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.

Learning how to make chocolate 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!!

  1. Martha Slate, I thought the same thing but if you look to the right of the recipe, you will see a bar that you can move up and down with your cursor to see the rest of the recipe. Hope this helps. 🙂

  2. This recipe sounds amazing! Unfortunately, a Google ad is covering half of the directions, making the recipe totally useless! So very sad.

  3. I’m not a fan of white chocolate. Is it worth it for this recipe? How would chocolate chips change the recipe? (Would they overpower the malt flavor?) Thanks!

    1. Chocolate would totally overpower this recipe. There is enough Ovaltine in here to give it some chocolate malt flavor and not white chocolate!

  4. I’ve made this twice. The first batch I scooped out 1.5 cups of the crushed Whoppers and realized too late that I saved 1 c of malt ‘dust’for the top. Oops! I did not make that mistake the second time! I was excited to see this recipe as I will share it with my many siblings for a Christmas gift and Whoppers was one of our late father’s favorite. Thank you for this great recipe.

    1. 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!

  5. I bet everyone was just jealous of all the amazing things you have in your pantry!! Congrats on selling your house- and good luck finding one!!

  6. 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! 😉

  7. Vitamin fudge! I love it! I can’t wait to try this. That malted milk ball flavor is so stinkin’ good!

  8. I spotted this recipe on Pinterest and almost died. So much goodness! Pinned.

  9. Your baking pantry sounds like one for a commercial kitchen! haha Congrats on selling your house! This fudge sounds delicious with all that malt flavor, and I love that you used Ovaltine in it. 🙂

    1. I know, it’s quite ridiculous! Hopefully my next kitchen has plenty of pantry space!

  10. Looks oh so good! My kids would have this gone in no time flat! Pinned.
    Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

  11. 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!

  12. I love this Malt Ball fudge! As soon as I saw it on Instagram, I knew it would be a winner!

  13. I went through a malt/malt ball phase over the winter hardcore 🙂 I was so into it! Seeing this makes me crave it again. Looks delish! Pinned

  14. 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?
