Malted Milk Balls

One of the greatest joys in life comes from eating a bag of malted milk balls (you know, like Whoppers). As much as I love the chocolate-mint combination in my candy, malted milk balls may be my favorite chocolate-covered snack item. Perhaps it’s because I have them infrequently, so I don’t get tired of them. Or perhaps it’s just because they’re perfection in chocolate ball form. Whatever the case, they’re a little bite of heaven.

I’ve found that the best way to eat one is to bite it exactly in half, because half a malted milk ball gives you the same pleasure as a whole one. Therefore, by biting it in half, you automatically double your pleasure ratio for each ball. That’s good ROI!

During my November trip to Chicago, I stopped into Marshall Fields and was mighty happy to see that their candy was 25% off. About 2.3 seconds later, I had a pound of malted milk balls in my hand. Though I felt like I was snacking on them continuously, the bag lasted me almost two weeks!
