16 marvellous Malteser recipes you need to try, right now

For most people, Maltesers are a year-round sweet. 

Each bubbly little bite is so ridiculously light that it’s far too easy to munch down a handful – or a box full – even after demolishing Christmas dinner, three different desserts and several brandy snaps. Maltesers are a chocolatey snack that can be eaten any time, any place, whether you’re feeling a little bit peckish or (think) you just can’t eat another bite. Trust us, you can.

Here are our favourite recipes from around the web. Have a scroll, try to find one that you can say no to. Because let’s face it, you always have room for ‘just one’.
