    Default Malted Milk Balls

    Leave it to me to give you'all a challenge!

    I wanted to make malted milk balls.
    The recipes I found online all were: white chocolate & malt powder, combine roll into balls and dip in chocolate. Well they are very yummy and it was not hard to throw them on a candy tray-BUT- I was hoping for one that actually crunched and melted in your mouth like the kind you buy.

    Has anyone gotten closer to Whoppers?

    I found this at the Cooks.com site:


    MALTED MILK BALLS
    Printed from COOKS.COM

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    1 c. white chocolate coating
    1 c. malted milk powder
    Dipping chocolate or colored chocolate coating

    Melt white chocolate in double boiler or on low in the microwave. Stir in malted milk powder and mix well. Form into balls. Dip in chocolate. For Easter, dip in pastel coatings and dot with milk chocolate for bird's eggs.

    found this one -- hope it helps


    Malted Milk Balls

    2 egg whites
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 1/2 tablespoons dutch cocoa powder
    2 tablespoons chocolate malt powder

    Preheat oven to 225

    Place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl. Beat with the whisk attachment until frothy. Slowly add the 1/4 cup granulated sugar and beat until you reach firm peaks. Sift powdered sugar, cocoa, and malt powder into the firm egg whites. Gently fold the mixture together and place into a pastry bag fitted with a round tip.

    Pipe small balls onto a silpat lined baking sheet and bake for about 50-60 minutes. Turn off the oven and prop the door open with a wooden spoon. Let them slowly cool and crisp up for about 1-2 hours. Dip in melted - preferrably tempered - chocolate and enjoy!


    Also, here is a recipe for the type of center the original Malted Milk Balls have, not just chocolate over chocolate... You will have to flavor it with Malt Powder.

    SPONGE CANDY

    1 c. sugar
    1 c. light corn syrup
    1 tbsp. vinegar
    1 1/2 tbsp. baking soda
    Chocolate

    Mix sugar, syrup and vinegar in a 3 quart saucepan. Cook to hard crack stage (300 degrees). Remove from heat, add baking soda, mix quickly. Pour into a greased 11 x 7 x 1 1/2 inch pan. Cool. Invert pan, break into bite size pieces. Spread or dip into melted chocolate.

    I tried the malt powder and white chocolate. Very yummy but no crunch.

    I also found the one with the egg whites. I think I will try those next. The sponge candy recipe would be closer to the texture, but I am almost positive that adding malt powder at any step will create a burnt mess.....

    I will let you know how the egg white one turns out.

    I have tried the meringue version. I think cooking it for the 50 mins was far too long. It has a light crunch though that was great but it is in disks, not balls. Not sure if there's a way to make them round.
