I got a major crush on these delectable Triple Chocolate Malted Whoppers Brownies!
These have triple the yummy chocolate malted milk balls.
Inside the brownies…
In the frosting…
On top of the frosting…
Into your mouth! That’s the best part!
Whoppers remind me of 2 things specifically…
Holidays and the Movies!
Holidays are explainable. But the movies? Ok well ya know…when you get your tub of popcorn, a half gallon of your favorite soda and a box of Whoppers, you’ve made it to the big time!
There’s just something utterly ridiculous about munching hot buttered popcorn and crunchy malted milk ball Whoppers together with a large Pepsi on ice. Ok, is that so weird or is it just me?
Anyways… These Triple Chocolate Malted Whoppers Brownies would be a sweet addition to Easter weekend or how about a cool 60’s retro party? Of course if you love the taste of milk chocolate, malt, a little crunchy and brownies, these are what the doctor ordered!
