This recipe came from a Carnation flyer several years ago. These cupcakes are delicious, especially if you like chocolate malt as much as my family does!
I added the Whopper candy on top of the finished cupcake. It seemed like a natural but, of course, its optional.

Prepare chocolate cake mix with eggs, water, and oil as package directs. Mix well. Add malt powder, folding in by hand.
Spoon batter into cupcake wrappers placed in a cupcake pan and bake according to cake mix package directions. Watch cupcakes and test with a toothpick when they are nearly done. Do not over-bake.
Spread or pipe frosting onto COOLED cupcakes, garnish with a whole malted milk ball.
