If you decide to try making Homemade Malted Milk Balls you’re going to be pleasantly surprised, they’re less crunchy than commercial malted milk balls, Whoppers, yet still have all the flavor but in a smooth bite.
Inspired by a recent random purchase of malted barley extract I decided to try something beyond malted milk, so I made Malted Milk Balls. Don’t get me wrong, malted milk and I have a love/hate relationship, I love it so much, my pants hate it. It felt like a rather grand gesture to look for something to make for my family when what I really wanted to do was settle in and drink a gallon of malted milk. So finding a Malted Milk Ball recipe that made a decent rendition of malted milk balls made my sacrifice easier. Also they’re dipped in chocolate.
These little Malted Milk Balls are rather uncomplicated to make. I think even kids as young as 3 could help roll the balls of cooled filling and but moms or dads will need to do the dipping. This is exactly the kind of recipe I loved when my kids were little, some for them to work on and then some for them to watch. Your only problem may be when they realize that the dough they’re rolling tastes really good, up until that point it’s smooth sailing.
