You can find an almost limitless array of recipes on the Internet… to the point that groaning about “having nothing to cook” is a little like Paris Hilton whining about having nothing to wear. But sometimes the best recipes are found in the most..expected..of places: On the back of the package. After testing multiple brownie recipes, I have concluded that my favorite is still this one from the Baker’s chocolate box. (I swap a bag of chocolate chips for the nuts.) And after years of pursuing the ultimate home malt, I finally found it: On the back of the Carnation chocolate malted milk container. I have tried to make it a little healthier by using frozen yogurt and 2% milk. The secret, I think, is the surprisingly large amount of vanilla: 1/2 teaspoon per serving.
Perfect fountain-style chocolate malt
(Adapted from the back of the Carnation malted milk container)
3/4 cup cold (2%) milk
3 tablespoons chocolate malt powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 scoops frozen yogurt (I used vanilla)
Blend and serve. I used an immersion blender, which blends it right in the cup.
