How to Make the Perfect Chocolate Malt, According to Sweet Moses

Step 4: Add the Malt Powder

Add approximately one ounce of malt powder to the mix. While you probably won't be able to find this ingredient at your local grocery store, Sweet Moses sells small packages, or you can order it online.

For a traditional malt, there's no real substitute for malt powder, Moreau says. Instant malted milk or liquid malt flavoring, both of which you can typically find at the store, just won't cut it.

Step 5: Mix

Moreau uses a traditional spindle milkshake mixer, which mixes a little differently than your regular ol' blender. If you're a serious malt connoisseur, Moreau says, this piece is worth the investment because it simultaneously mixes and aerates the ingredients. 

If you are using a blender, it's important to alternate between pulsing the blades and hand mixing with a spoon to maintain a thick, balanced consistency. Mix for about one minute total. 

Step 6: Coax Your Mixture into a Glass

Your mixture should need a little help sliding into the glass, Moreau says. If it pours out too easily, you've over-mixed your malt.

Step 7: Add the Final Touches

Add a healthy dose of whipped cream to your malt.

Top with a cherry.

Serve with a spoon and a straw- you'll def need both.

And enjoy! You've just created the perfect chocolate malt.

You can find this particular item on the menu at Sweet Moses. It costs $5.50.
