Easy Malteser (or just about any other sweet) cookies

Ever since I discovered a recipe for Smartie Biscuits at Living it Little I have been addicted to making these cookies. They are so easy to make and so versatile, you can make them with whatever type of sweet or chocolate bar you have around the house. I received a big box of Maltesers for my birthday last week, and so after a morning which started with a rather major meltdown (from the pre-schooler, not the toddler) I made a batch of Malteser cookies for some comfort food.

Unfortunately the link is no longer available online so I've reproduced it here. To make your own, here's all you need:

4oz softened butter (I put it in the microwave for a bit)
4oz light muscovado sugar
1 tbsp syrup
6oz self-raising flour

Sweets - Living it Little used two tubes of smarties, for Malteser cookies I used two (large) handfuls, bashed up a bit with a rolling pin. I've also used two double Twixes or two Crunchies cut up into small pieces.

Then you just cream the butter and sugar together and mix in all the other ingredients, probably using hands at the end to make a nice sticky dough. Make little balls on the baking tray (I find it makes about 20, depending on how much of the raw dough I have eaten) and cook at 180c for about ten minutes. When you take them out they will be a bit puffy, but when they have cooled they will sink down to nice flat, chewy cookies. Yum!

  1. Perfect end of day. You can eat the dough, eat the cookies, then finish with Maltesers.

  2. Ooh, they look good. I don't have any sweets though. Next time.


I love reading your comments!
