Ever since making both Oreo and Toblerone cupcakes i've been a big fan of putting confectionary into cupcake recipes so imagine my excitement when I saw I heart cupcake's post about Malteser cupcakes. I heart cupcakes is one of my favourite blogs, Anne talks about all things cupcakes as well as posting delicious recipes, so i'd recommend you check it out!
I wasn't sure how to make them and since I wanted to take them to work and I was short on time I decided to make mini cupcakes. The recipe was for 12 normal sized cupcakes and I ended up making 55 mini cupcakes (but don't worry, they were all eaten!). The recipe called for 1 malteser per cupcake, but as I did mini's I put half. They pretty much melted in the oven but gave a lovely taste. Here they are fresh out of the oven (I love the colour of them!)...
Anne's recipe had called for both chocolate and vanilla frosting but as I was short of time I decided to just do vanilla. I crushed the Maltesers in my food processor but they weren't as crushed as I'd hoped. However, looking back i'm actually glad of this as I love how you can see the maltesers in the frosing. Here are a couple of photos of how they looked finished.
Sorry for the rubbish quality of the photo above! I was really happy with how they turned out - they tasted lovely and I love the malteser decoration. Ben told me they were the best ones i've made to date and everyone at worked scoffed on them! Thanks Anne for sharing this great recipe :)
