidden in various places so I knew I needed to turn them into something before the urge to start eating them began. I decided to adapt my easy Chocolate Malteser Fudge recipe and turn it into three ingredient Mars Bar Fudge.
Thanks to having a well stocked pantry I had already had the remaining two ingredients on hand – condensed milk and milk chocolate.
This fudge recipe is REALLY simple, all you need to do is melt the chocolate and condensed milk before stirring in cut up Mars Bar pieces – yep it’s that easy.
Three Ingredient Mars Bar Fudge
- 400 g of Milk Chocolate
- 395 g tin of condensed milk
- 4 x Mars Bars
- Line a 20cm square cake tin with baking paper - make sure you leave plenty of paper hanging over the sides to help you remove the fudge once it has set.
- Roughly chop the Mars Bars into pieces and set aside until needed.
- Pour the condensed milk into a medium saucepan over low heat and add the milk chocolate - which has been broken into squares.
- Cook condensed milk and chocolate mixture and stir regularly until the chocolate has melted and the ingredients have combined.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the chopped up Mars Bars before quickly stirring through.
- Pour the fudge into the prepared tin and place in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours (preferably overnight) to set.
- Remove the set fudge from the fridge and cut into squares.

Both of the boys were keen to help me out with this recipe, and our big boy was very excited to help me take the photos, although I had to decline his suggestion to put a couple of pieces into the back of one of his trucks!
