My 4 year old granddaughter and I made mini brownie cupcakes and wanted to frost them. I had some malted milk powder in the pantry and thought to myself how good malt and chocolate is together. I just made my regular buttercream and added malted milk powder. If you like whoppers, you'll like this. You can add malted milk powder to taste. You could also use Ovaltine if you want chocolate malt frosting.

How to Make Vanilla Malt Buttercream Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter with malt powder; this will help with the grittiness of the malt powder.
  2. Sift sugar. Slowly add to butter mixture. Mix on medium speed until just blended.
  3. Blend in vanilla.
  4. Add 3 T heavy whipping cream. Mix on medium for about a minute. Add more cream depending on the consistency you desire.
  5. Mix on high for about 30 seconds, just to give it a nice fluff. You don't want to whip too much air into it.
