Malted Milk Chocolate Shakes

Ever since making those chocolate malt sandwich cookies last month, I have been craving malt. I fell in love with the flavor and have been scouring recipes looking for more ways to use it.  This recipe reared its head one day a few weeks ago and I knew it was a match made in heaven. And after making them last night, it’s difficult to describe how deeply I feel for these milkshakes. Really, it is.

Malted Milk Chocolate Shakes

They are rich and sinful and have truly satisfied all of my malt cravings…for the moment anyway.  Well, at least until tonight because I’ve got some leftover malted milk chocolate sauce and extra ice cream hanging out in the freezer.  I may have to go with a salad again for lunch today if I want to squeeze one of these milkshakes into my menu again.  I suppose you could use any type of ice cream you want – I went with chocolate and I’m not ashamed to admit that I didn’t make my own this time.  Make your own ice cream if you want but if you can’t wait the 24-36 hours it takes to make a batch at home, pick some up on the way home from work.  Nobody would be the wiser…and if you’re going with chocolate ice cream like I did, prepare yourself for one awesome experience!
