A brownie recipe in honor of English Inventer, William Horlick, who invented malted milk in 1883. These delicious brownies were found in Esther Brody's "The 250 BEST Brownies, Bars & Squares" Cookbook. For an added treat, chop malted milk balls or a malted milk chocolate bar into pieces and sprinkle over the top.

i can't give a rating so i' ll just comment. Baked them for 30 min and they were overbaked, they turned out dry. Next time i'll reduce the baking time. The frosting lacks malt taste, i was expecting more. I also drizzled some chocolate, to give a nice presentation
