We stirred chocolate-flavor malt powder into both the brownie base and the lush, fluffy topper. For an extra-indulgent dessert, substitute your favorite homemade brownie recipe. Just be sure it bakes in a 13x9x2-inch pan.


  • 1 18 - 19 1/2 - ounce package milk chocolate brownie mix*
  • 1/4 cup chocolate malted milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup chocolate malted milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped malted milk balls
  • Chocolate-flavored syrup (optional)


  1. Prepare brownies according to package directions*, adding 1/4 cup chocolate malted milk powder. Bake in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan according to package directions. Cool thoroughly in pan on a wire rack.
  2. For topping: In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool slightly. In large mixing bowl, beat the whipping cream, 1/2 cup malted milk powder and the vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Slowly add the gelatin mixture and beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Spread topping over cooled brownies. Cover; chill for at least 3 hours or overnight. Just before serving, sprinkle with the chopped malted milk balls and, if desired, drizzle with chocolate-flavored syrup. To serve, cut into squares.


  • *If brownie mix gives the option of making cake-like or fudgy brownies, follow the cake-like directions.
