I’m really, really late posting this particular recipe. Even though this fast and simple 3 Ingredient Maltesers Fudge can be made and served any time you want, I meant to have it out to you all by Easter, but sometimes, there’s other recipes that call out to me in the middle of the night. It’s true! They say things in a Harry Potter whisper-like fashion, which goes something like this: “Byron, hit publish now!” I’ve heard of giving life to your cooking, but come on, this is completely unnecessary!
I thought these would make a perfect Easter treat, because these candy-coated Maltesers are the epitome of Easter colours, but you can absolutely achieve the same taste and effect with regular chocolate Maltesers.
I’ve never been much of a fudge fan, because I tend to favour salty snacks over sweet, but these were fine even by my standards. Now, I must admit, most of this was eaten by John.e and McKenna, but I did indulge twice. A little sweet now and then won’t hurt, right?
If you are the type who loves sugary treats with a crunch factor, then this fudge is perfect for you! Not to mention how easy this is to make and how much fun kids will have helping you! I love having my daughter in the kitchen with me, but I never really get to do it that often. Even though she has an interest in food preparation, she’s at that stage where music and reading is more important, and really, who can argue with that!? A 13 year old who likes to read? Such a blessing!
Oh well, at least I can coax her out of her room with fudge. Daddy wins!
- 2 cups Maltesers
- 2 cups milk chocolate chunks
- 1 14 ounce can Eagle Brand condensed milk
- Begin by preparing a 9x9 inch baking pan - line the pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a double boiler, melt the milk chocolate and the condensed milk together until well incorporated and silky smooth.
- Remove from heat and pour in half of the Maltesers. With a spoon, stir to mix the Maltesers into the chocolate mixture.
- Working quickly, pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and use a spoon to push the fudge into place - get into the corners and flatten as much as possible without crushing the Maltesers.
- While the fudge is still hot, press the remaining Maltesers into the top of the fudge.
- Refrigerate for 4-6 hours before attempting to cut.
- Cut into small squares; store flat in a food safe container.
