Hopefully I’m not too late with my edition for this years Red Nose Day’s #BakeAMillion !
I’m sure you’ve been seeing the ads & recipes celebrating this fantastic cause- if you’re unfamiliar with Red Nose Day, are a UK charity that works with numerous projects in the UK & Africa. This year, with Maltesers, Red Nose Day will donate £5 for every Maltesers themed bake- hopefully to the 1 million mark!
From cookies to cakes, bars to brownies the possibilities are endless haha! But today I wanted to try my hand at the ‘Ultimate’ or ‘Falling Maltesers’ cake- just on a smaller scale.. I hope you enjoy this little experimental bake post and do your own #BakeAMillion too! 🙂
So of course I had to bake something for this great cause, which worked out perfectly as I’ve been wanting to try a new cookie recipe so today we are combining (no pun intended..) to two 🙂
– Maltesers Chocolate Chip Cookies | #BakeAMillion –
These original recipe was a plain chocolate chip version, but as always I’ve had to add a few little touches to it hehee!
Y O U W I L L N E E D :
125g softened butter / 100 light brown sugar / 2 tbsp golden syrup / 1 tbsp vanilla / 106 g self-raising flour / 100 g chopped dark chocolate / 2 packets maltesers
M E T H O D :
1. Pre heat the oven to 170 Fan / Gas Mark 3 & line 2 large baking trays
2. Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy, add in the syrup and vanilla mixing well
3. Mix in the flour until combined- add in the chopped dark choc and 1 packet of the maltesers, crush them in the packet before adding. Mix well!
4. Place 6 large spoonfuls of the mixture between the trays, makes aprox 8-10 depending of size. Bake for 10-12 mins checking after 10, once golden brown transfer (still on the baking paper) to cooling racks
5. While the cookies are still hot place 4-5 maltesers onto each cookie, after a few second press the down to melt in.
6. When cool, finish (optional) with a drizzle of melted chocolate and/or a dusting of icing sugar-
serve & enjoy 🙂
As these don’t have eggs in I was unsure what the texture would be, but they work really well; much more of a chewy texture rather than a sponge-like one with eggs. They do have a slight caramel taste- make sure to watch these as they bake as some of my smaller ones caught slightly!
The malt from the crushed maltesers gives a alight creaminess to the mixture, of course you can leave them out and add in more chocolate chunks or anything type of chocolate!
Not sure if this is my favourite cookie recipe, but one I shall keep in my recipe book for sure! These are really quick to make and I do hope you give these ago and bake for the #BakeAMillion cause this year. If you have already do let me know what you’ve baked 🙂
