This malteser cake / slice is so gorgeous and easy to make – you don’t even need to put the oven on! Only 1 bowl to wash up too, my favourite kind of recipe. I am not quite sure what to call it, some people call it fridge cake or malteser traybake but we’ll just go with malteser cake.
It is so quick to throw together I will definitely be making this to serve when we next have people around for a cuppa. It would also be great at kids parties or to get the children to help you make as nothing gets particularly hot.
I don’t know if it is the hot weather than is making me resist putting the oven but I have a seriously big thing for no-bake cakes at the moment so keep visiting my blog for more recipes. In the pictures, I halved this recipe as I didn’t have many maltesers or chocolate in 🙂
- 100g butter
- 200g milk chocolate
- 4 tbsp golden syrup
- 225g digestive biscuits
- 225g maltesers ( I used a mix of white and milk chocolate maltesers)
1. Add the butter, syrup and milk chocolate (broken into chunks) to a microwavable dish. (or a pan on the hob if you don’t want to use the microwave).
2. Add the biscuits to a freezer bag and smash with a rolling pin until they are just crumbs.
3. Melt the chocolate, butter and syrup in short bursts in the microwave (or over a low heat on the hob) until fully melted. Try not to let it get too hot.
4. Add the biscuit crumbs to the chocolate and mix well.
5. Add the malteser and give it another mix to incorporate them with the biscuit and chocolate. Don’t worry if they don’t stay in the mix very well, it all sticks together when it is squashed into the tin.
6. Squash the mix into a baking tin lined with baking paper (approx 9 x 7inch or equivalent). Compact it down well. (I forgot to line mine and it was still OK, but I could have got it out without cutting if I had lined so I will next time).
7. Pop in the fridge for a few hours to set. Remove from baking tray and and slice into squares.
Try not to eat it all at once! L x
