With my early schooling being in a British school, certain childhood memories are strongly influenced by the wonderful things my sister and I were introduced to. So when I was asked if I would introduce the 80+ year old brand, Maltesers, to my readers, I had to do a little dance for joy. Yes, this is a sponsored campaign but you can rest assured all opinions about the Maltesers brand are my own.
I fondly remember the countless number of times I’ve bitten into the chocolate outer covering to have my taste buds discover the wonderfully crispy honeycomb center and the delicious, creamy, aftertaste a Malteser chocolate ball leaves when it melts on your tongue…
mmmm, so good!
If you haven’t tried Maltesers, your palate is missing out big time!! Oh and after you skim through my Malteser Brownies recipe, you just may want to pick up a few extra boxes to make several batches of this decadent goodness. Too good not to share!

My Decadent Malteser Brownies Recipe
Last evening I asked the kids if they thought Maltesers in brownies would taste better or cookies and all three unanimously voted for brownies. I’m so glad I listened to them because the first batch turned out to be deeeeeelicious! (You know your recipe is a winner when your husband, who isn’t a fan of chocolate, mmmmed and said it was the best batch of brownies I’ve ever made.)
The marriage of crushed Maltesers and brownie batter is really the best!
I won’t tease you with any more photographs. Here’s the recipe, print it off, share it with friends, pop it onto your Pinterest board, do whatever you need to save this recipe.
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups crushed Maltesers
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line your 8x8 pan with parchment paper. (You can also apply/coat a thin layer of butter to the pan and dust flour over the same)
Take a bowl and gently whip the eggs in the same.
Add to the melted butter, the sugar and vanilla extract, and mix well
In a separate bowl, gently mix the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt)
Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and mix well
Now gently fold in 1 1/2 cups of crushed Maltesers
Pour this batter into the 8x8 pan and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of crushed Maltesers to the top
Bake for 30-35 minutes, till the top is crusted and an inserted toothpick when removed, comes out clean.
Serve hot with a dollop of vanilla icecream. Or as is!
I promise you won’t be making just one batch!
With the holidays coming up, this sweet treat will be a winner, so go stock up on a few boxes while the BOGO Maltesers offer lasts.
