Recipe for Malteaser Tiffin (Fridge) Cake

A brief break in Holiday in Review posts. I haven't got my Dublin photos organised yet but wanted to post something :-)

While we were in Scotland I got this recipe from Graeme's Gran. I tried making it recently and it's amazing!

It is very sweet and even I (Queen of Sweet!) can't eat more than one piece at once. I took some to work and they loved it so much they all wanted the recipe.

Here's what it looked like in my baking tin....

And here's the recipe....


  • 100g margarine (I used butter and it worked fine)
  • 3 tbsp syrup
  • 150g milk cooking chocolate
  • 225g digestive biscuits, roughly crushed
  • 225g malteasers, halved or crushed
  • 400g white or milk cooking chocolate


  • Melt the first 3 ingredients, then add the biscuits and malteasers.
  • Mix well and spread over a swiss roll tin.
  • Cover either with melted white or milk chocolate.
  • When chocolate is set cut into squares.

My notes:

  • We couldn't find milk cooking chocolate at supermarket so it was standard plain cooking chocolate and it was yummy but the milk might go better with malteasers.
  • I put the tin in the fridge to set but kept checking on it and before the chocolate set hard I made cut lines which I think made it easier to cut up. It was a bit tricky getting the first bit out of the pan though!
  • 550g chocolate is a huge amount - we only got about 500g or just under and that was still plenty to give it a thick chocolate top.

Enjoy and do let me know what you think if you try it :-)

That looks so sinfully good!!! I might just have to try it :)

Is syrup meaning golden syrup?

Hey Katie

Thanks for your comment!! For the main quilt bit of the quilt I bought two charm packs from the fat quarter shop in the US. All the hard work was done for me!!

Let me know if you get started on one!

Hi Kelly - yep, golden syrup is what I used - worked like a charm :-)

klmpink - I definitely want to try quilting some time soon but I have some crochet and scrapbooking projects I should probably finish first!
