Betty's no bake "Malteser" slice

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.

  • 2 pkg
    plain chocolate cookies (chocolate ripple for us aussies)
  • 1 pkg
    malt flavoured cookies
  • 6 Tbsp
    malt powder
  • 250 g
    butter (half a pound)
  • 1 can(s)
    sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp

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.
