No, but I will anyway because this is the most indulgent and delicious way to eat Maltesers and I absolutely love it.
I may or may not have broken my philosophy of "1 sweet per week, on a Saturday" so that I could tuck into this surprisingly moreish slice.
100g unsalted butter
200g milk chocolate, chopped
3 tbsp golden syrup
225g plain digestive biscuits, finely crushed via processor
+ 100g maltesers, extra, for topping
+ 50g white chocolate, melted, for topping
Grease a shallow 20cm square cake tin and line bases and sides with baking paper. In a medium pan, melt together the butter, milk chocolate and syrup until smooth and combined. Add crushed biscuits and stir until well coasted in the chocolate mix. Add the maltesers and stir together quickly so tha thte chocolate covering on the outside of the Maltesers does not melt. Tip into prepared tin, pree into an even layer, and before transferring to the fridge, sprinkle the final 100g of extra maltesers on top. Set in fridge until set, say 2-3 hours. Once set, drizzle the melted white chocolate on top of slice. Cut into small squares to serve (should make 20 squares).
