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!

    • 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.

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?

    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!

  2. m’kay . . . let’s look on the bright side of things . . . from this experience you’ll know how long you can go without washing your hair . . . you’ll know how to flush a toilet w/only a bucket . . . you’ll know where to buy the best long-burning candles . . . how long a flashlight batter actually lasts . . . how many variations of the ‘hobo-dinners’ you can make in a week . . . yep, i’d say you’ll be able to lead a whole pack of girl scouts to victory in the world of camping . . . gold medal status in fact . . .

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. I love malted milk balls! I’ve gone a little Maltesers crazy recently and I’m craving these brownies so much now!

    Hope your power comes back on soon. Whenever our power goes out I forget and go round turning on light switches and being momentarily confused as to why they don’t work.

  7. I cannot believe you are STILL without power! I am not a good camper as well which is why I was so DAMN AFRAID that my power was going to go out. My roommates just couldn’t understand. But, uh. They camp.

    If you want to come over and use my internet, you are more than welcome to! It’s not THAT long of a trip to NYC, right?

  8. I literally just had to swallow some drool. Gross. I’m gross.
    Nice work on these! I hope you get your power back soon! I know how that sucks. It’s only when we are without it that we realize how much we depend on it.

  9. Little House on the Prairie is pretty much my favorite thing. Ever. HOWever, I do not last more than 5-6 hours in the great outdoors. And that’s under optimal weather conditions. We went on a field trip today. It’s Alaska so it was a hike. In the rain. It was the longest 2 hours ever.

    The brownies look delicious and I hope your house/electricity is back to normal soon!

    Very glad to hear that you and yours are doing well! Even though it’s pretty sucky to have no power. Hopefully everything gets back to normal soon!

  11. Oh Wow! Those brownies look incredible. The frosting really looks awesome and I can’t wait to try. Glad to hear that everyone is okay, but I totally know how you feel about the power being off. The first things I freak out about when the power goes out is my hair dryer and my oven!! Hope it comes on real soon!!!

  12. I am so sorry you are still without power. Your comparison with camping made me laugh. So did talking about your TV looking sad. I hate when we are without power. Good luck on getting it back on and all the clean-up from mean Irene.

    These brownies look fab! I need to do more baking with malted items. 🙂

  13. These looks yummy!
    Around here we lost power on Saturday night but thank God we had everything back on Sunday morning. I figure everything around my house was fine until I spoke with my friend who leaves 20 minutes from me and told me that some of her neighbors had to be evacuated by the fire department.
    Then on Monday, my 20 minutes commute to work turn out to be 3 hours! all roads were pretty much close, after almost peeing in myself ( you know a prego thing this last few weeks) I made it to the office to find out that the ceiling was broken and damage most of our computers and desk.

    I am so sorry to hear about your power situation, I will be pulling my hair out! I hope you can get it soon.

  14. I love whoppers!! These look so go amazing and chocolaty. Sorry to hear you still have no power. We are in North Eastern PA and while our power just flickered in and out all day Sunday several surrounding towns still having no power and some had their bridges washed out. What a mess. Hope your all hanging in there.

  15. Good golly! Those brownies… pretty sure my husband would bow down to these. He’s a whopper-a-holic!

    Hang in there friend! Crossin’ my fingers that your power is on soon.


  16. *…and Nellie Oleson works at the power company…* and (MIL) *She presently has power and internet and is always more than willing to make me indebted to her * had me laughing out loud.
    Hope your power comes back on soon. In the meantime, baking at your MIL’s certainly turns out some gorgeous treats.

    Not having power sucks and you have all my thoughts and prayers. We lost it over the weekend due to Irene and its awful when its beautiful outside and it just feels like there isn’t any reason why you don’t have power. Maybe soon!
