Ingredients

For the cake

  • 100g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 225g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
  • 225g Maltesers

 

For the toppings

  • 100g Maltesers
  • 50g white chocolate, melted
  • 50g milk chocolate, melted

Method

1. Grease a shallow 20cm, square cake tin with extra butter, and line the base and sides with non-stick baking paper

2. In a medium pan, melt together the measured butter, chocolate and syrup, stirring together until smooth. Add the crushed biscuits and stir until well coated in the chocolate mix. Add the Maltesers and stir together quickly so that the chocolate covering does not melt on the outside of the Maltesers.

3. Tip into the prepared tin, press into an even layer and chill until set.

4. Lift out of the tin, using the paper, and cut into small squares to serve.

5. Before cutting, sprinkle with some chopped Maltesers, and drizzle with alternate lines of melted white and melted milk chocolate.
