  • Place the milk chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl and microwave on high for one minute. Stir well until all fully melted. Note: if the chocolate starts to seize, add a splash of milk and stir well. Leave to cool slightly.
  • Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Place a layer of shortbread fingers in the base of the loaf tin.
  • Mix the Maltesers into the chocolate mixture.
  • Spoon two thirds of the Malteser chocolate mixture over the shortbread in the tin.
  • Smooth the top, then add a second layer of shortbread fingers.
  • Add the rest of the Malteser mixture over the top, smooth with a spoon or spatula, then top with the Mlteser buttons.
  • Transfer to the fridge and chill until set. This will take approximately 2-3 hours (depends on the strength of your fridge and the outside temperature etc).
  • Once solid, slice up into chunks and enjoy! Best stored in the fridge in a covered container, especially in hot weather.



If your chocolate starts to seize after heating, add a little milk and stir well and it should become glossy and smooth again.
Check after 2-3 hours in the fridge to see if it has set. If not, leave for longer until set.
