Homemade Mega Malteasers

I love re-creating classic sweets from my childhood, and I've always wanted to make Malteasers. After a lot of trial and error, I’ve come up with a great recipe, and it only has three ingredients! Use whichever chocolate you like as a coating - personally I love dark chocolate (to offset the sweet center), but if you want the more authentic Malteaser taste, use milk chocolate instead.

I used a quick-release ice cube mould, which I found in my local supermarket (Tesco). Other ice cube trays/silicone moulds should work well though.

Makes 24


  • 150g dark (or milk) chocolate
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 50g malted milk powder (e.g. Horlicks)


1. Melt 75g of the dark chocolate in a microwave in short 30 second bursts. When the chocolate has mostly melted, stir to fully melt and add 25g of dark/milk chocolate, one chunk at a time. This acts to temper the chocolate, giving it a lovely shine and texture.

2. Spread the chocolate on the insides and bottom of the ice cube tray. Place in the fridge to set.

3. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave in short bursts of around 20 seconds. Once melted, add the malted milk powder and stir. The mixture will look very powdery at first but keep going until you can compress the mixture into balls.

4. Fill the chocolate shells in the ice cube tray with the malteaser filling.

5. Melt the remaining 50g dark/milk chocolate and pour over the top of the malteasers. Place in the freezer to set – this will take about 5-10 minutes.

6. Pop out and enjoy!

The Malteasers will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
