I think I have a recipe in my Alain Ducasse dessert book....I'll look it up for you.

I would be very interested in that recipe too, having tried to make malted milk balls myself without much success.........

I have made them before, but can't remember the ratio. Just temper white chocolate and malt powder. Those were the only two ingredients for the filling and were quite good.

you can also try a seafoam formula and wiggle in some malt powder.
bake first, ask questions later.
Oooh food, my favorite!

That's basically what I tried before.....sorta worked but the candy didn't have the right crunch that a true malted milk ball does. I think the big candy makers do it under high pressure or something.....at least that's what I've heard.

I found a similar recipe to what you're talking about and in that recipe the ratio was 1:1 (as in, one cup melted white chocolate and 1 cup malted milk powder).

still waiting to hear what the Alain Ducasse recipe says...

Okay---here's the formula...

1 cup of white chocolate
1 cup of malted milk powder

Melt chocolate and stir in malted milk powder. Form into balls and dip in milk chocolate.

Hope this helps.

I tried it today and I'll be darned if it didn't work. Closest I've ever come to the real thing! I recommend it Jessiquina!

I'm not a pastry chef but I love to bake at home and I am going to try the recipe out! I have a h&s meeting on Monday so I'm going to hit the bulk barn before the meeting and get me some malted milk powder!
OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

Can you give the step by step recipe for it? Exactly what do I do? Hah I am by no means a chef. Only a girl who likes to cook.

a lot of these thread posts are just too joke-y; and not funny, anyway, unsubsribe before it's too late to save your online reputation

It's really that easy?

I do believe I will give this a try. Thanks for the recipe.

Any other "should-know" info before I take this on?

Thanks!

Interesting, thanks for sharing. Were they crunchy enough? My dad and children would like these maybe I'll try them out. I have never had the love for malted milk balls but homemade I will definitely try.
