"I agree this chocolate Malt dessert recipe if very good, but the malt flavor was overwhelmed by the chocolate. I love chocolate but was really looking forward to having the malt flavoring. Will make again but will omit the semisweet chocolate & cocoa powder and hope that the malt flavor stands out on it's own."
