|From The Whimsical Princess|
First of all... Happy Halloween!
Sooooo... last week's podcast was sponsored in part by your favorite Halloween candy. My favorite is always (and always will be) Whoppers. Those delightful sour/sweet/crunchy/chewy balls of goodness I would trade six fun-size other candy bars for. Gladly.
Here is a recipe I found from The Whimsical Princess that combines the perfection of malted milk balls with the divinity of brownies.
Paula Deen’s Malted Milk Ball
- 3/4 cup butter
- 6 1 ounce squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 malted milk powder
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped malted milk balls( I used Whoppers)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 13 X 9 baking pan with foil and spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, combine butter and chocolate. Cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, beat sugars, malted milk powder, and eggs at medium speed until fluffy.
In small bowl, combine flour and salt. Gradually add to sugar mixture, beating until combined. Add melted chocolate mixture, beating until combined.
Stir in malted milk balls, Spoon batter into prepared pan, and bake for 23 to 27 minutes or until brownies are set in the center. Let cool completely.
Frost and garnish with additional malted milk balls.
