From Betty Crocker Easy Get-Togethers, this sounds like a fun make-ahead dessert for a crowd. Cooking time is freezing time.

Had this at a friend's yesterday ... it was yummy and so easy. She used chocolate whipped topping and no hot fudge. I'll be making this soon!

WOW - This was great! My family loves malt but it's so hard to find good recipes with a strong malt flavor. This was easy and would be great for a crowd. I did add some extra malted milk powder to the whipped topping and crushed malted balls. This is now a staple in our house. Thanks so very much for posting.
