Jack in the Box serves this out of this world Malt Crunch Ice Cream Shake.  It is seasonal or something, so I created this copycat version.  You are going to love it!

A classic malt takes me back to simpler times, a time when
things were not so complicated.  Summers spent at the beach with my
family and friends, nothing but boys on the brain.  Times when my biggest concerns were finding cassette tapes to record my favorite band, Bon Jovi, off the radio.  Times may change, but memories live on.  Every time I enjoy a malt I am magically transported to that time.  Living at home, splurging on a malt from the ice cream shop with my parents, a malt is a true comfort food for me.

Chocolate Malt Crunch Milkshake

Our All American Chocolate Malt is a Chocolate Malt Crunch Ice Cream Milk Shake rich in malt flavor and crunch.  A special ingredient really enhances our favorite flavors.  A creamy malt with a smooth chocolate flavor, we love it and we know you will too!

With love from our kitchen table to yours!  XO

  1. YAY! You did it. And Chad managed to get a heck of a picture. That cherry is so perfect it doesn't even look real!

  2. Malted milk balls are my FAVORITE! My grandfather buys them from a gourmet chocolate shoppe each Christmas, and I look forward to them each year! I must try the same flavors in a shake. I've actually never had a malted shake before!

  3. My husband loves malted milk balls and would adore this! I however, want to thank you for the beautiful memory you shared. Very nice times indeed! I miss the easier days – little did we know those days would be so special in our memories. Have a great week!

  4. Oh, this looks incredible!! Gorgeous picture!! Chocolate malts are one of my favorites and I can't wait to try your version. Thank you both for posting!

  5. you always amaze me. Your recipes are just so interesting and new and different and I love it! this shake screams rich and simply delicious

  6. You're dating yourself when you note cassette tapes and Bon Jovi. hahaha. I'm so glad this is a MALT instead of a milkshake.

  7. I'm always amazed when people know what malted milk balls are, but have never heard of a chocolate malt. I must be getting REALLY old.

  8. The malts I used to make years ago did not contain malted milk balls. cherries or vanilla extract and we used to sell about three to four hundred malts a day at our dairy store.

    1. oh believe me, I know. We have made old fashioned malts for years. This recipe is a copycat recipe for a malt that we enjoyed at Jack in the Box. You should try it, its a nice treat! Enjoy.
