Malteser Cupcakes Recipe

Malteser Cupcakes Recipe

Before you dismiss these cupcakes as being ho-hum cupcakes with maltesers on top let me assure you there is a whole LOT more to these than the decorations on top! They also have malted milk in the batter AND crushed maltesers in the frosting. These are so quick and easy to make and so moist and full of malteser flavour. I wasn’t even a fan of maltesers until I made these and tried them and now these are one of my new favorites!

Perfect for the little kids and the big ones in your life. And made with love. xx
