Malteser Biscuits

Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend. We spent Saturday tidying up our patio as our new paving is now complete (will post ‘after’ photos once I get my new pot plants) and yesterday I made a batch of Malteser Biscuits (recipe below). The flowers on my desk Double Delight roses which are blooming beautifully in our garden at the moment. It is so nice to be able to pick fresh flowers every few days to brighten up our house and these ones have the most beautiful fragrance too. Hope everyone enjoys their start to the week…

Malteser Biscuits

250g butter, softened
⅓ cup white sugar
⅓ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
165g packet Maltesers, roughly chopped
2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
½ cup plain flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line baking trays with baking paper. Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer until pale. Add condensed milk and vanilla and beat for a further 1 minute. Add Maltesers and flours. Stir with a large metal spoon until well-combined. Roll mixture into small walnut-sized balls. Place onto prepared baking trays, allowing room for biscuits to spread. Gently press biscuits with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake 2 trays at a time, for 12 to 15 minutes, swapping trays halfway through. Stand for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.


  1. Yum, they sound great - I love Maltesers! I will try that soon as I am in a bit of a cooking phase. I tried the raspberry melting moments you posted and they were great. I made some with orange flavour and yesterday made good old lemon ones.
    I am also a fan of Double Delight roses - the scent is amazing.
    Looking forward to the patio piccys.

  2. Wow, those roses are amazing. I love fresh flowers too. Nice biccies!

  3. Malteser biscuits! I'm so making those when I get back home. Great picture too.


  4. I'm giving this recipe straight to my husband (he's the cook around here) - they look so delicious. Isn't it the most wonderful thing to be able to pick your own flowers, especially beautiful roses - I can almost smell them here! Leigh

  5. Wowee those roses are stunning. Shame i don't have enough sunshine in my garden for roses !! x

  6. They sound so good, condensed milk in anything is pretty darn good! I love your roses too, beautiful colours! Oh and thank you so much for your email about the photographs Amanda, I've been meaning to write back! I will definitely give your suggestion a try!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - it really makes my day!!
