175 g butter

175 g caster sugar

3     medium eggs

250 g self-raising flour

50   g cocoa powder

6-8 Mars bars

1     teaspoon vanilla essence

1     teaspoon baking powder

150 ml milk


  1. Cream the butter and sugar.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well.
  3. Add vanilla essence.
  4. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder and fold into the butter/sugar/egg mixture.
  5. Stir in the milk.
  6. Chop (quite finely) the Mars Bars and add to the mix.
  7. Grease/line a muffin tray and spread the batter evenly.
  8. Bake at Gas Mark 6/200C/400F for approximately 15 minutes.
  9. Eat!

NB. The number of Mars Bars you use will affect the amount of muffins this mixture makes, so I’ve approximated the serving figures.
