Tasty Tuesdays- Malts

Malts are something my husband grew up on. I had my first one after we were married. I used to come up with excuses for my sister-in-law to come over and then all of the ingredients would 'magically' appear on the table and I would tell her that it would be shame for her to not make them. After we moved out of state a while later, we had to learn to make them for ourselves, except I still try to get my husband to make them. For some reason, treats always taste better when I didn't have to put in all the work. :)

You will need:
1 large cup of milk
5 heaping tsp. malt
5 heaping tsp chocolate powder
Lots of ice cream (The way my father-in-law puts the amount is, "more ice cream than you think you could possibly need.)

Blend and serve in cups. This amount made enough for my husband and I both to have a cupful and a small cup for our daughter with some left over.
What kinds of treats did you grow up on?

I've never gotten the whole malt thing. Why not skip the malt and just have a milkshake?

Food *always* tastes better when somebody else makes it for you! Coffee especially. And darn you - now I want a malt. LOL

I don't think I've ever had a malt... Where do you get malt? I don't think I've noticed it in the grocery store, but thats probably because I wasn't looking. :)

I haven't had a chocolate malt for years! I used to always order 'hamburger, fries, and chocolate malt' when my parents would take us out to eat. It's a wonder I didn't weigh 300 pounds!
