If you are planning to make this recipe but don’t have Maltesers, why not swap them out for another kind of treat such as chocolate buttons or maybe chocolate chunks. At this time of the year we all seem to have lots of chocolate in the house.

Tips for making this stress free chocolate cake

Prepare ahead:
The filling will remain soft and ready to use in a bowl covered with cling film for 2–3 days. The finished cake can be kept in an airtight container for up to a day.

Freeze the cake and icing separately, then defrost at room temperature and assemble when ready to serve
