@raynbow- Thanks for the tip! Here is another one. Crushed malted milk balls make a great addition to any birthday cake recipe. Simply crush them and add as many as you like into your cake mix. The result is a unique-flavored cake that will have your party guests trying to figure out what your secret ingredient is that makes your cake so fabulous.


You can also make an extra chocolatey treat by adding crushed malted milk balls to melted chocolate. You can use milk or semi-sweet chocolate depending on your preference, and poor the mixture into candy molds for seasonal or holiday candies. This rich, sweet treat is especially great during the Easter holiday when malted milk balls are readily available.
