Maltesers Reindeer Chocolate Bark



I’ve been quite overwhelmed with the lovely comments since making my Maltesers Reindeer Bark and many of you have asked how to make it. I’m almost embarrassed to call it a “recipe” as it’s made in under 5 minutes but as it’s caused quite a commotion I thought I’d better write a blog piece!


300g Milk Chocolate (any make will do!)
1 pack of Malteser Reindeers
Red M&M’s
Any Christmas sprinkles you like!


1. Break up your Milk Chocolate into squares & place in a microwave bowl & blast for 30 seconds at a time, giving a good stir each time. You want to get to the stage where there’s just little bits of chocolate left to melt. Give it a good stir until it melts into the rest.

2. Pour your Milk Chocolate into a small baking tray lined with greaseproof paper (mine measured 8″ x 8″)

3. Now comes the fun bit!! Pop your Malteser Reindeers onto the chocolate followed by the red M&M’s and your Christmas Sprinkles before popping your tray into the fridge to set.

4. Once set cut into pieces & enjoy!!

Hints & tips

  1. Have all the items you’ll be adding to the bark to hand so that you can start popping them on as soon as you’ve poured the chocolate.
  2. If you only have a larger baking tray then you’ll want to increase the amount of chocolate you use otherwise it won’t cover the base of your tin and be quite thin.
