Chocolatey, malty goodness isn't exclusive to just milkshakes and candy anymore.

Whopper Pie

INGREDIENTS
  1. 16 ounces Whoppers, plus extra for decorating
  2. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  3. 4 egg yolks
  4. 2 cups whole milk
  5. 3/4 cup extra-fine (caster) sugar
  6. 3 tablespoons malt powder
  7. 7 ounces dark chocolate, chopped up
  8. 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Add Whoppers to a food processor and blitz into crumbs.
  • Melt butter in a pan over medium heat, then add the Whoppers crumbs and mix. Press mixture into a greased 10-inch pie pan, loose bottomed if you prefer, and push down evenly with a spatula or the back of a spoon until the bottom and sides are completely covered.
  • Leave in the fridge to set while you make the filling. In a medium pan, add the egg yolks, milk, sugar and malt powder and whisk over low heat until thickened. Remove from heat, and add the the chocolate, stirring until it's a smooth, silky consistency.
