betty's no bake "malteser" slice

Recipe by
Betty Bramanis

So I have a thing for maltesers. I love them! I think I just really like the combination of malt and chocolate. Anyway, this is a no bake slice filled with malty and chocolate goodness. This is a large batch that I make (I have 3 teenage sons who are all big eaters), feel free to halve. These make a great gift for teachers and friends around the festive times of the year.

How To Make betty's no bake "malteser" slice

  • 1
    Grease and well line a LARGE 40 x 25 cm tray or two 20 x15 cm trays (a large 16 x 10 inch tray)
  • 2
    Crush the cookies together - use a bag and a rolling pin. A food processor turns it into dust with ease, so if using instead - pulse and check every couple of seconds.
  • 3
    Place the crumbs into a large bowl and mix in the malt powder.
  • 4
    Cut the maltesers and add to the bowl - as they are round, they are tricky to chop.
  • 5
    In a medium sized saucepan, melt and mix the condensed milk, butter and syrup. Stir well to combine and do NOT let boil. Stir constantly. When a light gold colour, take off the heat and pour into the cookie crumb mix. Stir well and press into the prepared pan.
  • 6
    Top with melted chocolate and refrigerate and chill for about 2 - 3 hours (this is the "cooking" time).
  • 7
    Slice into squares and place into a tupperware style container for freshness. Please note, that in the hot weather this may need to be stored in the fridge.
