Mars Bar Fudge!
*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details!*
Delicious and easy mars bar fudge with chunks of mars bar throughout. No boiling or sugar thermometers, just quick and easy fudge!
Honestly, I LOVE THIS RECIPE. I know I say that about basically all of them, but having a fudge that is so easy to make, that has melted mars bars in the actual fudge makes it taste so freakin’ good I can’t cope.
These little treats were snapped up REALLY quickly by my trusty taste testers, with people having several pieces each. Yes, it will be sweet, but what do you honestly expect from fudge? I love it either way.
You could add a bit of salt to the mix if you didn’t want it to be quite as sweet, but if you want the true mars bar fudge experience then follow this recipe. You won’t regret it
This is another one of those easy ‘cheats fudge’ recipes based on the original Carnations Recipe. I obviously change all of my fudge recipes up to slightly differing quantities, and different flavours. This time, melting mars bar into the actual fudge was SO GOOD.
You have to melt the mars bar carefully because of the nougat/fudgey part, and the caramel bit. Melting it along with the milk chocolate, the condensed milk, and vanilla on a low heat is perfect. I even use a portable gas cooker now as my ceramic hob is USELESS at melting things like this successfully!
My no-bake mars bar cheesecake and mars bar chocolate mousse have always been popular since they’ve been posted, with a chocolate and caramel delicious base. This is the delicious fudge version!
I didn’t put in too many bits of mars bar into the fudge as I had already been through 10 33g bars, and a bag of the mars bites and thought it was best to stop there. However, the small amount thats folded through, and then sprinkled on top is perfect.
Similar to my toblerone fudge, I love this one, and it tastes so perfectly like mars bar that I am addicted to it. Having made this recipe several times now, I hope you love it as much as I do! Enjoy! x
Mars Bar Fudge!
- 397 g Condensed Milk
- 500 g Milk Chocolate
- 275 g Mars Bars
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 275 g Mars Bar (chopped)
- Line a tin with parchment paper – I use a 7×10″ Brownie Tin as it makes a nice depth of fudge!
- Empty the tin of condensed milk into a heavy based saucepan, and add the mars bar, milk chocolate, and vanilla extract and melt on a low heat, stiring often so that the chocolate doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn and so that all the ingredients mix together well.
- Leave the mixture to cool for 5 minutes. Beat again, and add half of the chunks of mars bar and fold quickly. Pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture.
- Sprinkle on the rest of the mars bar bits and press into the top of the fudge and store in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours (Or preferably overnight) to set!
- Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares – I cut my tray into small squares of fudge, about 1inch in size! Return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting if its still a little soft– ENJOY!
- Mars Bars are Milky Ways in America I believe? But its worth checking out an alternative if you’re from a different country to the UK!
- You can use Dark Chocolate instead of the Milk Chocolate if you like to make it slightly less sweet!
- This recipe will last better in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks if it manages to last that long – you can also easily half or double the recipe, the setting times will just change slightly!
- Recipe updated April 2022 - original recipe had 300g milk chocolate, 125g icing sugar and 50g unsalted butter.

Hey! I love all your fudge recipes! I’m considering making some for Christmas gifts – are they freezeable? So I can batch make a load of them before I separate them out for people? x
Yes absolutely, for up to 3 months! Hope this helps! x
Omg these are amazing! I had so many compliments for them (I didn’t want to tell people how super easy they are to make!!).
Thanks Jane for yet another yummy recipe
Hi Jane, I made this with dark chocolate instead and it had little lumps in it.
I don’t know what thats about but it tasted delish.
I Love all your recipies! Thanks
Hi Jane! Do you think this would be a good size/depth in a 9×9 tin? Or would you say to stick to the 7×10 you suggested.
This sounds amazing and can’t wait to make it! X
Do u leave it in the fridge uncovered?
Hello! I was just wondering if I would be able to alter the ingredients and it would still work? My husband loves creme eggs, and has asked for some fudge for his birthday. If I just changed the Mars bar for creme egg – do you think it will work? Xx
I haven’t got any icing sugar? What does it do as have made other flavours without. Or can I use something else.
It’s just the way I make this fudge.. without, you’d need to use more melted chocolate in the mix for a good set.
Thank you will try without! How much more chocolate? As would like a good set.
I would use at least 100g more! x
I’ve made this today, I seived the icing sugar and mixed it in but now it’s got loads of clumps on icing sugar in, have I done something wrong?
Sometimes if you don’t beat it hard enough the icing sugar can stay in clumps x
I’ve made the biscoff fudge 3 or 4 times now and always perfect, I tried this one for a change but it just won’t set! It was more liquidy than the biscoff one when I was putting it in the tin and it’s just refusing to properly set! It’s sticky and soft – is there anyway I can salvage it or do I need to start all over again?
Sorry this is a little late in replying but it might’ve needed a little more chocolate perhaps, but freezing it should help it set better! x
Is it possible to freeze this please? Thank you!
This was delish! Used snickers bars instead and turned out perfect. Making them for Christmas gifts and I have a feeling people won’t be disappointed ☺
Looks yummy! I love fudge, thank you for sharing
