Malteser Truffles

I am so excited to share this recipe with you! Malteser Truffles!!!

Malteser Truffles

This is such a great recipe, making the truffles is so simple and fun, plus the end taste and look is pretty awesome! I’m making these as gifts to put in my homemade hampers this year.

You will need (Makes 40 Small Truffles):

Shelf Life: These will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge 🙂

  • 100g Maltesers
  • 200g Malted Milk Biscuits
  • 1 Tin Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 75g Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder (plus extra for rolling)
  • 1 Pack Milky Way Magic Stars
  • 1 Can Gold Edible Lustre Spray or Edible Gold Paint Pot (available here)
  • Metallic Petit Four Cases

Maltesers and Malted Milk Biscuits

Start with your two main ingredients, Maltesers and Malted Milk Biscuits – there’s no baking or cooking in this recipe so no need to preheat any ovens! The most you’ll need is a food processor and a microwave for melting the butter.

Blend Maltesers and Biscuits

Throw the Maltesers and the Malted Milk Biscuits into a food processor and blend into crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, using the end of a rolling pin can work, it’s just a little bit fiddly when doing the Maltesers.

Fine Crumbs

You should be left with something that looks like the above, fine light coloured crumbs.

Condensed Milk

Next pour in a tin of sweetened condensed milk, I actually didn’t use the whole tin, I left about 2 tablespoons in the bottom, but this recipe would work great either way.

Malteser Truffle Mix

Mix the condensed milk in with a large wooden spoon, it will feel very thick and stuff but keep at it until it you have an even mix.

Cocoa Powder

You can now pour in the Cocoa Powder…

Melted Butter

…and melted butter.

Malteser Truffle Mix

Another good stir should give you a great looking sticky mixture! Simply transfer the mix to a small tub and pop in the fridge for an hour or two to become firm.

Milkyway Magic Star

You can make your Gold Stars for the topping while you wait for the mixture to set. Simply lay your stars out on some foil or cling film.

Next get your Gold Lustre Spray or Gold Edible Paint, this available online and in store from Iced Jems here: https://www.icedjemsshop.com/product-category/food-colours/all-food-colours/edible-paint-sprays/ !

Gold Chocolate Stars

Spray the Gold Lustre Spray over the Chocolate Stars until completely coated, it might take 2 attempts, and don’t worry if the spray looks like its bubbling / crackling, it’ll settle fine.

Rolling Truffles

Once the truffle mixture is firm, remove from the fridge and roll into small ball shapes. Make sure you roll them in cocoa powder, this stops them being too sticky and gives them extra flavour, roll in your palms to rub the cocoa powder in.

Malteser Truffle Cups

Place the Malteser Truffles into your Mini Confectionery Cups.

Gold Star Malteser Truffles

Then finish the truffles by placing a Gold Star on top and pressing down to secure.

    Hi, I always want to make edible gifts but am never sure when to make them. Surely they will go off in a few days? Do you need to make them on Christmas Eve, when already am super busy with other things? Or tell the recipient to eat them immediately? I am always unsure what to do. Thanks for any advice you can give. Vohn

    Hi Siobhan, I’ve made mine already for my xmas gifts! What I do is make them in advance, keep them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, then remove them from the fridge before I give them to the recipient, at which point I usually say to them eat within 2-3 days (which is never a problem with these as they go so quickly)! Hope all goes well in the run up to Christmas 🙂 x

    Hi, Do you think if I made these on Mon/Tues night they would be ok to serve on the Thurs? Got a charity day at work and they would be ideal!
    Thanks
