Look at all of that delicious frosting!
     Last year my husband and I devised a recipe for white chocolate malted milk topped brownies. It had been a year since I last made them, so I decided to feature them as a dessert for our Memorial Day dinner. This time, I doubled the recipe and baked them in a 13 x 9 inch cake pan. I also added two cups of whoppers to the brownie batter and one more cup of chopped whoppers on top of the frosting.
     The brownies are moist and fudgy, with just enough lift to appease those who prefer a cake-like  brownie. The topping tastes like a mix between the inside of a whopper, white chocolate fudge, and vanilla frosting. It is a thicker consistency than your everyday frosting and very, very rich.
     Overall, I am extremely pleased with how these brownies turned out. I am positive they will be making another appearance in the future.

  2. Oh, my husband loves whoppers! I think I will make this for Father’s Day!

  3. Oh wow these sound DELICIOUS!!!! I’ve never seen this dessert before, I’m adding it to my “to try” list! Looks wonderful, thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh my god that is sinful!

  5. Thanks for the nice comments! It was a lot of fun coming up with this dessert. The base has been altered from my grandmother’s recipe for Mississippi Mud brownies. The frosting is an original concoction that my husband and I came up with and tweaked together. Believe it or not, they taste even BETTER than they look!
