Malteser Biscuits (Whopper Cookies)


Do you like how I did the British/American title for this post?  I still have a hard time calling cookies biscuits.  Anyway, as I helped my girls put away their birthday presents (they are 5 years and a few days!), we noticed they had received 3 boxes and 2 bags of Maltesers.  I know, they are on special at the shop right now, I made the mistake of buying a bag myself (bringing the total to 6), just because they were only £1.  That was before the Malteser flood began.  So I turned to my handy friend--Internet, and went searching for a recipe to use some up.



Malteser Biscuits

  • 250g butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 165g packet Maltesers, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup plain flour, sifted
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 4 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer until pale. Add condensed milk and vanilla and beat for a further 1 minute.
  3. Add Maltesers and flours. Stir with a large metal spoon until well-combined. Roll mixture into small walnut-sized balls. Place onto prepared baking trays, allowing room for biscuits to spread.
  4. Gently press biscuits with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake, 2 trays at a time, for 12 to 15 minutes, swapping trays halfway through. Stand for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

    So the real question now is, how were they?
    I made 1/2 a recipe, because cookies do not last in my house and I did not want to be responsible for eating too many.  We took them on a picnic today and they are GOOD!  The kids loved them, I loved them.  I think I'll be making these again.  And again.  And again.  Until our supply is depleted.  Though I did see a recipe for Malteser cheesecake as well.  Trying to resist temptation..............

  4. Thanks for dropping by, glad I discovered your blog.

    This is an awesome recipe, nice twist to chocolate chips. I have the same issue with biscuits and cookies. I am used to calling cookies biscuits but slowly adopting.

I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
