An old-time candy gets a fresh makeover. This is one of our favorite malted milk ball dessert recipes. The malted milk powder adds such a unique flavor to this bark so don't be tempted to skip it. —James Schend, Taste of Home Deputy Editor


  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup malted milk powder
  • 1-1/4 cups malted milk balls, chopped and divided


  1. Line a 15x10x1-in. pan with parchment; set aside.
  2. In a double boiler or metal bowl over hot water, melt baking chips until 2/3 are melted. Remove from heat; stir until smooth. Stir in malted milk powder. Fold in 3/4 cup malted milk balls. Spread into prepared pan; top with remaining malted milk balls (pan will not be full). Refrigerate until firm, 15-20 minutes. Break or cut into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
