Malted chocolate isn’t just for milkshakes! Malted Mousse Brownies have chocolate malt powder both in the brownie batter and in the creamy topping.

Last week, I made an impulse purchase at the supermarket checkout line and bought a movie-size box of WHOPPERS, chocolate covered malt balls (not to be confused with moth balls!). I guess I was feeling nostalgic because I haven’t even thought about eating this candy since I was a teenager. It must have been fate that I tossed the candy into my shopping cart because literally the next day I stumbled across a recipe for Malted Mousse Brownies. Super simple to make, these brownies are enhanced with chocolate malt powder and topped with a silky smooth malted mousse topping and more coarsely chopped Whoppers on top.

This almost homemade dessert starts with a boxed brownie mix. Adding a little chocolate malt powder to the brownie batter (I used Ovaltine) gives the brownies a malted flavor boost.

When I was growing up, Whoppers came packaged in a milk carton which we thought was just so cool. We’d open the spout, pass the carton around, and pour out handfuls to share. They’d disappear quickly because once you bit into the chocolate shell, the rest of the malt candy practically melted in your mouth. That’s what happens with these brownies, too!

Choose a brownie mix for baking in a 9×13-inch pan, and if the directions on the package give options for “fudgey” or “cake” brownies, go for “cake” for the best results. Garnish the brownies with coarsely chopped Whoppers just before serving. You might even like to add a drizzle of chocolate syrup for a little extra flair!
