Maltesers Dessert Dip

Ahh Maltesers …the lighter way to enjoy chocolate…and one of the ultimate Christmas treats! Growing up it always seemed that we would have at least one red rectangle box of Maltesers floating around the house at Christmas. It was our Dad’s favourite and let’s just say the apples did not fall far from the tree!!!

And not that we would ever argue with enjoying them straight from the box, but this Maltesers dessert dip tastes almost like a Maltesers cheesecake except with half of effort and none of the wait time –jackpot!

The Lighter Way to Enjoy Christmas!

And when I say half of the effort, I really mean with virtually no effort at all! This Maltesers dessert dip can be made from start to finish in 15 minutes.

And when you’ve got the in-laws in one room, screaming children in another and gifts still to be wrapped, no one wants any recipe that takes longer than 15 minutes!

Not to mention, it will satisfy everyone so you don’t need to worry about separate desserts for different people. Just put this on the table and wait for the compliments to come flooding in!

As for the biscuits to serve with this Maltesers dessert dip –well that’s really personal choice. My favourites are a Rich Tea and a vanilla wafer, but honestly whatever you have in your store cupboard will be perfect.

In fact, this Malteser dessert dip is so good that I would hazard a guess it would even work with a fig roll!!! (Although I haven’t tried it so don’t hold me to it!)

  • 220 g cream cheese softened
  • 100 g mascarpone
  • 130 g icing sugar
  • 200 g Maltesers


  • Place the Maltesers into a Ziplock bag and seal. Using a rolling pin, gently crush the Maltesers so you have a combination of both rubble and larger chunks. Set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the cream cheese until light and airy; approximately 2 minutes. 
  • Add the mascarpone and whisk again to ensure evenly combined. 
  • Add the icing sugar and whisk until fully incorporated and there are no lumps. 
  • Gently fold in the crushed Maltesers until they are evenly distributed. 
  • Serve with your choice of biscuit –we love Rich Tea and vanilla wafers!
