I always have so much fun creating new desserts, this bar was no exception. I LOVE malt flavor in my desserts so I knew this bar would be a huge hit. I used my Malt powder AND some crushed chocolate malt balls. Wait until you take your first bite, between the marshmallow bits and the malt balls, the texture is chewy and perfect.
Hope you enjoy!!
