This week, the contestants on the Great British Bake Off were challenged to make a traybake, tuiles and a biscuit tower. As ever, the lovely Jenny from Mummy Mishaps and Helen from The Crazy Kitchen are asking us to make the same.
I love a good traybake and my Rocky Road recipe is regularly made by myself and many of my friends and family. However, I felt like doing something different and a Malteaser traybake sprang to mind. I love Malteasers but have never really used them in baking before. This is a really easy recipe and is something that older children could help out with, as long as they are supervised.
Double Chocolate Malteaser Traybake
- 50g unsalted butter
- 100g golden syrup
- 400g milk chocolate, in chunks
- 350g of Malteasers, (250g bashed into small pieces with rolling pin, 100g or so left whole for the top)
- 350g white chocolate, in chunks
- In a non-stick saucepan, melt the butter, golden syrup and milk chocolate together on a low heat, stirring constantly.
- Once melted, add in the crushed Malteasers and pour into a lined 28cm small roasting tin. Flatten out the top as much as you can and put in the fridge to set for about 6 hours.
- Once the milk chocolate layer has set, melt the white chocolate in a double boiler (heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water) and pour in an equal layer over the milk chocolate base. Flatten it as much as you can and put the whole Malteasers in the top to decorate any way you like.
- Put back in the fridge for a couple of hours to set then cut into small squares and serve. Eat and enjoy!
PS: I did attempt some mini fruit pies to enter last week’s challenge but there were an absolute disaster. Pastry is my number 1 guaranteed failure in the kitchen and it happened again!!!
