“I invented this malt when I was 13 years old, and used to make it on Sunday afternoons for our family of 7! Now it's a treat for my Grandchildren. You can add any flavorings you want, strawberries, carmel or butterscotch toppings, coffee crystals, or anything you like. Be creative! Ingredients are for one person. If making for a crowd, increase accordingly.”
