An easy five ingredient no-bake fudge with milk chocolate, dark chocolate and Malteser’s – the perfect malteser fudge!
A delicious easy fudge that is so easy to make and shove into a tin and set – one of my favourites!
I recently re-made my no-bake 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.
I adore the honeycomb style crunch of the biscuit centre of the malteser, and it works wonderfully with the sweetness and texture of the fudge. Sometimes, the malteser can start to dissolve after a few days but you can’t prevent it.
I use either horlicks or ovaltine when making my malteser bakes and I am obsessed – it’s an optional ingredient to the fudge but it really does bring it to another level.
Easy fudge recipes
It’s very 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 such as my mars bar fudge, biscoff fudge and crunchie fudge to name a few. Honestly, I LOVE IT. And they are all based of a similar style recipe.. condensed milk fudge.
Condensed milk fudge is one of the easiest things you can make in the world, and theoretically all it contains is a tin of condensed milk and chocolate. How much chocolate you need depends on the flavour of chocolate you are using, and this recipe uses a bit of dark chocolate and milk chocolate combined.
For this fudge I decided to use dark chocolate and milk chocolate, but you can easily just use milk, or just use dark for example. I always bulk buy my chocolate so I use cooking chocolate, but you can use supermarket own basic confectionary chocolate easily and it makes it cheap to make.
I used to add in butter and icing sugar to my fudge recipes but I prefer it without – however, this one sets super well because of the malt powder. I don’t find that you need icing sugar as well anymore. (If you want the original recipe its in the notes of the recipe card)
I tend to add my chocolates and condensed milk to a bowl and then heat in short bursts in the microwave, making sure that the mixture doesn’t over heat. You can also do this in a pan on a low heat.
I then mix through the malt powder as quickly as possible, and then mix through the Maltesers. It’s a little bit of an arm work out, but it’s worth it.
Tips & Tricks
- I use a 9″ square tin for my fudge to make sure it sets at a good depth.
- You can set the fudge in the freezer to make it quicker, but I do find it best if this style of fudge is stored in the fridge
- You can use all dark chocolate (use 400g total) or all milk chocolate (still 500g)
- You can use all white chocolate but you will need 600g
- This fudge will last for 2+ weeks in the fridge, but can freeze for 3+ months in a container
- 397 g condensed milk (one tin)
- 250 g dark chocolate
- 250 g milk chocolate
- 75 g malt powder (horlicks/ovaltine)
- 200-300 g maltesers
- 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 large bowl and melt in the microwave in short bursts until melted stirring well.
- Alternately, add the ingredients to a pan and melt on a low heat until melted.
- 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 3-4 hours (Or preferably overnight) to set!
- Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares – and 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 all milk chocolate, or all dark chocolate if you wish, but its up to you
- 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.
