The College Favourite Malteser Cake Recipe

During our A-Levels myself and my friends became fans of visiting the Starbucks cafĂ© in college. The malteser cake they sold became a firm favourite. I've since to got a recipe and it gives me something pretty close to the real deal that college sold us. Here is the recipe for the cake that brightened up those stressful days.

MAKES: 12-16 SQUARES                   PREP TIME: 30 MINS                  BAKE TIME: 1-2 HOURS COOLING

Line 20cm square baking tin with baking paper
Melt the butter, syrup, and chocolate in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (break the chocolate up small to help everything melt at a similar speed)
Place the biscuits and 35g maltesers in a sealed freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin until they become fine crumbs with chunks of malteser and biscuit.
Once almost melted, remove from heat and stir for two minutes
Allow to cool for about five minutes (but don't let it begin to set)
Add the crushed mixture and remaining whole maltesers to the chocolate mixture and stir
Press into the tin (be sure to spread it into the corners)
Melt the chocolate, butter and syrup over a pan of barely simmering water
Spread over the biscuit base
Place in the fridge to set for a couple of hours 
Hope you enjoy this delight as much as me and my friends have done!
