Malteser cupcakes

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 :)


  1. They sound and look totally scrumptious x

  2. Those look amazing!! Thanks ever so much for trying them out. The two frostings is a bit too much of a faff, I doubt I'd do it often!
    Love the idea of mini ones - I think I shall make some for work :)
    And thanks for your kind words about my blog, its so nice to hear people enjoy it!
    did you watch the Great British Bake Off tonight?

  3. No problem - I love all your posts, especially ones about all the kitchen finds :)
    I completely forgot about it but i'll try and catch it on the iplayer this week!
    I will certainly make these again - I might try normal sized ones next time, though I love the minis :)

  4. These are great Leanne, I agree with Ben, they look like your best to date! I love doing mini malteser ones, the malteser is the perfect sized edible topper! I like the way you can see the malteser flecks in the frosting too! Glad you're back on the baking bandwagon!

  5. P.S. I thought you might be interested to know Im doing a giveaway on my blog. There are some great baking items on the website the voucher is for. I want it!

  6. Wow these look absolutely amazing. I was thinking of trying them too after reading about it on I heart cupcakes but haven't time recently. Cant wait to try them now in the mini version like yours. Perfect :)

  7. @Heaven is a cupcake: Thank you :) I will enter your competition shortly

    @Gem: Glad you like them :) I've decided i'm definately going to buy Primrose - I need those lemon cupcakes in my life!

    @Baking addict: Thank you :) I'd really recommend the recipe, it was easy to make and they tasted amazing!

  8. They look so cute! What could be better than a Malteser topper?

  9. Your cupcakes look so adorable! The photographs aren't bad at all...they are very cute actually

  10. We made these too! Great recipe from Anne as always :) Leanne: can I send you some info on Cupcake Camp London? Where should I send it to?
