Chocolate Malt Frosting

Chocolate Malt Frosting

Step 1

Combine the butter, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder and ovaltine in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and cream together on medium-high for 5 to 7 minutes, until the mixture is smooth and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Step 2

With the mixer on its lowest speed, stream in the milk. crank the mixer up to medium-high and beat for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mixture is silky smooth and a glossy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Use the frosting immediately, or store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
