Malted Chocolate Sauce

5 oz bar semisweet (60%) chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup malted milk powder
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons sugar

To Serve:
whipped cream
extra confetti


Heat the milk in a heavy-bottomed small saucepan until it starts to bubble around the edges. Reduce heat and whisk in the remaining ingredients. Continue to whisk until all of the ingredients are incorporated into the warm milk. Allow to cool 5 minutes. Drizzle over the cake. Store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

My thoughts:

Since I have been on a huge ice cream, milkshake and ice cream cake kick this summer, partnering with I Love Ice Cream Cakes for this recipe was a no-brainer!

I checked out their website to see which cakes were available and when I saw that they made a Carvel® Ice Cream Cake that was decorated simply with confetti, I went straight to the product locator. Here I found that the Safeway less than a mile from my house in Baltimore City sold a ton of ice cream cakes, including the confetti cake. I picked it up and carefully brought it home with me sitting next to me in the front seat of the car. I was a little worried it would crash onto the floor when someone cut me off (Maryland drivers!) but it arrived unscathed.

I love a malted milkshake and thought it would be fun to make a warm and rich Malted Chocolate Sauce to drizzle over the cake. It turned out great and was super easy to make. Just make sure you don’t drizzle the sauce until everyone is ready to eat because it is warm and will cause the cake to melt! It went really well with the chocolate and vanilla ice cream in the cake.
