Malteser Cupcake Recipe | Cupcake Jemma

Maltesers… yet another candy item that I should not have lying around. Once I open a packet, that’s it. I’m popping Maltesers like there is no tomorrow! This recipe for Malteser Cupcakes is a good way of ensuring that you use up an open bag of the little crispy blighters. Light and malty, it is packed full of the things! Please note that if you are overseas, an alternative can be found in Whoppers, which are practically the same.
