National Biscuit Day 2021 – Malteser Smash biscuit traybake recipe
TODAY is National Biscuit Day and to celebrate I’ve got two brilliant, biscuity delights. Both of these will last for a week or so in an airtight container, but you can also freeze them to grab whenever you fancy a nibble.
Now, go and make yourself a cuppa, you lovely lot – you deserve a biscuit or two!
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours
Makes 12 slices
YOU WILL NEED:
- 225g digestive biscuits
- 100g milk chocolate
- 100g dark chocolate
- 4tbsp golden syrup
- 115g butter
- 225g Maltesers, plus extra for decoration
For the topping:
- 80g dark chocolate
- 1tbsp milk
My top tip this week is to make sure you organise your freezer.
Every month or so, do a stock check of what’s in there so that you make sure you are eating the older stuff at the back of the freezer and then refilling with newer food.
- Line an 18 x 18 square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
- Place the digestives into a reusable plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush the biscuits until they are a fine crumb.
- In a large saucepan, melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter together over a low heat. Once melted, add in the biscuit crumbs, mix well, then add in the Maltesers.
- Pour the mix into your lined tin and leave to cool for 5 minutes before putting into the fridge to set for about 1 hour.
- Once the traybake has set, in a small bowl melt the chocolate and milk in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until you have a runny consistency.
- Using a spoon, drizzle the traybake with the chocolate and a few Maltesers for decoration and return to the fridge to set. Once the chocolate is hard, cut up your traybake and enjoy.
Ready to freeze:
Once cut up, simply store in a reusable, labelled freezer bag.
Ready to eat:
When you are ready to eat, take out as many slices at a time as you need and leave to defrost at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
