Double Chocolate Chip Malts taste like sipping on frozen malted milk ball candy. A thick, deep chocolate malted milkshake crafted in the classic soda fountain style.
Hey there, Friends! I’ve missed y’all! It’s been crazy-busy here around the Comfortably Domestic house…or should I say houses? Yep, we bought a new house! This will be the fourth house that Bacon Slayer & I have purchased but, God willing, it will be our last. We’re taking the plunge with a little more acreage and room for our very active boys to run. I’m already planning my little plot for the future fruit orchard, the boys have marked the territory for their potential American Ninja Warrior course which they will build with help from their daddy. Daisy is content to just nap in the sun by the pool. (A pool!) And Bacon Slayer? Well, he has an area all mapped out for his childhood-dream–a three-quarter sized hockey rink that will double as my garden space in the summer.
We’ve got it all planned out.
Except for the part that we haven’t technically sold our current home yet. For the first time ever, we’ve taken a leap and done something a little out of order. A slightly major something like owning multiple homes. Oops. We feel that this situation, as with all major events in our lives, is a God driven thing, so we’ll continue to have faith that it will all work out in the end. Just the same, we’d love and appreciate any prayers or good juju on our behalf in this matter.
If you follow along on Instagram, you’ll know that it hasn’t been all work and no play around here. We’ve been on several hikes, experienced the joys of a small town parade, and have been getting back into soccer shape with pick-up games and conditioning before the fall season starts in a few weeks. I’ve managed to find time to bake a few summery pies, and a few loaves of my favorite bread on the planet. I’ve also been working on a lot of new things in the blog pipeline, some of which I’ll be sharing with you very soon.
Enough about me! How’s you’re summer going along? I hope y’all are surviving the heat and having some fun. After a cool start, we’ve actually been experiencing temperatures in the upper 80’s to low 90’s! That may not sound like much to my Southern friends, but let me tell you, Northerners start to melt once it creeps up above 85 degrees. Our ice cream consumption increases in direct correlation with the melt-worthy temperatures.
Hence my reason for sharing a recipe for double chocolate chip malts.
After a soccer scrimmage on one especially hot day, I introduced my boys to the joys of a soda fountain style, with Double Chocolate Chip Malts. Rich, extra creamy chocolate ice cream along with malted milk powder, chocolate syrup, and miniature chocolate chips make for a thick, creamy milkshake that tastes a whole lot like sucking on malted milk ball candies.
The only decision when making Double Chocolate Chip Malts is not whether to make a meal of them–as we did.
But rather, to decide whether they should be savored with a spoon or powered through a straw. My only suggestion is to make Double Chocolate Chip Malts to beat the heat. Make no apologies about when or how they are enjoyed.
