I really do love a good no bake treat! I especially love that there’s no fussing about making lots of faffy, individual portions. You just press it all into one giant tin then slice later. SO much quicker and easier!

Tips for making Malteser Tiffin Bars

Never made no bake tiffin before? It’s ok! I’m here to help…

  • Make sure you line the tin. It just makes life easier!
  • Give the tiffin mixture a really thorough mix to ensure everything is evenly coated and the bars properly stick together.
  • Be gentle when heating that white chocolate! Do more mixing than heating and you’ll run into to fewer potential problems.
  • Buy more Maltesers than you actually need. (You know you’re going to eat some along the way!)
  • Don’t try cutting until it’s completely set. Be patient here and you will be rewarded, I promise!
  • Substituting ingredients? Bear volume in mind, not weight. 20g of raisins will not equate to the same as 20g of super light Rice Krispies.

How to Make Malteser Tiffin Bars

(For a printer friendly version, see the recipe card at the end of this post)

Here is what you will need to make 20 slices.

  • 185g (6.5 oz) Maltesers
  • 250g (8.8 oz) Rich Tea Biscuits
  • 55g (2 Cups) Rice Krispies
  • 125g (1/2 Cup) Unsalted Butter
  • 1 x 395g (14 oz) Tin of Condensed Milk
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 200g (7 oz) White Chocolate
  • 1 tbsp Trex (Vegetable Fat/Shortening)

 

Essential Equipment

  • 30 x 20cm (12 x 8″) Rectangular Baking Tin
  • Food Processor

 

First, line the base & 2 sides of the tin with baking paper. Cut 20 Maltesers in half and set to one side. These will be used for decoration later.

Next, in a food processor, blitz the rich tea biscuits (250g | 8.8 oz) until they look a little something like this…

Then tip the biscuit crumbs into a large bowl along with the Rice Krispies (55g | 2 Cups) and remaining (whole) Maltesers (185g | 6.5 oz – minus 20 halved)

Meanwhile, in a saucepan set over a low heat, gently melt together the butter (125g | 1/2 Cup), condensed milk (1 x 395g | 14 oz tin) and cocoa powder (2 tbsp). Stir until smooth.

Now pour this gooey deliciousness over the dry ingredients & mix really well.

Time to firmly press the mixture into the prepared tin. I find it easiest to use the back of a metal spoon as it tends to stick less.

It’s topping time! Break the white chocolate (200g | 7 oz) into a glass bowl and add the trex (1 tbsp). Heat in 20 second intervals in the microwave, stirring well in between each time. (Or set over a pan of barely simmering water.)

Finally, pour over the top of the crunchy chocolate mixture and smooth out with a spoon.

Last but not least, press the halved Maltesers you ate set aside earlier into the top. (Space them out so you will get two per slice.)

Allow your Malteser tiffin to set in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours, overnight is best if you have the time. When it’s firm, slice into 20 pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. I mean, not that it will last that long!

And there you have it, told you it was easy! I have always had a soft spot for Maltesers. You can’t just have one can you? I saw a pretty fun game once that you can try with any ‘leftovers’. Pull out a measuring tape between two people & roll a Malteser down from one person into the other one’s mouth. See what the furthest distance you can get is!

    Think I will go whole hog and put whole Maltese’s on top!

    1. Miss KitchenMason says:

      Yes!! More Maltesers is never a bad thing 🙂 Emma x

  2. Jude says:

    Hi Emma,
    Thanks for this yummy recipe, going to try it out this week !
    Can I just ask, is it essential to add the trex ? It’s just that I don’t use it for anything, so would be buying it just for the 1 tablespoon to add to the chocolate. I’ve got some solid coconut oil, could I use that instead ?
    Many thanks
    Jude

    1. Miss KitchenMason says:

      Hi Jude, thank you for your lovely comment! Nope, you don’t have to use trex – you can use your coconut oil or even butter. Just some sort of fat 🙂 Emma x

  3. Stephanie Bawden says:

    Just to say 20 Maltesers are needed for decoration not 10, if you want as many as in the photoa. Also any tips for cutting Maltesers as they seem to fall apart – obviously not wasted as they were popped into my mouth!
    Also had trouble with chocolate seizing when I added the fat – any suggestions for prevention?
    Looking yummy though & made for my daughter’s bake sale at school on Monday – if they ever get there!! 🙂

    1. Miss KitchenMason says:

      That’s very true, good spot! I will get that changed. As for cutting them in half, it is a bit hit & miss I know. But like yourself, I just ate the duff ones!! With the seizing chocolate, try melting the chocolate & trex together instead of adding it afterwards. I’ve found that’s worked for me in the past. Hope they go down well at the bake sale… If they get there of course haha! Thank you so much for your comment 🙂
