Ingredients

  • 1 x 166g pouch Maltesers
  • 100g soft unsalted butter
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 170g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • 60g malted milk powder, such as Ovaltine or Horlicks

Step by step

Get ahead
Best eaten on the day they’re made, but will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line 2 trays with baking paper.
  2. Put the Maltesers into a sandwich or freezer bag and bash them a few times with a rolling pin, so you have a mix of larger broken chunks and crumbs.
  3. Put the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl and beat together until fluffy. Add the vanilla and the egg, and mix well to combine.
  4. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and malted milk powder into a separate bowl to combine, then add to the other mixture, mixing until it forms a dough. Mix in the Maltesers, taking care not crush the big chunks too much.
  5. Roll the dough into balls, about the size of a golf ball, and place onto the lined trays. Make sure you leave a decent gap between the cookies for them to spread. Bake for 10-14 minutes. Leave to cool for 5 minutes on the trays, then transfer to a cooling rack.
