I decided to create a little bunny treat. I am a huge malted milk ball fan and one of my favorite Easter candy’s (besides Peeps) are those yummy malted milk ball eggs. I am also a big fan of throwing malted milk powder into my baked goods so I decided to combine the two in some yummy bunny brittle. Bunny brittle is a yummy and addictive thin and crispy version of a cookie.
I love this stuff and it always disappears quickly when I take it to a party. I have several other versions of it on the blog too that are just as yummy! Here, here and here !The dough is similar to a shortbread (there are no eggs). I added in malted milk powder, mini chocolate chips and crushed up malted milk ball eggs. Of course if it is not Easter time and the eggs aren’t available in the stores just use regular malted milk balls!
The dough may seem a little dry initially but just keep mixing it until the dough comes together. Bake it until it is golden brown, you want them to be crispy and crunchy. I discovered that the malted milk version doesn’t get quite a crispy as some of the others I make due to the malted milk balls melting in the dough but it is still just as delicious, just a little chewier.
After the brittle cooled I drizzled it with some yellow Wilton Melts and then sprinkled a cup of crushed malted milk ball eggs over the top.
What bunny could resist a piece of Malted Milk Ball Bunny Brittle?
