This is Whopper, as in malted milk balls, not the grilled kind found at Burger King.
That would be a bit weird, wouldn't it?
If you love the flavor of Whoppers, then you will really enjoy this cake.
I think malted milk is an underused ingredient.
I mean, back in the day, you couldn't go into any self-respecting soda shoppe or ice cream shop without seeing the words "Malt" somewhere on the menu.
We love to make Chocolate Malts at home these days.
Fortunately, we also have a couple of good shops near us that still make the old-fashioned malts. You can also add malted milk powder to chocolate chip cookies for an incredible flavor.
This cake is not only easy but it is given a boost of flavor from good ole malted milk that gives it that yummy and unique taste.
1 box Milk Chocolate Cake Mix
1 1/2 cups chocolate malted milk powder, divided
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tub (8 oz.) whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
1 cup Whoppers malted milk balls
Stir until completely incorporated and no longer grainy.
Spread topping on top of cooled cake.
Put one cup of malted milk balls into a ziploc bag and zip it up.
Pound with a rolling pin (or other hard object) to crush Whoppers.
(This is a very good stress reliever, by the way)
Sprinkle finished cake with crushed malted milk balls.
