Deep Fried Mars Bar: Eit one a di an dei yong and hapee

"Eat one a day and die young and happy" (Scottish saying).

Chef Sunny Anderson claimed that a deep fried Mars bar was the "Best Thing I Ever Ate" on the Food Network. She enjoyed the tasty treat at A Salt & Battery in Greenwich Village, NY. Guess where I'm going to grab a bite the next time I'm in the Village? (literally a 'bite'.)

Found a recipe for it below. It's illustrated wonderfully and yet it looks disgusting! Love the intro though.
Scotland, a beautiful small European country, is blissfully free of ageing populations. The Scots die young and don't cling on their pensions for decades like Japanese centenaires, sucking the blood of younger generations. What's their secret? The Scottish Diet, an age-old combination low in fresh fruits and vegetables and high in confectionery, fat enriched meat products, sweet and salty snacks accompanied by generous amounts of sugary drinks and alcohol.

The golden rule of the Scottish diet is that fat, sugar and alcohol should each account for at least 30% of your daily calorie intake. You may eat one serving of fruits per week, preferably as jams or preserves.

One of the best example of this wonderfully nutritious diet is Scotland's National Dish, the deep-fried Mars bar. The owner of Fish-and-chips «Café Piccante» in Edinburgh let me into his kitchen while he made one.


another recipe from the food network is here.
