Yay! I am so excited to share today’s post with you all! This is some of the best frosting I have ever made! Next to my cookies and cream frosting that is… I don’t think anything can top that! But, this isn’t just your plain old chocolate frosting, oooh no! The addition of malted milk powder gives it a great boost of flavor!

I’ve always loooooved vanilla malt milkshakes. They are my milkshake of choice, to be exact. But, I needed a chocolate frosting for a recipe to come soon, next week to be exact… *wink wink* So I went to searching for a chocolate buttercream frosting I could use.

I came across this recipe from She Wears Many Hats and it looked insanely delish! I did change it up a bit because Amy’s version is perfect for frosting an entire cake, it is a little more runny than I was looking for. So, I tweaked it and it’s perfect for frosting cupcakes!!

    Made this for my husband and his coworkers. All raved about how good this frosting was! Definitely a keeper. I like a generous amount of frosting. This iced brownies I made in a 11-inch long x 7-inch wide x 2-inch deep Pyrex dish (I know, it’s a weird size). If I were using a 9-inch wide x 13-inch long pan, I’d probably make 1 1/2 times this recipe.
