Fudgy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Mars Bar Squares

The classic Mars bar consisting of chocolate delicious chocolate nougat and salted caramel has gotten a proper maker-over and is now vegan and pretty darn wholesome. Plus, the melt-in-your-mouth sensation of these bars are so say the least divine. 



Chocolate nougat base

  • 100g / 3,5 oz pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp nut  or seed butter of choice
  • 30g / 1 oz melted dark chocolate
  • 60g / 2,1 flour nut or oat flour (I used half almond- and half oat flour.
  • A hearty pinch of salt
  • A splash of vanilla essence


  • 3 tbsp liquid sweetener of choice
  • 100g / 3,5 oz nut or seed butter of choice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Chocolate Ganache

  • 80g / 2,8 oz dark chocolate broken into pieces
  • 2 tbsp liquid sweetener
  • 1 tbsp water
  • A hearty pinch of salt


  1. Line a square dish with plastic wrap or parchment paper. My dish 10×10 cm / 4×4 inches.
  2. In a food processor combine all the ingredients for the nougat base to a firm dough. If too dry and crumbly, add a little bit more melted chocolate. Transfer the dough to the pan and press out into an even base layer.
  3. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the caramel and evenly spread on top of the base. Place in the fridge and let firm up for at least three hours.
  4. Prepare the ganache by placing all the ingredients in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on low to medium effect for 30 second intervals until the chocolate has almost completely melted. Once melted enough, mix until you get a smooth ganache. Evenly spread on top of the caramel layer and let set. Once the ganache has set, cut the square into 12 equal bars, and enjoy.


To achieve the perfect melt-in-your-mouth experience these are quite sticky and hard to deal with when in room temperature. Preferably store and serve them straight from the freezer. *Can be subbed with an equal amount of date based caramel
