Triple Chocolate Malt Bars

I sat here for awhile pondering what to call these bars. On one hand I would love to call them triple chocolate malt blondies and on the other hand I would love to call them chunky triple chocolate malt cookie bars. But neither of those really seem to fit because the end result is a perfect combination of both - a soft and chewy yet dense bar that is studded with chocolate chips and bursts of malt. Plus as an added bonus, if you make these for your husband, he will out of the blue decide to spend an entire day with you where you will do all sorts of lovely things.....

He will take you for a walk along the waterfront on a beautiful sunny day and then to a market where you can zig zag amongst the gazillion people there whilst eating your gypsy roll, drinking your alcoholic ginger beer and admiring all the pretty things.

(for those of you who don't know a gypsy roll is a skinless lamb sausage in a mountain bread wrap topped with strawberry chilli sauce....Best. Thing. Ever.)


 He will take you home and show you the pergola he has been slaving away building with the help of your Father. Then he will bring out bean bags and books and the two of you will curl up in the sun on your semi-completed pergola and read whilst occasionally posing for impromptu photos.

Then that night, you will go out for a lovely 3 course dinner, you will order a cocktail called 'Sexy Time' and the old couple at the table next to you will glare at you for the rest of the evening, but you won't care because it tastes awesome.

A fantastic time will be had by all.

And if not, at least you have these bars and you can just curl up on the couch and eat them all hot out of the pan....

For these Triple Chocolate Malt Bars you will need:

120g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tspn vanilla essence
1.5 cups plain flour
1/2 tspn baking powder
1.5 cups malt balls
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup caramel chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 180C and grease and line a 8x8 inch baking dish / slice tin.

Place butter and sugar in a microwave safe dish and heat in 40 second bursts until butter is melted. Stir to combine.

Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.

Stir through the flour and baking powder and stir until well combined.

Add the malt balls and chocolate chips.

Press the dough into the prepared dish / tin and bake for 35-40 mins or until golden in colour. Allow to cool in the tin for 15-20 mins before removing and allow to cool completely before slicing.
