Chocolate Malt Cupcake

by foodlikecake

Ever had a chocolate malt? Well, I haven’t, but I’m pretty sure if I ever did these cupcakes would taste exactly like one. There’s malted milk powder in the cupcake and in the frosting. The chocolate malt frosting is creamy, dreamy, full of flavor and perfection to pipe. These cupcakes would be great for a party!
