Special Feature: Products Sally Recommends
A Chocolate Malted
2/3 cup malted milk powder
1/2 cup cold milk
3 Tbsp. good-quality chocolate syrup
About 1-1/2 cups (three-fourths of a pint) best-quality chocolate ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet
Combine malted milk powder, cold milk, and chocolate syrup in blender container. Cover and blend briefly on a low speed till well-mixed. Scrape sides of container with rubber spatula.
Soften ice cream by removing carton lid and liner (if any) and placing in microwave at 50% (medium) power just until somewhat softened (times will differ based on your microwave oven and whether you use ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet; start with 10 seconds if using a full pint; you can always microwave it for a few seconds more if necessary). Working quickly, add softened ice cream to blender in chunks (there's no need to measure the ice cream--just use about three-fourths of a pint). Cover; blend on highest speed just until smooth. Serve immediately.
2 to 4 servings
