Regretting the decision of hosting for Christmas this year? Impress your guests with this easy no bake Malteser pie, crammed full of chocolate it’s going to be an easy winner.
Based on my no bake Oreo Millionaire Pie recipe, this cheeky little dessert reminds me of the Celebration chocolate we all favour (unless that’s just me?). The crust is packed full of crushed Maltesers, whilst the creamy pie filling resembles the malt biscuit filling. It’s incredibly moreish you may even want to make two if you’re expecting a huge party…
Note: This dessert is best enjoyed on the day of making (prep time is less than an hour so make it in the morning then pop in the fridge to meet the setting time) and can be enjoyed for up to 2-3 days after.
Ingredients (makes one 26cm wide pie serving 10-12 people):
For the pie crust –
- 450g crushed Maltesers
- 110g unsalted butter, melted
For the filling –
- 225ml double cream
- 100g dark chocolate
- 4 tbsp Horlicks Malt drinking powder
- 1-2 tbsp icing sugar
- Crushed and whole Maltesers
- Gold sprinkles
- Grease a loose base flan/tart tin and add the melted butter and crushed Maltesers to a mixing bowl – stir until combined. Pour the mixture into the tin and spread across the bottom and sides of the tin with the back of a spoon or flat spatula (I often find it easier to do the sides first)
- Place the base into the fridge and allow to set as you begin to make the filling. Start by melting the dark chocolate in short bursts in the microwave and set aside to cool slightly. In a mixing bowl, whip the cream with an electric whisk until soft peaks form, add the Horlicks or Malt drinking powder along with the icing sugar and mix again for about 10 seconds
- Finish by pouring the chocolate into the cream, stirring until all is combined and you have a smooth, thick mixture. Take the biscuit base out of the fridge and cover with the chocolate cream filling, smoothing with a palette knife and placing back in the fridge for around 4 hours
- Once fully set, remove and decorate with crushed and whole Maltesers, gold sprinkles, cream and whatever else takes your fancy!
Happy Christmas, Nic x
