Red Nose Day: Malteser Biscuits

Red Nose Day is on Friday 24th March, which is a day where money is raised for Comic Relief by doing lots of fun things. Many celebrities get involved by doing fun activities to different challenges, you can buy Red Nose Day merchandise at TK Maxx and Sainsburys and of course the gang will be back on your TV on Friday night on BBC One at 7pm, we will be tuning in for sure and cannot wait to watch the Love Actually Comic Relief Special.

A great way to raise money is to bake goodies for charity, so we have come up with a fun things can bake with a Red Nose Day theme, you can also order a fundraising baking kit to help get you started here

bake a massive difference 

Malteser are doing a campaign where they aim to raise £1 million for Comic Relief, and for every bake uploaded to social media with the hashtag #bakeamillion before 24th March they will donate £5 towards the £1 million. We decided to take part and bake our favourite naughty treat ever that uses maltesers. This will also be uploaded to social media with the hashtag #bakeamillion
There are lots of other recipe ideas for baking with Maltesers on the RND website

For our signature Malteser biscuits to make them extra special we added a red M&M to the centre of each slice to look like a red nose!

For the biscuits:
100g dark chocolate
200g milk chocolate
3 tbsp golden syrup
100g unsalted butter
200g digestive biscuits
50g Maltesers
For the topping:
100g milk chocolate
100g dark chocolate
Red m&ms

1) For the biscuits melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in bowl over simmering water
2) Put the biscuits in a freezer and crush until you have crumbs, we also like a few larger chunks of biscuits too. Add the Maltesers and crush these slightly too, again we like to have a couple of whole Maltesers in the mixture too
3) Pour the biscuits and Maltesers into the melted chocolate mixture and stir
4) Press into a baking tray that has been greased with butter and lined with baking parchment
5) Melt the topping in the same bowl over simmering water and pour over the biscuits and leave to cool
