Malted Milk Ball Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Malted milk ball heaven Yvonne Ruperti

Like malted milkshakes? This simple and creamy dessert is a blast of milk chocolate and malt, with crunchy malt candy on top.

Notes: I dissolve the milk powder into the warm cream so that the texture is fully smooth, but mixture needs to be fully cold before whipping. Chilling in the freezer will speed up the time.
