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.
