Munchylicious Maltesers Bars

Oh, what the heck, the waistline went boom during the Christmas holidays, it's too icy outside to go jogging, so you may as well let the Devil has his due and forget about dieting until the spring.

That's decided then. Now you can sit down with a cuppa and munch some of these delicious Maltesers bars without guilt.

A customer at the store passed this recipe to me before Christmas; I forgot to ask her name. If you are reading this and it was you, please leave a comment at the bottom of this post. Whoever you are, I have to thank you very much for this incredibly easy and tasty treat. here is how I made it.


  • 100g butter
  • 1 230g bar Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate
  • 1 300g pack McVities Digestive Biscuits
  • 1 carton Maltesers

  • In a double boiler (I use a glass bowl sitting in the rim of a pan of boiling water) melt the butter and the chocolate
  • Using the end of a rolling pin and a large mixing bowl, grind the digestive biscuits into crumbs
  • Stir in the melted chocolate and the Maltesers
  • Grease a cookie tray and pour in the mix
  • Flatten and lightly compress the mix and place in the refrigerator overnight

John's Notes
There are several difficulties that you will encounter with this recipe. I found the following challenges the most tricky:
  1. Be very careful not to eat any of the chocolate before preparing the recipe
  2. Be very careful not to eat any of the digestive biscuits before preparing the recipe
  3. Be very careful not to eat any of the finished Maltesers bars during the night after making them
If you can overcome these difficulties (and - please - don't underestimate the temptation) you will have a tray full of delicious Maltesers bars to eat the next day. Oh, and please be aware that Maltesers bars are entirely unsuitable for breakfast - try to wait at least until you have your mid-morning tea or coffee break

Finally, if you pop into Blighty's to buy the ingredients we will give you - absolutely free of charge - a tin cookie tray that you can use with this recipe (while stocks last).
