“Here's one to add to your bake sale repertoire--and they'll be just enough different [but still the same thing] to get the kids curious, and good enough that they'll sell like "hot cakes!" Save a couple for the home-folks, because you won't be bringing any home when you take these to the potluck or family reunion picnic! I use two bowls (recycle the first one) so I have everything ready to pour and mix--goes much quicker and no wasting time to measure when the stuff is hot! Again, the gals at Taste of Home get all the credit--Aug/Sep '09.”

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped malted milk balls
  • 34 cup instant malted milk powder
  • Reuse Bowl One
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet)

  • Over The Top
  • 3 cups malted milk balls (whole)


  1. Spray a 13x9 pan or grease with extra butter; set aside.
  2. Microwave Bowl One ingredients (or use a Dutch Oven on the stove-top); pour over Bowl Two ingredients; stir to coat well.
  3. Press marshmallow-cereal mixture into prepped pan; set aside.
  4. Reuse the first bowl, melt the chocolate chips ONLY, when soft stir, then add the malt powder; spread over pan ingredients.
