Food, part 1: Mars Bar Melts

Food. I like it. You probably like it too, everyone does. So a short series on food seems like the right thing. I’m going to go over a few very unhealthy recipes (that sounds a bit formal for the kind of thing I mean but alas there are no better words), and possibly diverge a bit. To my knowledge (ie from recall, rather than from looking through the archives), this is the first post I’ve done on food since the ill-fated omlette incident, way back at post number six. Anyway, the best place to start when it comes to food is the dessert.

‘Now’, you’re wondering, ‘what culinary masterpiece is Gary going to teach us how to make today?’ Today, today, we make mars bar melts. Here’s how:

  • Buy a Mars bar.
  • Put it in the fridge for a day. You want it to be cold to the touch and rock hard.
  • Unwrap, put it on a plate, and microwave it for 20 seconds.
  • Enjoy! If you’ve done it right, the chocolate shell should still be relatively solid and the middle should have melted. Warm goo! Nummy.

If you’ve got any masterworks of the black art of cooking that would make Mr Grossman envious, I encourage you to take this opportunity to post about them. Another, more savoury, treat in a day or two.
