Chocolate Malt Frosting

1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/2 cup dutch process cocoa
1/4 cup malted milk powder*
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3 tablespoons milk

In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and the malted milk powder. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until smooth.

**Make sure you use actual malted milk powder and not malt flavored drink mix. Most stores carry it near breakfast beverages.

Frosts: 12-18 cupcakes or one cake
Good with Chocolate Malted Cupcakes

My thoughts:
Why did it take so long for me to make chocolate malt icing? I’ve been missing out.


  1. Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday. Those cupcakes look delicious.

  3. I can’t wait to try these. I am a maltomaniac also (and a chocoholic), so these sound terrific.

  4. Happy birthday! Hope you had a lovely day. 🙂
