|Doodling Maltesers Traybake|
Most people know that the English call cookies, biscuits but a digestive biscuit?
Digestive biscuits turned out to be what we call a Graham cracker, developed in 1829 by Rev. Sylvester Graham using graham flour, a mix of whole grains, a healthy choice! I am not sure he knew people would develop such concoctions as the following in which we have to limit our indulgences due to our interest in our own health but thank you, Rev. Graham. Your crackers are the base of so many heavenly desserts!
And Maltesers? Just malt balls!
Personally, I prefer Brachs but my local grocery store does not know this so I use Whoppers.
Below you will find the original recipe as I found it and then I will give you my own version of the dessert.
200g milk chocolate
3 tablespoons golden syrup
225 finely crushed digestive biscuits
Melt together the butter, chocolate and syrup then add the crushed biscuits and the maltesers. Mix together quickly then pour into a square tin and chill until set. For a special occasion drizzle with some melted white chocolate. Cut into squares, pig out.
Doodling Maltesers Traybake:
Here is my conversion to this recipe:
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
3 T Lyle's Golden Syrup
Add the following ingredients:
- (I found this in my local grocery store on the very top shelf of the syrups. If you have a British section you may find it there. It has a hint of molasses and vanilla. If you can not find it you may use 2 T of white Karo syrup and 1 T molasses and then a 1/4 tsp. vanilla.)
15 graham cracker crushed(I am referring to the large unbroken crackers)
2 cups malt balls (This recipe said crushed but I left mine whole)
Stir together in a large bowl and then quickly put into a square pan and refrigerate.
Melt 1 pkg Ghirarbella classic white chips and pour over the top of the chocolate concoction.
