If you love Maltesers you will love this easy no bake traybake! The Malteser Traybake is a chocolate fridge-set bake which is perfect for events and parties.
I have loved the new Marvellous Creations range by Cadbury and while I was making the Maltesers fridge tray bake the other day I had an idea. Why not using the marvellous creation bar as the milk chocolate as it would bring all the extra sweets with it. This what I created and it was awesome!
Easy to make Malteser Traybake
This easy to make Maltesers Traybake recipe is is only a few ingredients which satisfy you and your friends every time you make it. It’s a good melt most of the ingredients together, mix everything else in and pop in a fridge to set. It really is that easy. No matter what the event, I now tend to cut this up into small bite size pieces. If you leave them too big and they set hard it can be slightly harder to eat. Also more importantly they are rather sweet so a small bite size piece works really well too.
This fridge bake made with Maltesers so delicious and can be made ahead of time for events or parties.
Key tips have to include removing the no bake Malteser cake from the fridge after 40 minutes to slice up. This will make it so much easier to slice up. It will be easy to slice up as the chocolate will be setting so hold it’s cut up shape and not full apart. Pop it back in the fridge and when it’s completely set go over the cuts and it will slice super easily.
How to make the no bake Malteser Traybake
The no bake Maltesers slice is so easy. Take a look below for the full how to on how to make this delicious easy Maltesers traybake.
Place the butter, golden syrup and chocolate in a saucepan and melt together on a gentle heat, keep stirring. Take it off the heat when it’s all melted together.
For this version of the chocolate fridge bake I used the Cadbury Marvelous creations chocolate as it some delicious jelly beans, popping candy and other tasty things too. You don’t need use this bar but normal chocolate bars will work so well too.
Crush the digestives to crumbs (I use a rolling pin and hit the biscuits while they are in a bag to make the crumbs).
Mixed together with the digestive biscuits in to the melted chocolate mixture.
Mix in any other sweets you fancy at this point, along with the Maltesers. Be quick as the chocolate on the Maltesers will melt fast.
The chocolate fridge bake with Maltesers pushed in to the pan ready for the white chocolate. I love seeing the flecks of colour from the extra candy and sweets inside.
Melt the white chocolate and pour it over the top. (If you move it around too much when trying to spread it you can pick up a few crumbs of digestives which makes the little lumps you see here.) Pop it in the fridge.
After 40mins in the fridge take it out and slice it up. I would recommend making more bite size pieces. Definitely slice it up before it completely sets. Then pop back in the fridge. At this point decorate with all your favourite sprinkles.
I This is what the bottom side looked like when it had set – I love the colours so I had to share. For this version I had added some mini Smarties I had left over which gave the finished easy Maltesers traybake beautiful flecks of colour.

Malteser rocky road
This type of fridge traybake is like a Malteser rocky road. It builds up the best chocolate and biscuits and holds/ suspends the sweets and Maltesers. I love it I can eat this so much but it’s sweet enough that you have to take your time. Probably a good point of making it.
