You may remember I recently posted a top 10 of the recipes I wanted to try over the next few months. With the sudden change in weather, I became all inspired for spring time bakes, it makes such a difference to your mood when the sun shines. Unfortunately in England, the sun never lasts for long, but still holding on to spring, I thought I would try and make these deliciously chocolatey Malteser Tiffin, the original recipe courtesy of BBC Good Food.
They are really easy to make and can easily be whisked together in a few minutes, the hard part is waiting the 2 hours it needs to set before being able to cut into it! (Oh, and making sure you don’t eat all the Maltesers!)
- 200g milk chocolate
- 100g unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 125g digestive biscuits
- 135g bag of Maltesers
For the topping:
- 200g milk chocolate
- 25g unsalted butter
- 1 tsp golden syrup
- Line a 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
- Place the 200g of chocolate, butter and syrup in a heat-proof bowl and melt over a pan of barely simmering water or in the microwave. Personally I prefer over the hob, I’m always so worried I will burn the chocolate in the microwave .. Nothing worse then when it goes all bitty and lumpy!
- Once almost melted, remove from the heat and gently stir until any tiny bits chocolate have melted and then allow to cool.
- Place the biscuits and only 35g of the Maltesers in a freezer bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. You want mainly crumbs but a few small chunks of biscuit is fine.
- Tip the crushed mixture and whole Maltesers (save 1 or 2 for yourself) to the melted chocolate and stir until everything is coated.
- Press into the prepared tin and then prepare to make the topping.
- For the topping, melt the chocolate, butter and syrup as before and spread over the biscuit base.
- Cover the tin with cling film or foil and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before cutting into squares.
And there you have it! It really is so simple to make and absolutely delicious! It may still kind of seem on the edge of winter with its stodgy chocolatey goodness, but I think it’s going to be a sure favourite over the up and coming months. It’s just a really nice, simple snack that can be enjoyed over a cuppa on a Sunday afternoon, and after all, aren’t those the best types of bakes?
What do you think to the Malteser Tiffin? Will this become one of your favourites?
