    Chef Jean's Note:

    "The chocolate drink Ovomaltine (known in the USA as "Ovaltine") originates in Switzerland and enjoys ongoing popularity, particularly with young people. Aside from being a beverage, the powder is also eaten sprinkled on top of a slice of buttered bread." Found this on wikipedia...not exactly a recipe, but worth a try! The ingrediant amounts can be adjusted to your liking.

      Like lazyme, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this -- I like Ovaltine as a hot drink, but I didn't know how it would be as a bread sprinkle. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. In the spirit of using ZWT leftover stuff, I used momaphet's Food Processor French Bread for the bread, and Debbwl's Orange Butter for the butter (very nice if you like chocolate and orange together). Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7

      This was simple, to the point, and quite good. Didn't know the reaction here would be, but it sure worked out well for the 4 of us, as it made for a great football snack. Made for PRMR tag.

      What a nice little snack!! I liked this more than I thought I would. I sprinkled the Ovaltine lightly, but will say where it was more concentrated was where I liked it best. I had no idea Ovaltine was from Switzerland! Made for ZWT - Count Dracula and His Hot Bites.
