MALTED MILK BALL CHOCOLATE CAKE- Delish!!

This cake is a double treat,plus!
It is made with sweet milk chocolate and with the darkest bittersweet chocolate.
A great combination of flavors that will have your taste buds crying for more!!
I have had this recipe for a couple years, and when I seen Malted Milk Balls in the store again ...I knew I had to make and share this delicious chocolate cake with my J.A.P. sisters!

I am adding a note from Shannon Green:
I make malted milk chip cookies, and the malted milk balls are ground up for the cookies. I may roughly chop these then spread onto hot cake. Seems like a better idea to me .
