Do you use just the one mars bar or part of a mars bar or what, I've never used that sort of chocolate confectionary in cooking before!

I bought pears in juice rather than syrup, so added a couple of spoonfuls of sugar to it before reducing. It's a very good, very quick pud with fruit in it. The mars bars is a good idea.

I made this but omitted the choc and used Mars bars melted in with some of the pear juice and heated - yummy!
