I’m off to a 3 year old’s birthday party tomorrow. What better way to get the children running wild than taking along my Malteser Cake! It’s definitely a crowd pleaser!
The parents may not be pleased with you though, unless they have had a piece too!
The beauty of Malteser Cake is that it is so quick and easy to whip up. Technically it’s not a cake, but who’s really bothered when it tastes so good! And trust me it does!
Just crush 200g/8oz of Maltesers and 200g/8oz digestive biscuits in a bowl. Do not over crush – leave some larger pieces of biscuit and some whole Maltesers.
Then melt 100g/4oz butter, 250g/9oz milk chocolate and 6 tbsp golden syrup in a heavy based saucepan.
Then combine the melted chocolate mixture with the crushed Maltesers and biscuits. Mix thoroughly.
Tip into a lightly greased tin. Flatten out the mixture.
Chill until firm and then cut. Makes about 16 squares.

To change the recipe slightly you could substitute in other delights. For example marshmallows, chocolate honeycomb or white chocolate.
BEWARE Once you have made these your guests will not stop hounding you for the recipe or you will be inundated with requests to whip up a batch of these and bring them to the next party. This includes grown up parties too!
