Frozen Mars Bar Mousse…



With my brother’s 30th coming up I wanted to spoil his sweet tooth and was prepared to take days off work to get a cake together. I spent months (not an exaggeration) researching different cakes, I had looked into purchasing soccer ball cake tins which would be shipped from the UK, I contacted the local cake supply store for special food colourings and decorations, and I asked for my colleagues input and I narrowed the list down to 10 very indulgent cakes.

His response was “the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make” and he had decided on the Frozen Mars Bar Mousse cake. The boy (man) loves his ice-cream, I should have known he would have picked the giant Mars Bar Ice-Cream cake.

Looking at the recipe, it’s quite simple. Maybe a little too simple. I always feel like I’m bound to fail when it comes to basic cooking – like roasts, I will literally stand in front of the oven watching it cook, and it is always undercooked.

So…I had to work out the time frame where I knew a group of us could come together & enjoy without the cake melting!

This is a really simple (yet indulgent) dessert which children can help to make, I think it


Moment, lips, lifetime, hips…but so worth it…

will please your inner child.


  • 6 x 60g Mars Bars
  • 600ml thickened cream
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 50g dark chocolate melted



Using a loaf pan, spray vegetable oil and then line with cling wrap.


Chop up 4 Mars Bars.


Add in 300ml of cream. Melt over a pan of simmering water or use the microwave in bursts of 30 seconds.


Add in remaining 300 ml cream and add in 3 egg yolks.


Stir and leave to slightly cool.


Using electric mixers beat the 3 egg whites until stiff peaks forms.


Fold in egg whites into chocolate mixture.


Pour into prepared pan and cover with cling wrap.


Put into the freezer and leave overnight (or at least 8-12 hours) until firm.


Turn out onto a plate, and remove the cling wrap. Chop up remaining Mars Bars and put on top.


Melt dark chocolate and drizzle over top.


Perfect for the big kid 🙂
