Malt Ball Fudge: easy delicious fudge recipe with WHOPPERS and Ovaltine! YUM

So, good news! My house is sold. This next month is going to be crazy trying to find a new one (yeah, probably number one on our to-do list), packing, and getting, everything squared away to move (doctor records, kids schools, etc). If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you can see my crazy life behind the scenes!

I have to chuckle though, when people were looking at our house I wanted to be a fly on the wall when they opened my pantries. Yes, pantries, as in plural. We have a regular pantry in our kitchen that holds all of our canned goods, cereal, snacks. You know, the stuff most people put in a pantry. Then behind our kitchen we took a coat closet and turned it into a second pantry.

This one is for all my baking supplies. You know the 25lb bag of flour, 10 lb bags of sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar. And the chocolate. I buy my chocolate chips by the case….so there is probably a dozen bags of white chocolate morsels, a dozen butterscotch, a dozen milk chocolate, a dozen semi sweet.

And the candy. This is what probably looks insane. BAGS and bags of candy. For every holiday. You know, as a food blogger I’m creating recipes already for fall comfort food and Christmas. #foodbloggerproblems
Malt Ball Fudge: make a pan of this easy, delicious fudge today!
In an effort to start thinning out my baking pantry, I’m trying to use up some of my supplies. And by supplies, I of course mean candy and chocolate.

Making fudge is so easy, and it’s the perfect treat to keep in the fridge year round!

I found a box of malted milk balls (WHOPPERS) in my pantry and immediately knew I wanted to make a Malt Ball Fudge recipe. In addition to the candy, I added some Rich Chocolate Ovaltine to the fudge (I sound like a commercial when I say that in my head). My kids love adding ovaltine to their milk, gives it a little extra vitamins vs chocolate syrup. So basically, I’m saying, this fudge has vitamins. You’re welcome!

I shared this recipe today over at Food Fanatic! Stop on over!!

Oh, no. You used Ovaltine (a.k.a. my childhood obsession)! Now I have to make these. Darn it!
Congrats on selling the house! More adventures to come, right?

This sounds awesome!

If I was looking at someone’s house and they had 2 pantries, I would be like SOLD!!! And if they’re not bakers or cooks, I’m sure they’re inspired by your kitchen. Wanna know something creepy? The people we sold our last house to…they decorated it the EXACT same way we had it. We saw photos on Facebook. Creepy, right?! Don’t stalk your buyers, lol. she even had a tray of cookies in the kitchen! I’mma be worried if she starts a blog, too!

Anyway, congrats again on your house selling!

Yay! Congrats on selling your house! I am also in the process of moving (from one apt to another) and I am with you on the cleaning out the pantry. Might I say though, that if your pantry created these wonderful pieces of fudge, that you must have the most MAGICAL pantry in all the land! ;)

I never buy Ovaltine, would it be possible to replace it with cocoa powder?

Cocoa powder is unsweetened unlike Ovaltine, so it definitely would make a difference. Ovaltine also has a malted flavor. You might be better off taking some of your malt balls, pulsing them into a fine powder in your food processor and using that!

How many calories in the malt ball fudge? Not to a a killjoy but…
