These delicious Maltesers Brownies are easy to make and great served as a dessert with ice cream, or along side a cup of tea.
I love a good brownie. They are so easy to make, and you can make so many different flavours and varieties. Ultimately, of course, I also love eating them. Another thing I enjoy eating is Maltesers. Therefore, what better bake to make than Maltesers Brownies.
A few weekends ago, I needed to make a dessert as we had family coming for lunch. However, leaving it a little late to organise, i.e. a couple of hours before our dinner would be served, I decided that a brownie would be the way to go. Owing to there being some bags of Maltesers in my cupboard, left over from a birthday drip cake I had made a few days earlier. For this reason, it seemed a good idea to make these the main ingredient of my brownies.
There are Maltesers inside the batter as well, as on the top for decoration, therefore, making this a very decadent brownie indeed. No doubt making it extra delicious swell of course, afterall, you can never have too many Maltesers! According to my philosophy of course LOL!
Furthermore, these Maltesers Brownies tasted delicious! Even my OH, who is not always vocal in his praise for my baking, commented on how nice they were – as he reached for a second slice with his ice cream! Even my fussy eaters , aka my children, devoured one each! Actually, I think any chocolate lover will appreciate how good these brownies are.
These cakes will keep for a few days afterwards in an air tight tin or some tupperware. Unless, of course, you eat them much quicker than that!
All things considered, I was very pleased with how they turned out, and how successful they were considering their quick turn around.
Here is the recipe for my Maltesers Brownies:
- 225g unsalted butter, softened
- 300g caster sugar (I used 200g of Natvia sweetner plus 100g caster sugar)
- 4 eggs
- 50g crushed Maltesers
- 50g white chocolate
- 100g good quality dark chocolate
- 4 tbsp warm milk
- 100g self raising flour
- 100g cocoa powder
- 100g white chocolate, melted
- 121g grab bag Maltesers - crush some and keep some whole
- Preheat the oven to 180C/160C (fan)
- Grease and line a large rectangular or square cake tin (I used a lasagne dish) with non-stick baking parchment.
- In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
- Add the eggs and beat well
- In food processor add the chocolate (white and dark) and blitz to chop to make smaller pieces .
- Add the crushed Maltesers and chocolate into the butter and egg mixture and mix
- Add the milk and mix again
- Add the flour and cocoa powder and mix well
- Pour the brownie batter into the prepared tin and smooth over
- Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. The brownie should have a slight wobble and the top a slight crust
- Allow to cool in the tin completely, then place on a wire rack to cool.
- Drizzle over the white chocolate and then sprinkle crushed Maltesers and while ones for decoration.
- Cut into squares and enjoy
