It took me several years to find an amazing malted milk powder and when I finally did, the bag came with this recipe on it. I love malted milk. The flavor reminds me of my youth when I always asked for it to be added to my milkshakes at the ice cream parlor. Adding the powder to blondies seemed like a swell idea. It would be like a malted vanilla milkshake, only in bar form! Thanks to the geniuses at King Arthur Flour, the malted milk blondies did not disappoint. They were rich, dense and gooey with undertones of malted milk. It was like eating a Malted Milk Ball, only shaped like a brownie. Try these for a sweet winter treat. You’ll be in malted milk heaven.
