On June 5, 1883 the Horlick's company developed the process to dehydrate milk - they mixed it with some malted barley and voila! malted milk was born. Although it was originally intended for babies (as an early version of formula), malt powder became a cornerstone in American culture. In honor of the Horlicks' creation, I thought I'd dig up a great recipe for a simple malted milk. However, my search resulted in something better: A recipe for milk chocolate-malt brownies! I don't know about you guys, but I'm mixing these up tonight! To check out the recipe,
Note: It says it makes 48 brownies... 48? They've obviously never seen my kind of brownies!
1 package (11.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2 cup instant malted milk powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup malted milk balls, coarsely chopped
1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease bottom and sides of rectangular pan 13x9x2 inches.
2. Melt milk chocolate and butter in 3-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Cool slightly. Mix in sugar, vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients except malted milk balls.
3. Spread batter in pan. Sprinkle with malted milk balls.
