Malteser Fudge is a melt and mix recipe done in the microwave! With chocolate covered malt balls and soft fudge it is too easy!!
1 Slice tray
1 Spray oil
1 Baking paper/Parchment paper
1 Large heatproof jug
1 Soup Spoon to scrape the sweetened condensed milk from the jar
1 Chopstick to stir the melted chocolate mixture
- 500 grams milk chocolate Note 1
- 397 grams sweetened condensed millk Note 2
- 50 grams butter roughly chopped, Note 3
- 2 cups maltesers Note 4
Line a square tin (24cm x 5cm, 9" x 2") with baking/parchment paper, leaving a 1-2cm overhang on all 4 sides Note 5
In a large heatproof jug add milk chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Microwave on high for 2 mins, then remove and stir.
Return jug to the microwave for a further 1 minute. Then remove and stir.
Set aside approximately 10 Maltesers then add the rest to the wet fudge. Stir the Maltesers into the mix and then use a flat spoon to transfer this into the lined slice tray. Decorate the top of the fudge with the remaining Maltesers. Tap the slice tin gently a couple of times to remove any bubbles, then place in the fridge.
Allow to set for 1 hr or more. Then remove, pull fudge up and out of the tin and slice into pieces.
- Note 1 I recommend using cooking chocolate. You can use melts, bits, chips or a block broken into pieces. You can use the equivalent amount but white or dark chocolate instead if you want to.
- Note 2 This is one standard tin of sweetened condensed milk. It is thick and sticks to the tin, so use a spoon to scrap it all out into the heat proof jug.
- Note 3 Roughly chopping the butter into cubes simply makes it easier to work with. It will melt down and mix in with the other ingredients much easier, than is you use one big hunk of butter.
- Note 4 use a 185 gram share packet of Maltesers. Measured this is 2 cups. There is a larger share packet available which measures 280 grams, but I find this is too much as you want some Malteser texture and some fudge texture (balanced). We add most of these to the fudge, however, keep a few (10 ish) aside as you can push these into the top of the fudge, so you get the ball texture sticking up.
- Note 5 We use the overhang from the slice tin as this helps us pull the fudge up and out of the tin. Allow 1-2cm.
- Note regarding portion sizes: I cut the one big square into 4 smaller even squares, then I cut those into 9 squares each. This method results in 36 even, small 1-2 bite sizes of fudge.
