Preparation Time: Approximately 20 minutes
Cooking Time: Chill for about 1 hour in the fridge
Makes: 20 large-cut servings
Ingredients 280g bag Maltesers
400g Marie biscuits
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
180g white chocolate
Cut a piece of baking paper to fit a 20x20cm slice tin, leaving a length of the paper to hang over two sides. (This will make it easier to remove the finished slice).
Crush half of the Maltesers and all of the Marie biscuits and place into a bowl. If you haven't got a food processor, simply place the biscuits or Maltesers into a plastic freezer bag and crush using a rolling pin. Set aside.
Chop up butter and place into a small saucepan, along with the caster sugar and golden syrup.
Stir over medium heat until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Take the saucepan off the heat and add the cocoa powder, stirring until it is blended in.
Pour the butter mixture into the biscuit mixture and stir until they are combined.
Press the slice mixture firmly into the prepared tin.
Melt the white chocolate and pour it over the slice mixture, spreading evenly.
Crush the remaining Maltesers and sprinkle them over the white chocolate.
Place the tin in the fridge and chill for about one hour. When the slice is firm, remove it from the fridge and cut into large pieces.
This slice makes a lovely addition to a lazy afternoon tea, and will be appreciated by all who try it.
