I can almost hear the crunchy sound of biting into one of these maltesers just by looking at them. At my work we have a cake giving occasion anytime someone experiences something new or big in their private lives. So a colleague of mine had promised to give the others cake because it was his birthday. But he was like we always have the same type of cake so I asked if I should make some cupcakes in his name? Well he was thrilled and I made these also Double Chocolate with maltesers which received a lot of praise :-).
I used my favourite double chocolate decadence recipe and topped it off with nougat-buttercream frosting and a piece of malteser on top of each.
For the frosting:
*150g soft nougat
*250g unsalted butter
*350g icing sugar
*2 tbs bitter sweet cocoa powder
*1 tbs milk or heavy cream
*maltesers for decoration
In a mixing bowl beat butter and nougat until well combined then gradually add icing sugar and then the cocoa powder. Whisk until all are well combined. Check for the thickness before adding the cream or milk. The cakes are ready to be frosted enjoy 🙂
