If you were to ask me what my favorite candy is I would tell you .. what are you thinking? I’m a sugar high mama that loves all candy! But if you’re gonna twist my arm and make me pick, Hershey’s WHOPPERS would make my top 5.
I love powdered malt whether it’s in a milk shake or a glass of milk and especially when it’s in a WHOPPERS chocolate covered malt ball. So what better way to pay tribute to one of my favorite chocolate candies than to kick up the flavor into a sweet cupcake. I have to admit, this has been one of the most fun cupcakes I’ve ever made because of all the flavor experimenting that went into creating the chocolate malt buttercream. I quite literally sat in the kitchen and added a bit of this and a bit of that, adding and changing the measurements that I wrote on a cardboard box until it tastes just perfect.
