Maltesers why are you SO good! I love baking with these malt chocolate balls of amazingness, and in brownies they are simply exceptional. It will make you wonder why on earth you haven’t tried it before. These brownies are super gooey in the middle, fudgy on the outside and packed with surprising crunchy bites of malt surrounded by the melted milk chocolate from the Maltesers.
Seriously, what is there not to love?
Ingredients (makes 9 large/ 12 small brownies)
150g unsalted butter, at room temperature
170g 70% dark chocolate
225g caster sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
150g self-raising flour
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and base line a 23x23cm square tin with baking paper.
Gently melt the butter and chocolate in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, remove from the heat and leave on to cool.
In a separate bowl whisk together the sugar and eggs until frothy. Pour in the melted chocolate and the flour and fold together until you have a thick chocolate mixture. Now fold in the Maltesers and pour the mixture into the prepared tin, smoothing it out with a knife.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 17-20 minutes or until the edges are starting to crack and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out almost clean. Cool completely, before cutting and serving. I love these brownies warmed up in the microwave with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream…. absolute heaven!
