Malteser and Mars Bar Slice

After a visit to Mr B's Step-Mum last week where she gave us a piece of this slice to have with our cup of tea there were no two ways around it - I HAD to make it this weekend.

For starters Mr B absolutely loved it......

Secondly, our whole family has been on a self induced Maltesers ban since that epic Maltesers Cake we made back in February for my Dad's birthday.....

And thirdly, I have been eyeing this recipe off for awhile now but wasn't sure if Mr B would be a big fan or if we were back on the Malteser bandwagon just that I knew the answer to both of those questions was a big fat yes the gloves were off and the chocolate was coming out!

This slice is certainly not cheap to make but it is an incredibly decadent treat that is easy to throw together. Plus because it's so rich (and more-ish!) I recommend cutting it into small slices which means if you can find some self control, it will last awhile.

Malteser and Mars Bar Slice

1 pack of Chocolate Ripple Biscuits (250g)
280g of Maltesers
4 Mars Bars (4 x 53g bars or 1 x bag of fun size Mars Bars)
1/2 cup Condensed Milk
100g unsalted butter
250g milk chocolate melts
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil

Line the base and sides of a square slice tin with baking paper.

Use a food processor to crush the biscuits to a fine crumb.

Use a food processor (or a rolling pin) to roughly crush 1 cup of the Maltesers (you want them to be a little chunky still)

Dice the Mars Bars into small pieces. I used fun size Mars Bars and just cut them into quarters.

In a small saucepan over a low heat melt the butter and condensed milk, stirring until combined.

Meanwhile, combine the Maltesers, Mars Bars and crushed biscuits in a large bowl. Pour over the melted butter and condensed milk and stir well.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and flatten with the back of a metal spoon. Place in the fridge for at least an hour until completely cooled.

Once the slice has cooled, place the milk chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat on medium-high in 30 second bursts, stirring in between each one, until smooth. Stir through the oil and pour the melted chocolate over the cooled slice. Decorate with remaining Maltesers.

Put the slice back into the fridge and cut into pieces before it has completely set.

And no that is not the result of too much Malteser and Mars Bar Slice (well OK maybe a little bit of it is...) .....this is 27 weeks of baby belly!

I cannot believe how quick the time is going (and how quick my belly is growing!!), but everything is going really well, I feel great and bub is healthy and happy so we can't ask for any more then that.

  1. This is genius! You had me at condensed milk. And cute bump!

  2. Ahh you made it over for a visit! I know right, I love that this recipe only uses 1/2 cup of condensed means the other half of the tin is in the fridge for convenient snacking!!
