Hi everyone and welcome back to my baking blog.
it has been a busy last couple of days baking wise and this time I shall be giving you all the recipe for malteser bars; double chocolate and biscuit treats filled with crushed maltesers. These were first introduced to me at secondary school and I have been making them ever since, because they are so delicious and moreish.
100g milk chocolate
100g soft spread
200g digestive biscuits, crushed
242g maltesers (2 bags)
3 tbsp golden syrup
300g white chocolate
1.Grease and line a rectangle tin with grease-proof paper.
2.Weigh the milk chocolate, soft spread and syrup into a medium sized saucepan. Gently heat until all melted.
3.Using a rolling pin, crush the digestive biscuits, either by placing the biscuits in a mixing bowl or in a freezer bag; must be stronger than a sandwich bag or it will split. If using a bowl, shake the bowl to bring the larger pieces to the top and continue crushing until you are left with crumbs.
4. Combine the biscuit mixture with the chocolate mixture and add in the maltesers (about 2/3), I like to crush up a few but leave most whole (not sure why the image looks sort of red – ignore that!).
5.Press this mixture into the prepared tin and place in the fridge to chill.
6.Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, do this slowly to avoid burning the chocolate. Then pour over the top of the chilled mixture.
7.Crush up the remaining maltesers in a bowl and sprinkle over the top. Place in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate has set.
8.Remove from the tin and cut into bars or squares. Best kept chilled (if it is warm and you risk having melted chocolate everywhere) or in an airtight container.
Beware: These will be eaten very quickly and I advise keeping a secret supply!
Just like to say thanks to Alex for attempting to help me with this! 🙂
