Chocolate Malteser pie

In a time when trick or treating is ON (and surely you do prefer treating!), we leave you a sweet recipe made with those amazing tasteful chocolate balls called Maltesers, which ultimately you can decorate with a few Halloween ideas, by decorating the maltesers or placing a sugar web on top, i.e..

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients: 450g Maltesers, plus extra for decorating; 110g unsalted butter, melted; 100g caster sugar; 4 egg yolks; 200g of dark chocolate, chopped up; 500 ml whole milk; 3 tbsp malt powder; 300ml double cream; 1tsp vanilla extract

How to do it:

  1. First, blitz the Maltesers in a food processor into crumbs. Add to the crumbs to the pan with the melted butter and mix. Pressed into a greased 26 cm pie tin, loose bottomed if you prefer, and push down evenly with a spatula or the back of a spoon until the bottom and sides are completely covered.

  2. Leave in the fridge to set whilst you make the filling. In a medium pan add the egg yolks, milk and malt powder and whisk over a low heat until thickened. Take off the heat and stir through the chocolate until it’s a smooth, silky consistency. Remove the pie shell from its tin at this point and place on a plate or board. Pour the chocolate filling into the pie case and keep in the fridge until serving, at least an hour but preferably overnight.

  3. Just before serving whip the double cream and vanilla together until stiff. Spoon over the chocolate filling, evenly covering the surface. Blitz with remaining Maltesers so some are fine and some are bigger and sprinkle over the top.
