It’s been a while since I first posted this recipe and it’s such a goody I’m posting again! You have to give these a go. I always loved Mars Bar and apple sandwiches as a kid (still do!!) but these scones are next level.

Makes 4 big scones

225g soda bread self-raising flour

30g butter or spread

30g caster sugar

140ml buttermilk

2 Mars bars, sliced

1 small green eating apple, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks

To decorate:

8 squares melted milk chocolate

Extra Mars bar


Preheat your oven to 200 degrees fan.

Rub the spread into the flour until it resembles a breadcrumb texture.

Add in the sugar, chopped Mars bar and apple and combine.

Add in buttermilk until it forms a dough.

Don't overmix.

Only add enough milk to bind the ingredients, it shouldn't be too soft or they will spread out too much.

Put a little flour on your hands and roll each one into a round scone shape - this makes about 4 scones. Or you could roll out on a floured surface and use a cutter.

Place close together on tray and bake for 18-22 mins until just golden.

Drizzle over some melted milk chocolate and add a piece of Mars bar to each.

I prefer to leave them for half an hour so that the chocolate sets a little and are easier to cut but still warm and delicious!
