Summer Favorites: Chocolate Malt Shake

My dad loved those chocolate malted milk ball candies and I can remember my mom buying a great big box of them for the whole family to share.  This chocolate malt shake reminds me of those days.

I originally made this recipe for my chocolate-lovin' husband, but I enjoy it as well - it tastes just like a malted milk ball in a glass!   It's the perfect dessert on a warm summer night.

Chocolate Malt Shake

Makes: 2 Servings

3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
      or caramel syrup
2 cups chocolate ice cream, softened
3 tbs. malted milk powder
whipped cream and grated chocolate, optional

In a blender, mix the first four ingredients until well blended.  Pour into chilled glasses and serve with whipped cream and grated chocolate, if desired.
