I didn't actually make these myself, but I did have the pleasure of eating one when I when round to MarieAlice's for the afternoon. The frosting was really good, the golden icing sugar and the syrup gave it a lovely caramel taste. The maltesers in the muffin don't stay 'crunchy' they melt and that gives a delicious toffee texture to the muffin. This is another winner Marie!

Great icing. Muffin a tad too moist for me, but it could be because I cooked them in a large sized muffin tin. Tasted good.

I have yet to understand how MarieAlice can have succeeded in devising a recipe that is so decadently delicious that it contains crushed Maltesers, yet is, at the same time, so low in fat. This is a recipe which will appeal to children of all ages, be they pre-schoolers, adolescents, octogenarians or nonagenarians. Thank you, MarieAlice, for an easy to make and delightful recipe. — Oct 5, 2005
