Chocolate Malt Brownies with Vanilla Malt Buttercream

Growing up I loved adding Nestle Quik and Carnation Malted Milk powder to my milk, even better, making a chocolate malt milkshake!  So, thinking of chocolate malt and brownies this is my latest baking brainchild.

Chocolate Malt Brownies:
1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 Tbl water
3 eggs, beaten
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup malt powder
3/4 cup baking cocoa (I used half reg. and half special dark)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1½ cups chopped walnuts, divided
1½ cups coarsely chopped Whoppers(5 oz box), divided

Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray a 13×9 inch pan with nonstick spray.  In large bowl, stir togetherby hand, sugar, butter, and water.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  In a smaller bowl, stir together flour, malt powder, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, and stir into sugar/butter mixture.  Fold in 3/4 cup walnuts and 3/4 cup Whoppers.  Spread into prepared pan.  Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until desired brownie doneness. Cool completely in pan.

Vanilla Malt Buttercream:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup malt powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbl milk

With electric mixer, beat together butter, malt powder, vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk until fluffy.  Frost completely cooled brownies.  Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup chopped walnuts and 3/4 cup chopped Whoppers over frosting.  Cut into bars.
