Malteser Slices

We switched it up a little this week and instead of me doing all the work, I gave instructions and J did the baking! And boy did he do a good job! I’ve been training for a half marathon and my legs were just too tired after my long run yesterday to walk around afterwards, so I got to sit in the kitchen and watch J make me a delicious treat!

These are a really easy sweet treat and don’t require any baking! Hope you enjoy them as much as we are!
