Malteser Traybake

Malteser Traybake

I'd been wanting to give these a go for ages so when I won a big box of maltesers in a prize draw last weekend I thought this was the ideal opportunity.

By Beth Sachs

110g Butter
3 TBSP Syrup
120g Digestives
100g Ginger biscuits
220g Plain Chocolate
200g Maltesers
300g White Chocolate
10 Maltesers, crushed

Step 1: Grease a swiss roll tin
Step 2: Melt the plain chocolate, syrup and butter (I did this in the microwave)
Step 3: Stir in crushed biscuits and whole maltesers and press into swiss roll tin, leave to set
Step 4: Melt white chocolate and pour over base and sprinkle over crushed maltesers.
Step 5: Refrigerate for 30 minutes then cut into bars.


  1. I love maltesers and have heard they are very good for curing chicken pox. Wise choice of baking!

  2. Congrats!

    I've never had malteser, but I'd like to try it.

  3. I love malteser traybake and I recently tried this version and its really rich and yummy! Yours looks delish.

    I hope Lowen feels better soon ;o)


  4. I have never heard of a chicken pox party. Must just be a British thing. Could it be that they have them so that all the children get the pox early and then be done with it. I think that I was 7 years old when I got the chicken pox. I would have really loved it if my Mother would have made me something with Maltesers in it. Your traybake looks yummy!

  5. Maltsers are whoppers in the states, right? I'm so glad you posted this since I've got boxes leftover from my Tuesdays with Dorie baking assignment.
    Thank you so much for posting my five things I must eat in England. I don't think I'll get close to Cornwall-I'll be on a tour and I think we'll stick closely to London. We're traveling through Italy, Austria, France, and a bit of London and then heading to the Isle of Guernsey to see where my maiden name originated.

  6. I forgot to tell little Lowen to get well and for you to enjoy your break. If you're baking, I'm sure that you are.

  7. I have never had maltesers but these look scrumptious! Congrats on your award. Feel better Lowen.

  8. Mmm... I love Malteser traybake! Very nice with some glacé cherries added, too!

    Hope Lowen feels better soon, and isn't too itchy!

  9. poor thing with the chicken pox! poor mom having to stay home & bake sweets

  10. I've never seen these before - but they look delicious!!

  11. Congrats on the award and thanks for sharing! You are too too kind!!
    I have never heard of these but they look tasty!

  12. What a fab coincidnence. I had one of these from a sandwich shop in Newcastle yesterday and was thinking about recreating something similar at the weekend. Thanks for the recipe! And get well to Lowen. ( I remember having chickenpox at 4 and having all of the kids in the street shoved towards me so they would get it too)

  13. They sound super sweet, perfect for a sick little girl, I hope Lowen feels better soon.

    My mum used to do that with us too, purposely infect us. The reasoning being that you were better able to fight these diseases as a child, and build up your own resistance, rather than getting them later in life when they could be dangerous.

    I very much doubt they do it today, and certainly not here in the US that I know of anyway. Though it might stop all this over reliance on anti-biotics.

  14. Sorry you've got the chicken pox in the house! The bars look absolutely delicious--I have to try them soon.

    And thank you so much for the award!

  15. OH my gosh, those sound out of this world! thanks so much for sharing. I have tried Maltesers and they are very similar to our malted milk balls, or Whoppers.

    I do hope you're feeling better. I have heard of people intentionally exposing kids to chicken pox, here in the US. If I remember correctly it's much better to get them as children than as adults.

  16. Poor Lowen! But I am sure these helped! I have never heard of a malteser....are they a kind of malted biscuit?

    I have never had chicken pox! Had to get the vaccine at 25....

  17. Well, we're not really sure if it definitely was chicken pox now!!! The spots have not scabbed over?! Whatever it was its gone! Maybe it was a mild dose of it

    Maltesers are like the whoppers you get in the US I think! Light honeycomb centre wrapped in milk chocolate!

  18. Poor Lowen! I am sure the malteser cake helped :)

  19. This sounds so good. It looks rich and delicious - my kind of dessert. I am sorry about Lowen getting the chicken pox. No fun.

  20. My hubby would love this one of his favorite treats are maltesers... I must bookmark this to try out :)

  21. Traybake! What a great name! These look good... I am not a white chocolate fan but I am tempted to either try these as is or with something else melted on top....

    And no I have never heard of a Chicken Pox Party. :)

  22. this recipe looks from asia n i come across ur blog...may i ask? what kind of syrup did u use? thank u so much...:)

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
