Malteser Slice

Eric Lanlard is a god.  This is his recipe. Need I say more?
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.

Ingredients
100g unsalted butter
200g milk chocolate, chopped
3 tbsp golden syrup
225g plain digestive biscuits, finely crushed via processor
225g maltesers
+ 100g maltesers, extra, for topping
+ 50g white chocolate, melted, for topping

Method
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).

  8. I feel so out of the loop... what's a Malteser and what are digestive biscuits? Either way, this looks amazing!

  9. I had to look up what a Malteser was- we have malted milk Whoppers here that I think are similar. If so, I'm all about these bars! I love Whoppers and can just imagine them in this chocolaty confection! :)

  13. Well you had me at Malteser but since you've thrown Eric Lanlard into the fray too I guess I'll need to go buy some maltesers so I can make this hehehehe

  14. This looks divine but I am going to have to wait for this concoction as I have a "malteaser" weakness. Whopper also makes Robin Eggs (the best!) and we call them "yobbin-eggs" named by a child having difficulty with his "r"s. I am printing this one out!

  28. One sweet per week? Whaaat? I wish I could stick to that :) But then again it wouldn't be possible with a beauty like this. PS your Paris-Brest are super cute!

  29. Those of you deprived bloggers out there who don't know what Maltesers are ;) here is a short explanation:

    Maltesers consist of a round malt honeycomb centre, surrounded by milk chocolate. From what I can gather, the USA equivalent would be Whoppers.

  31. Eric is fabulous! He made my wedding cake years and years ago before he was really really famous. Is this from his Home Bake book? I must nip downstairs and check, it looks wonderful - I'm crazy about maltesers!

  34. Brittany, you are soooo kind to say that I look gorgeous. I am soooo old! You are gorgeous and young. It was nice to know that you wondered about having your picture too.

    These need the word "killer" added to the recipe. Oh, I have to make these. They look sinfully stuffed with richness and goodies. I am copying them off right now! Yum. My hubby is such a malt fan!
