I saw a yummy recipe for Maltester Slice over on the beautiful Bake Play Smile blog. I love maltesers. I love white chocolate. And I love things that don’t need baking, because Amelie can help with the whole process. It was my lovely friend Alice’s birthday at the weekend so I thought I’d make these to take to her party (otherwise I would eat them all at super speed in a bid to just “get them gone so I can start eating healthy”. Is that just me?)
I adapted this recipe from Bake Play Smile. Here’s how you make them:
- 250g Digestives
- 2 cups Rice Crispies
- 125g butter
- 400g tin condensed milk
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- 200g maltesers
- 200g white chocolate
1. Line a 20 x 30cm rectangular baking tray with baking paper. Place your biscuits into a bag and whack them with a rolling pin until they’re crushed. Kids love this bit. Mums love this bit too (good for stress relief!).
2. Put the biscuits in a bowl with the rice crispies and a cup of maltesers (halved).
3. Place the butter, condensed milk and cocoa into a saucepan and simmer, whisking until smooth.
4. Pour over the dry ingredients & mix together, then place and press into the tray.
5. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, then pour on top of the mixture and smooth out. Pop the maltesers in, spaced out into bite sized pieces.
6. Refridgerate to set then remove from the tray and chop into pieces with a sharp knife.
happy birthday Alice!
