Chocolate Malted Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

My fiance and I love the flavor of malt (malt ice cream cups at Wrigley Field ... mmmm!), and these chocolate bar cookies are really a treat! It's a cinch to whip up a batch, but not as easy to stop eating them!

These were amazing. I used regular malt powder instead of the chocolate kind. The frosting was so good and I will use it for other desserts. Thank you.
