This no bake Malteser traybake is incredibly popular with people of all ages! An easy chocolate slice with milk chocolate, crushed biscuits and lots of crunchy Maltesers!
Do you know a single person who doesn’t like Maltesers? I know I don’t! They are just so addictive.
I tend not to have them in the house for that very reason, but very occasionally I will buy a box and stash it away to make this amazing no bake Malteser slice.
Just like my mint Aero traybake, it doesn’t last five minutes in my house. It’s just as well it takes less than 10 minutes to make!
I adapted this recipe from the Nigella website. I’ve been making this since my kids were very small, and they’re legally adults now!
I still make this for family Birthdays and parties – it’s always a massive hit and luckily, it takes no time at all to make.
This no bakeMalteser traybake is perfect for any special occasion or just whenever you fancy rustling up a quick treat for your family.
It’s usually the first thing to disappear at a bake sale as well!
This incredibly easy traybake is also known as Malteser tiffin or Malteser slice.
- Milk chocolate. I love Callebeut chocolate, but if I’m honest, I also use any supermarket brand milk chocolate. You’ll need 400g milk chocolate for the traybake and 200g for the topping. If I’m on a budget, I buy the 30p bars from the supermarket – I’ve never had a problem with them.
- Golden Syrup. It’s really worth finding the golden syrup if you can – it has a unique flavour. Corn syrup, honey or maple syrup could also be used but the flavour would be different.
- Digestive Biscuits (Graham crackers in the USA) You could also use rich teas. Any plain sweet biscuit would probably work just as well.
- Maltesers, obviously! I have it on good authority that Maltesers are known as “Whoppers” in America.
You will need either a 20x20cm or 32x22cm baking tin, baking paper to line the tin and a small palette knife to spread the chocolate over the traybake.
You will also need a large heavy bottomed saucepan and a wooden spoon to combine the ingredients.
how to make malteser traybake
- Crush the biscuits. You can do this by hand or in a food processor. Don’t blitz them to fine crumbs as if you were making a cheesecake base – you need a mixture of both small crumbs and larger pieces of biscuit.
- Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup together over a low heat until smooth and melted.
- Add the biscuits and Maltesers to the melted chocolate mixture and stir well to combine.
- Tip this delicious mixture into your lined baking tin. Using a spoon, pack the mixture well into the tin, making sure you reach the corners.
- Place the traybake in the fridge while you melt the chocolate for the topping.
make the chocolate topping
- Melt the remaining chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.
- Remove the Malteser slice from the fridge and pour over the melted chocolate. Decorate the top with crushed Maltesers.
allow the traybake to set
- Pop the traybake back in the fridge and chill for about two hours, or until set.
- Remove from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature before cutting into squares.
are maltesers gluten free?
No, Maltesers are not gluten free, sadly.
Can you freeze malteser traybake?
Yes, the traybake can be frozen for up to one month. However, make sure it is defrosted fully before serving, or someone might end up with a broken tooth!
