Milk Chocolate Whopper Brownies

Milk Chocolate Whoppers Brownies are a malted milk brownie made with milk chocolate and topped with a malted chocolate frosting! If you are a fan of the classic candy, you will love these brownies!

While I always think you should make the stuff you see here, I have to say these are really good brownies.  Really good…and the frosting, oh my’s awesome ~ tastes just like a Whopper thanks to the yummy addition of Ovaltine!

These are pretty easy brownies…straight forward…no funny business.

Chop up some Whoppers (chocolate malt balls)

Then melt your milk chocolate and butter together.  When it’s good and melty add your wet stuff, like eggs, vanilla and brown sugar.

Then add your dry stuff…flour, baking powder, Ovaltine etc,When all that’s mixed together fold in your Whoppers.

And spread it into your prepared pan.

Bake ’em up and then frost them with some yummy Chocolate Malt Frosting…or don’t, but you really should.

You can thank me later!

    • Category: Brownies
    • Cuisine: Dessert


    • 1 (11.5 oz) bag of milk chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup chocolate malt mix, I used Ovaltine
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 cup coarsely chopped chocolate malt balls (I used Whoppers)


    • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 cup chocolate malt mix (Ovaltine)
    • 2 tablespoons milk



    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
    2. Melt the milk chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat until the chocolate is just melted, stirring frequently.
    3. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs, vanilla and brown sugar until combined.
    4. Stir in the salt, baking powder, malt powder, and flour until smooth and evenly combined.
    5. Fold in your chopped malt balls
    6. Spread the batter into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted 1 inch away from edge comes out clean.
    7. Let cool completely.
    8. To make frosting, place butter, powdered sugar, and malt mix in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low for 1 minute. Add in the milk and increase the mixing speed to medium, mixing until smooth and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
    9. Spread the frosting on the cooled brownies.
    10. Top with extra chocolate malt balls for garnish, if desired.


    store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Thank you for this tutorial! The photos are wonderful! : )


I could not get the frosting to work. I think it was the malted milk powder. I am going to try the brownies and frosting again, but with ovaltine.


I am making these right now… the batter is delicious! I cannot wait for my staff to try them tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe.


I made these and have to say they are delicious!
Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipes!


Yummy, malt and chocolate together…. such a wonderful combo! Love malt frosting too, for the extra kick of malt 🙂


Just wanted to let you know that I did indeed try these out over the holiday weekend and they turned out fantastic! I did everything just as you said and trusted your awesome recipe writing skills, and I was happily rewarded with perfect brownies 🙂 (this is actually the first time I have ever down brownies from scratch -gasp! I know) We took them to my boyfriend’s family and they were a huge hit (I get the feeling I’ll be making them again soon). Thanks again for the recipe! (I took photos if you want to see them, but they… Read more »

I hope you guys have recovered and things are mostly back to normal. I’m in NC, but my area was spared (many others weren’t so lucky.) Chocolate is a good way to take your mind off stress and the big cleanup job ahead!

These look amazing or to quote my eight year old daughter – O to the M to the G! I am making them for my husband’s fantasy football draft this weekend. I am sure to be wife of the year. Hope your power is back soon!!

For some reason I have never been able to get into whoppers but in this form I know I would dig them!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

Well “Ma” I hope you get your power back real soon! If I were you I’d be hanging out at my MIL’s place A LOT.


Whoppers! Love ’em! I hope your power returns soon, it is NOT fun I know. On Christmas Day 2000, an ice storm hit east Texas and Arkansas. Our whole area was out, completely unreal. I live in the middle of my city and was out of power for 17 days! I was so glad to have my blow dryer and curling iron back!! Just remember, all are safe and this too shall pass!


I could use a brownie right now! Can’t wait til ur wired again…

Hey Ma Shelly, I need you to step away from the butter churn and get back on the internets. NOW.

How could I make an adult version of this? I love Bailey’s Irish Cream and Whoppers.

Oh man….being without power is NOT fun. Although, your post is cracking me up! 😉 When Ike hit here a few years ago, I was excited to “hunker down.” We had chocolate, we had snacks, it would be fun, right?!? Wrong. The novelty wore off after about a hour. We were all out STILL cleaning up the mess in our yards, days later, and a lady down the street burst out of her house yelling, “MY CEILING FAN IS TURNING!!!” So funny…the power coming back on was like winning the lottery. The brownies look amazing…and GORGEOUS pictures, Shelly!


We LOOVE whoppers, my late mother in law ALWAYS had them by her side lol……I’ll have to make these for the family in her memory!

Hope you’re up and running again real soon Shelly!


Wow – those pictures… and your situation makes me cringe for you. I hope everything gets restored for you and the others very soon. The only time we’ve ever been without power for an extended period of time is in the winter during ice storms. I can imagine how hot and smelly everything is around those parts!

I would be going bonkers with no power for so long! Those brownies look delicious, especially the icing:-)
