Malt biscuit base:

  • 200 g Malted milk biscuits
  • 100 g Unsalted butter

Chocolate ganache:

  • 200 g Dark chocolate (between 50-60% cocoa solids)
  • 120 ml Double cream

Salted caramel:

  • 150 g Unsalted butter
  • 30 g White caster sugar
  • 60 g Golden syrup
  • 1 tin Condensed milk (397g) I use Carnation
  • 1 tsp salt

Malteser chocolate topping:

  • 200 g Milk chocolate
  • 100 g Maltesers


Start by making the malt biscuit base

  • Line an 8inch/20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Use a rolling pin to crush up the biscuits into fine, sand-like crumbs.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave in 30-second blasts until it turns to liquid.
  • Add the crushed biscuits to the butter and stir together until coated in the melted butter.
  • Spoon into the baking tin and use the back of a spoon to press the biscuit base out into an even layer. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

Make the chocolate ganache

  • Finely chop the dark chocolate into very small chunks and place in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
  • Pour the double cream into a small saucepan and set over a low heat.
  • Stir continuously for roughly 3-4 minutes until the cream is piping hot and has started to bubble up.
  • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  • Take the baking tin out of the fridge. Pour on top of the biscuit base and spread out into an even layer.Return to the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

Now make the salted caramel

  • In a large saucepan combine the butter, sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk.
  • Place the saucepan over a low heat and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until the ingredients have melted into a smooth mixture.
  • Turn the heat up a little so that the mixture starts to bubble up. Keep stirring continuously for 5-6 minutes until the mixture thickens and turns golden in colour. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt.
  • Set aside and leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Pour the caramel on top of the ganache and spread out into an even layer. Return to the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

Make the chocolate topping

  • Chop the Maltesers into halves and set aside.
  • Break up the milk chocolate into a bowl and microwave in 30-second blasts until smooth.
  • Take the baking tin out of the fridge. Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel and spread out into an even layer.
  • Scatter the Maltesers on top and gently press them down into the chocolate. Return to the fridge (for the last time!) for 1 hour to set.

Time to slice!

  • Lift out of the baking tin and peel down the sides of the greaseproof paper.
  • Leave at room temperature for 15 minutes to soften the layers.
  • Run a large sharp knife until warm water for 30 seconds and dry with a towel (this will help slice through the layers). Cut into 16 slices and enjoy!
