Malteser Cookie Slice

malteser cookie slice featureThe plan was to start lowering the sugar levels but I’m finding that a little difficult when there’s still SO MUCH Easter chocolate in our house. I’ve got to use it up some how so I’m  taking stock of the chocolate overwhelm and baking it out, hehehe, I really need a whole lot of coaxing! So I’ve made a start with a Malteser Cookie Slice.

If you’re one of my FB followers you’ll know there were 2 video clips in the lead up to this post and I wouldn’t have been able to do them without my handy camera man Blake, special thanks dude!!

We had a full gift box of Maltesers in the cupboard (not that you’re going to need a full box, unless of course you’re like me and choose to eat a third of its contents while baking this slice!) see why I need to get rid of this excess chocolate! And I used up a lindt bunny in the icing (making a small dent in our collection).

If it’s here (the chocolate), I know it’s here and I DO EAT IT!!!! I wonder if the op shop ever gets offerings of excess Easter chocolate? Perhaps I should check this week?

Anyway back to the slice. It really is so delicious, it’s cakey but still slicey (if that makes sense), so easy to make, and very addictive, isn’t anything with Maltesers?  One bowl is all you’re going to need to mix it up. Finish it off with some milk chocolate cream cheese icing (so good  but totally optional) spread over the top. If you choose the no icing option I’d at least drizzle some melted chocolate over the top.

All my taste testers gave it the thumbs up, just check out the youngest of them all…..

She wasn’t up late enough to try it with icing so she got a sneaky taste off the end. How could I not? Especially when she ate all her dinner including the vegetables!

Recipe type: Slices
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • ½ cup plain flour, sifted
  • ½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 250g butter, melted, slightly cooled
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 150g maltesers (approx. 1½ cups), roughly chopped + 24 extra for decorating.
  • ICING
  • 250g cream cheese
  • ½ cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 100 milk chocolate (which for me was 1 lindt bunny), melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160C fan-forced (170C standard)
  2. Line a 18cm x 28cm x 3cm slice tin.
  3. Combine flours and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add melted butter, vanilla and egg to dry mixture and mix well to combine.
  5. Add chopped maltesers and work them through wet mixture evenly.
  6. Press and spread mixture into tin.
  7. Bake 30 mins or until lightly golden.
  8. Cool in tin and ice.
  9. ICING
  10. Beat cream cheese with icing sugar until well combined and smooth.
  11. Fold through melted, milk chocolate (I melted in microwave safe container using 3 x 30 second rounds, stirring in between, alternatively you can use double boiler stove top method)
  12. Spread over cooled slice.
  13. Finish off by placing the extra maltesers over the top of slice.
  14. Cut into squares.
  15. Store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 5 days.

Do you still have leftover chocolate at your place? I’m thinking ours will probably go out of date before we can get through it all (hopefully the op shop helps me out, just don’t tell the kidlets). I’m planning to make a stand and tell all my family there’s a chocolate ban next year, The Easter bunny will be the only one bringing chocolate to this little family next year.

PS – If you’re after some more Malteser fun may I also suggest taking a peek at my Triple M Slice and Triple Choc Malteser Balls.

Until the next time……

  3. This looks so good Dannielle! We have a major overstock of chocolate at the moment too, so tonight I’m baking a chocolate mudcake laced with Easter eggs, for my daughter’s party tomorrow. It’s going to be sugar overload 🙂

      Thanks Lisa. Oh I’m so glad we’re not the only ones with chocolate overstocks! I even found a stray box of Maltesers in our garage tonight, need to ask Zadada what’s going on there????
      Your mudcake sounds sooooo delicious, Happy Birthday wishes being sent to your Daughter! Enjoy 🙂

    We have heaps of easter chocolate left over but that’s normal for us. We usually polish it just before Christmas.

      I know how good are they Jess!? And so addictive!!!!!
      I’d say we’ll still be going close to Christmas too with all our chocolate treasures.
      Have a great week!

  6. Fabulous idea, now can you please write a recipe for all of us crazies who made the Kit Kat cake and have HEAPS of Kit Kat chocolate bars leftover in the fridge? I bet it will be viewed by heaps of people, I’ll share. As special request from Em @ Have A Laugh On Me. Feel free to tell me stuff off lovely xxxx

      Thanks Em!
      I would never tell you to stuff off and I love, love ,love that you’ve given me inspiration for a blog post. If you’re in a hurry to get rid of those Kit Kats may I suggest making my Chewy Gooey Slice http://zamamabakes.com/chewy-gooey-easter-egg-slice/ and instead of using mars bar Easter eggs, push your chopped up Kit Kats into it, I guarantee deliciousness! xx

      1. I wish I saw this Kit Kat recipe after Miss T’s birthday in February. I ended up eating all the excess Kit Kat fingers and now I can’t look at another Kit Kat!!! This slice looks delicious – I’ll take any excuse to buy some Maltesers. And eating some while you are making the slice is a mandatory action in my book 🙂

          Hehehehe, there are limits aren’t there Tash! Our eyes are somethimes to big for our tummies. As long as you enjoyed those Kit Kats while you were eating them that’s what really counts 😉
          And Maltesers, they are so dangerously addictive it’s not funny! Thanks for stopping by Tash, have a great weekend. xx

  7. If only we had some leftover chocolate! We only had 2 small bunnies and 2 tiny eggs – the downside of having a dairy and soy intolerant toddler 🙁

  9. Oh my Gosh! How good does that milk chocolate cream icing look. Yummo!!! I’m very lucky that my husband is a chocoholic and he’s been mowing through all of the Easter eggs. I can’t wait until it’s gone, gone, gone 🙂 x

      Hehehehe, love your description of your husband ‘Mowing’ through the Easter Eggs!
      Oh it does need to be gone doesn’t it but I don’t think I could just throw it out, I need a mower too! 🙂

      These things kind of just evolve, I look at a few recipes and sometimes a little idea just pops in my head! What about you, how do you come up with all your amazing ideas?!

  11. Sounds awesome! I think it’s amazing when people can just create a recipe and it work out. I’m so not able to do that!

      Thanks Becky.
      I can’t always just create a recipe, sometimes I get lucky. A lot of the time I’ll use a recipe as my inspiration and tweak a few things or just share a great recipe I think everyone should know about.
      Have a great weekend ahead.

      Kaz I’m glad to hear you still have chocolate left too. Good for you being so responsible hehehehe, love it! Enjoy the slice.

  14. Yum! Only problem is I am not sure the Maltesers would last long enough to go into the mixing bowl. They are the one chocolate I could not possibly resist!
