Katie is a terrific sempstress, and she made the cutest rag doll for my daughter on her 4th birthday, and so I really wanted to do something special for her! Happy birthday, Katie!
Malted Milk Chocolate Frosting
3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup malted milk powder (such as ovaltine original)
6 ounces milk chocolate chips (recommended: guittard)
Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between, until melted. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Once the chocolate has cooled, place the butter on the bowl of your mixer with the paddle attachment and beat on medium high for 3 minutes. Add the powdered sugar, malted milk powder, and salt. Beat on low until combined, and then pn medium high for 3 more minutes. Add the cooled chocolate and beat on medium until fully incorporated. Use to frost your cake immediately.
