Easy Condensed Milk Malt Chocolate Fudge full of Maltesers. Quick, Delicious, No Sugar Thermometers. My favourite Malteser Fudge recipe!

So like, its obvious that I like Fudge. I can’t keep up with the amount of Recipes I have on my blog for it now! I have all sorts like Mars Bar FudgeSpeculoos/Biscoff Cookie Butter Fudge and Honeycomb Crunchie Fudge to name a few. Honestly, I LOVE IT. I have always based it off of a recipe from Carnation but have adapted them to make them flavoured, and themed!

Sometimes in my fudge recipes, I like to use a little bit of butter to give it a yummy taste, but its not always necessary. You can also make condensed milk fudge with Icing Sugar for example, but I much prefer it without. I find its so yummy!

For this fudge I decided to use Dark and Milk Chocolate, but you can easily just use Milk, or just use Dark for example! I often find that using Dark Chocolate helps it set SO much better than Milk, or White, but the quantity of 400g to a tin of condensed milk is perfect. In this recipe I also used Malt Powder to make it a bit more ‘Malteser’ like. I have put notes below however on how to include a tub of Malteser Spread!

I recently re-made my No-Bake Chocolate Malteser Cheesecake and it was such a massive hit, along with my Malteser Cake, so I know you will all love this. Maltesers are a bit of a weird one for me, because I could easily eat another chocolate bar instead, but when I open a bag/box/anything of Maltesers, the box can easily just vanish into my stomach without me realising. They’re so moreish! This way, you get to enjoy Maltesers, without eat the whole batch in one.

You can easily swap the maltesers to whatever you like, and take out the Malt Powder if you wished. However, I love this fudge so its perfect to me. If the Fudge is a little squishy still, or its not setting, its probably got too hot, so you could try freezing it. Or, what I have done in the past is melt it back down and add 600ml of double cream, whip it together and make ice cream! Its heavenly. I hope you like this recipe as much as I did!

The Maltesers that are on the outsides that are cut into, do sort of hollow out after a while, but any that haven’t been cut will stay fine till eating! I tend to cut quite small pieces as fudge is naturally sweet, but you can easily make fudge slabs! You could use a fudge mix to top off brownies, or a rocky road for example… anything with fudge is DELICIOUS. Enjoy!

Malteser Fudge!

Category: Sweets
Type: Fudge
Keyword: Malteser
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 11 minutes
Servings: 45 Pieces
Author: Jane's Patisserie


  • 397 g Condensed Milk (one tin)
  • 250 g Dark Chocolate
  • 250 g Milk Chocolate
  • 75 g Malt Powder (horlicks/ovaltine)
  • 200-300 g Maltesers (3 bags)


  • Line a tin with parchment paper – I use a 9″ square in as it makes a nice depth of fudge!
  • Put the Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Condensed Milk into a heavy based saucepan – melt on a low heat, stiring often so that the chocolate doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn and so that all the ingredients mix together well. 
  • Or melt the two chocolates and Condensed Milk together carefully in the microwave/double boiler, and mix well till smooth.
  • Once melted, tip in the Malt Powder and combine well, it might take a bit of beating, but its worth it!
  • Fold through one or two of the bags of Maltesers, or more if you fancy, and then pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture. 
  • Sprinkle on the other bag of Maltesers and press into the top of the fudge and store in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours (Or preferably overnight) to set!
  • Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares – I cut my tray into small squares of fudge, about 1inch in size! Return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting if its still a little soft– ENJOY!


  • This recipe will last better in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks if it manages to last that long – you can also easily half or double the recipe, the setting times will just change slightly!
  • You can use the Maltesers Spread which I have used in a couple of recipe, but I would only use one per batch. Add it in, and take out 100g worth of either chocolate and mix it with the Chocolate & Condensed Milk in the pan.
  • You can use all Milk Chocolate, or all Dark Chocolate if you wish, but its up to you!
  • Using icing sugar is optional - but without I would use 50g more chocolate!
  • The original recipe was: 397g condensed milk, 200g dark chocolate, 200g milk chocolate, 75g malt powder, 75g icing sugar, 200-300g maltesers in a 7x10" tin.

    Hi Jane

    I’d love to try this out. 😊

    However I’m just a bit confused, which Maltesers fudge recipe should I use, the one in the book or the one on this website?

    Just want to make sure I get it right.

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 6, 2022 at 3:13 pm

      Hiya! Either is fine, the outcome is the same! Hope this helps! x

  2. Mikki Beresford on August 31, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    Can you do this recipe with nestle crunch bar? I am going to a bbq this Saturday and would love to incorporate Nestle crunch into a fudge recipe 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 1, 2022 at 3:11 pm

      Hiya! I personally have not tried this – however it is definitely worth a go! Let me know how it turns out! x

  3. Rebecca on January 31, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    Followed three times and chocolate seized and split every time. Don’t know what I’m doing tried three different melting methods and nothing works

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 3, 2022 at 12:59 pm

      Hiya! What chocolate are you using? x

  4. Tracey on August 19, 2021 at 3:22 am

    I am making both Malteaser and Bailey’s fudge as wedding favours. Worried in case they become too soft if it’s a warm day. I should imagine Bailey’s fudge is fine to freeze overnight before the wedding, but what about the Malteaser fudge? I have done a test run already- delicious. Thank you

    Made these last night to take to BBQ today and it is like a mousse no where near set and have had 18hrs in the fridge help what have I done!

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 2, 2021 at 9:32 am

      Did you use evaporated milk or light condensed milk by accident? I have no idea how it can have a mousse texture with the correct ingredients used!

  6. Michelle smith on December 9, 2020 at 10:49 am

    Hi. Please can you tell me if you can freeze the fudge?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 9, 2020 at 10:51 am

      You can, but the Maltesers will dissolve slightly if they are exposed to the freezer! X

  7. Sophia on December 7, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Hi, I am going to make some fudge for my mum for Christmas and as she loves ferrero rochers I was wondering if instead of the malteasers I could swap them for the ferrero rochers instead. Would this still work as I wouldn’t add the malt powder?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 7, 2020 at 8:25 pm

      The malt powder definitely makes it set better, so without I would use 250g milk chocolate and 250g dark chocolate, but then use the Ferrero would work! x

  8. Sal on July 2, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    How could you add this to brownies s as a topping. Do you add, then refrigerate the brownies and then cut them when fudge almost sets.

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 2, 2020 at 7:33 pm

      Hey – yes I would add it on top and let them set together!

  9. Liz on June 12, 2020 at 9:07 am

    Hi Jane I really want to try one of your fudge recipes but I’ve been struggling to get hold of condensed milk. I’ve managed to get light condensed milk, have you ever tried it as I wonder if it would still set the same?
    Now I just need to choose which one to make 😃

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 12, 2020 at 10:04 am

      Hey! Sometimes light condensed milk can make it set a bit softer, but otherwise it should be fine!! xx

    Loved this. Have made the crunchie and biscoff too. Would love you to do a coffee/cappaccino fudge using the dairy milk chic a latte bar.

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 6, 2020 at 8:26 pm

      Ahh thank you! And I shall add that to my list! x

  11. hollie on May 6, 2020 at 9:44 am

    used this recipe yesterday and my fudge still hasn’t set this morning, I have looked back over the ingredients and I have seen I used evaporated milk instead of condensed. would this be why?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 6, 2020 at 9:55 am

      Yep, that’s why. They’re completely different ingredients, unfortunately!

  12. Rachel on May 4, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    I’m lactose intolerant and have the other things covered substitute wise, but can I use the condensed sweetened coconut milk in place of normal condensed milk on all fudge recipes?!

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 4, 2020 at 7:23 pm

      In all honesty I’m not 100% sure. It can definitely depend on what chocolate you use, and what other ingredients are the substitutes. Sometimes, it may require a bit more chocolate to help it set! x

    Made this today, blown away it was so easy. Taking to work to share with all my colleagues in the care home. Trying to keep everyone happy at such a stressful time, your recipes go down very well

    I made this for the first time tonight & looking forward to tasting it. When I mixed in the maltesers though I noted the chocolate melted off them so I had a few bald maltesers poking through the top of my fudge. Anyone else had this?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 25, 2020 at 8:02 pm

      That means the fudge mixture was a little too hot is all!

  15. Karon Reynolds on January 25, 2020 at 4:33 pm

    Can you use the caramel condensed milk? Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 25, 2020 at 7:14 pm

      It leads to a softer fudge, so generally only use it when I need to!

    tried this for the first today and they look so good! My malt powder went a bit lumpy though and the malteasers lost their choc covering! Should I have taken off the heat once the choc was melted?? I kept on the heat until I poured in the tin??

    Just tried this today! Can’t wait to see what it turns out like as it’s my first time making fudge.. on the step where you beat in the malt powder and icing sugar, can you use a hand mixer or does it have to be done by hand? Many thanks and much love for you whole blog!

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 2, 2018 at 4:01 pm

      I’ve always done it by hand, but I don’t see why a mixer won’t work?! x

  18. Mark charlton on October 20, 2017 at 12:41 am

    I have made this a few times now but my malteaser s alway go chewie very fast any help?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 20, 2017 at 8:25 am

      I’m afraid they will turn chewy as they’re being stored in the fridge. Usually the bits cut open from slicing the fudge go first, any that aren’t cut open last longer.

    • Zoe Clift on November 28, 2021 at 9:07 am

      Hi, how much malteser spread would you use instead of actual maltesers or if you did half and half, thanks

  19. Craig Smith on September 17, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    This recipe is great and so easy to make – eve I can do it! I’m just starting to make my fourth batch in about 4 weeks! I haven’t eaten it all myself (haha) I’m putting it in a nice box and giving as a birthday present. Thank you for sharing the recipe ?

  20. christina demetriou on June 20, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    Hi , can i ask is the malted powder easy to get hold of ? ive only ever seen it in form of a drink like malted milk powder which u add water to. Or can i buy from somewhere in specific in its own form?

    I live in uk if this helps.

    Many thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 20, 2017 at 5:10 pm

      Yep, use that one. I use Horlicks which you add milk to ?

    • christina demetriou on June 21, 2017 at 1:16 am

      Thankyou so much x

  21. Sajeda on June 6, 2017 at 5:36 am

    Hi I can’t wait to try out this recipe! Can you please tell me what is malt powder? Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 6, 2017 at 3:47 pm

      It makes like a Malt Drink? Like Ovaltine, or Horlicks!

  22. Lisa Woods on May 26, 2017 at 11:05 pm

    this looks epic. I am trying to be good but I will definitely be trying this as a treat at some point.
