Malteaser Slab

I brought this into work the other day and it was so popular I am going to make a second batch! Here it is (recipe follows):

malteaser traybake


100g butter

200g digestives

2tblsp golden syrup

125g milk chocolate


2oog Malteasers (halved or smashed)

250g milk chocolate


Line cookie tin with greaseproof paper. Melt butter, golden syrup and 125g milk chocolate. Crush digestive biscuits and add to the melted mixture. Cut Malteasers in half or smash them if you’re feeling lazy! Add these to your mixture and mix well. Spread in tin. Cool in the fridge for 30 mins. Then for the topping, melt 250g milk chocolate and spread over the top. Top with marshmallows (optional).






Treats I Want To Bake

First off, you readers may have noticed a lack of posts on here (turns out my last post was in January). Whoops! – I’m sorry, time has really gotten away from me… on to the theme of this post. Not only do I have a cherry red stand mixer (best Christmas present!), but I have also been reading Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen murder mysteries, and let me tell you, these books are mouthwatering. So I am coming up with ideas to use this mixer. I have already made a Victoria sponge, and here are some other treats I would like to try:

Double Fudge Brownies

Creme Egg Cake

Orange Swiss Roll

Honey Buns

Guinness Cupcakes

These all sound so yummy!!

My Traybake: Rocky Road

As you may have noticed from my fellow classmates’ blogs, we regularly bring in baked goodies for each other (to ease the stress of college, haha). Today it’s my turn! My choice is Easter egg rocky road – a traybake consisting of melted chocolate, shortbread biscuits, mini eggs, mini marshmallows and fudge pieces. However the great thing about rocky road is you can tip anything into it, whether that’s crushed Maltesers, chocolate buttons, nuts, melted or chunky chocolate…..whatever you fancy!


The only thing that was different about the one I brought in was I had used all the mini eggs for the mix so I had none left for the top. I topped it with fudge pieces instead. I used a mixture of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate and Aldi milk chocolate for the topping.

This was a hit with my classmates (they all had two pieces each!) and I came home with two pieces left. Result!
