I feel like currently my blog is just revolving around things I’ve baked. I really wish I could put more posts up that are beauty, fashion or lifestyle related but I’m just not in the right frame of mind right now. However, baking remains as my favourite hobby, so I made these Malteser brownies for my boyfriend and his friends for Wrestlemania. I obviously used one of Jane’s Patisserie‘s recipes – when do I not – they just work so well and always tempt me into making them with how delicious they look in her photos! Unfortunately I decided to make these after the Malteser bunnies were sold out, but they still look delicious none the less.
Ingredients (makes 16 brownies):
- 200g Unsalted Butter (melted)
- 200g Dark Chocolate
- 3 Large Eggs
- 275g Caster Sugar
- 100g Plain Flour
- 25g Cocoa Powder
- 100g Malt Powder (I used Ovaltine)
- 300g Milk Chocolate Chips
- A jar (200g) of Malteser Spread
- 100g Melted Chocolate (I used Milk Chocolate)
- A handful of Maltesers (crushed)
You will need:
- A 9″ Square Baking Tin
- Two mixing bowls
- An electric whisk/hand whisk if you’re super strong
- A metal spoon for folding
- Something to crush your Maltesers with
- Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 4/180C/160C Fan and line your 9×9 baking tin with baking paper.
- Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in the microwave, taking it out and stirring occasionally until fully melted. Leave this to cool while you follow the next steps.
- Whisk the sugar and eggs together for a few minutes until they have doubled in volume. When you lift the whisks up out of the mixture and it leaves a trail for a few seconds, it’s done!
- Pour the cooled butter and chocolate mix over the sugar and eggs, and fold in carefully.
- When fully combined, fold in the flour, cocoa powder and malt powder carefully.
- Once that is fully combined, fold in the chocolate chips and then pour the mixture into the tin. Add dollops of the Malteser spread and swirl slightly.
- Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. After 30 minutes mine weren’t done, so I covered them in foil and baked for another 30 minutes. I then used Jane’s trick of taking them out after an hour and popping them in the fridge for an hour once cooled, to firm them up.
- When the brownie is cooled, use a piping bag to drizzle over the 100g of melted chocolate and sprinkle the crushed Maltesers over. When the chocolate is set, cut them into 16 pieces and enjoy your Malteser brownies!
I love making any type of brownies even though my oven doesn’t seem to like to bake them, they always smell great and they’re one of my bakes that always gets eaten. Malteser brownies have got to be one of the best brownies I’ve made, they look tasty and fun even from the outside. Maltesers are one of the best chocolates out there IMO, if you think so too check out the Malteser cheesecake and Malteser cupcakes that I made before.
