SERVES 24| PREP 20 mins, plus chilling | Easy

Maltesers® crispy bars, M&M’S® Chocolate Eggs, Maltesers® Milk and White Chocolate Mini Bunnies


Unsalted butter 60g

Marshmallows 320g, chopped

Toasted rice cereal 200g

M&M’S® Chocolate Eggs 1 x 80g bag, lightly crushed

Milk chocolate 200g, finely chopped

White chocolate 200g, finely chopped

Maltesers® Milk Chocolate Mini Bunnies 1 x 58g bag

Maltesers® White Chocolate Mini Bunnies 1 x 58g bag


Step 1

Lightly grease and line a 28cm x 18cm tin with baking paper. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over a low heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Remove from the heat and stir in the toasted rice cereal and M&M’S® Chocolate Eggs, then tip the mixture into the prepared tin and press it flat, using slightly wet hands (to prevent it from sticking to you).

Step 3

Add the milk and white chocolate to separate heatproof bowls, then melt them over pans of gently simmering water. Dot spoonfuls of milk chocolate over the cereal mixture, then spoon the white chocolate into the gaps until all the cereal is covered.

Step 4

Swirl a skewer or fork through the chocolate to create a marbled effect, then gently tap the base of the tin on a flat surface to level it out. Top with all the Maltesers® Mini Bunnies, then leave to chill for a few hours, or until the chocolate is set. To serve, bring to room temperature and cut into squares with a sharp knife.

Helpful hacks

Instead of buying even more chocolate, why not melt down any spare Easter eggs to create the chocolate topping?


If you want to save some time, you can easily melt your milk and white chocolate in 30-second bursts in the microwave.


This recipe is very versatile, so you can decorate it with whatever Easter chocolate or sweets you have to hand.


To get perfect edges on your bars, warm your knife under hot water for a few seconds then dry it off, before cutting through the chocolate.
