Ingredients we’ll need:

  • 2 Mars bars
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 260g icing sugar
  • 70g unsalted butter/soft margarine at room temperature
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp milk

Let’s get started!

  1. Let’s get started! Our first step is to cream together the butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder using an electric whisk/food processor.

3. Mix the melted Mars mixture into the bowl with the icing sugar and whisk thoroughly until all the lumps are gone.

4. If the mixture is still a little too stiff, add in a splash of milk to make it smoother and easier to pipe.

5. Spoon all of the mixture into a piping bag and you’re ready to use it!
