Swiss Snack-Bread, Butter and Ovaltine

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef Jean

"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 Recipe#114709 for the bread, and Debbwl's Recipe#404355 for the butter (very nice if you like chocolate and orange together). Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
