Malted Milkshake #recipe from @Katrinaskitchen

Yes I’m STILL trying to get rid of the Easter candy. However I knew what I was going to do with these Robin Eggs maltballs way before Easter. When I saw this idea over at Pass the Sushi I knew it was going to make an appearance in my kitchen. I hate maltballs. There I said it. Even as a child they were the last thing to be eaten out of my Easter basket. Much like Peeps there is something iconic about them that they simply must be put into the Easter candy mix. As punishment for compelling me to buy them I pulverized them. Surprisingly I ended up liking the result.

Blend it up and top with whipped cream. The result was a tasty milkshake. The good thing about food blogging is that you are motivated to try new things. The bad thing about food blogging is that you have to confess all that you have been making in your kitchen. I made this one afternoon while my husband was at work. Unlike me he DOES like maltballs. I did save some pulverized maltballs for him. Let’s see if he actually reads through all of my blog rambling and requests a milkshake. Code word: Montana. {As in if he tells me, “I would like a malted milkshake all to myself please. Montana.” Then I will whip him up one of his very own.} Four Year Old Foodie and I shared and it was gone in about 2 minutes. Enjoy!

Malted Milkshake Recipe

    Very cute! I like the idea. I am not a big fan of malted candies but I do like malts (milkshakes) and just forget about peeps haha. Not yummy to this girl…

    Your milkshakes look absolutely gorgeous!

    I love the straw and the photo of the milkshake. One serving recipes are dangerous;) You can destroy the evidence, and Bailey, the Wonder Dog won’t tell.

    Adam refuses any milkshake that’s not malted. Period. This will make a nice surprise for him one of these days when he’s been especially good… like, new car good. Creative way to use leftover candy!

    Your pulvarization idea would work for so many sweets that you have, like those last few leftover cookies. Also helps it stretch for sharing :]

    I’m not quite sure what malt balls are. I’m guessing they are like malteasers which I love. Will substitute them in the blender and see what happens. Haven’t had a milkshake in years so thanks for the nostaligic reminder.
