Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Brownies

Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Brownies
     Something very rare happened in my house a couple of weeks ago…I looked in my cupboard and realized I had no white chocolate chips in my house. You see, to me that is like looking in your refrigerator and realizing there are no eggs, no butter, or no milk. White chocolate is a NECESSITY to me, so I had to decide what I could bake without my staple. That is when I saw a fresh container of malted milk powder on the shelf.
     My husband is a big fan of anything malt-flavored. He likes to eat spoonfuls of malted milk powder on his vanilla ice cream. This gave me an idea: why not try putting malted milk powder in a brownie?
     For the brownie, I used a basic recipe but replaced some of the flour with a good amount of malted milk powder. I threw in a couple handfuls of semi-sweet chocolate chips to richen it up a bit…And richen it up it did, perhaps a bit too much. The presence of the chocolate chips overwhelmed the taste of the malt powder. Don’t get me wrong; the brownies themselves were quite good. Fans of dark chocolate would even call them delicious. But for a white chocolate gal and guy, they just didn’t take the trophy home for us.
