I was at the grocery store for a mid-week stop to grab a few essentials and saw a giant display of candy boxes on sale.
As soon as I saw the Whoppers, I remembered a recipe for chocolate malt cupcakes and decided it was time to give that another run.
I made chocolate cupcakes last night using the soda cake method. When I make cupcakes mid-week, I always bake them in the evening and frost them the next morning. It's easier for me to avoid sampling the frosting that way--early in the day I always have such good intentions--and it only takes about 15 minutes of my morning to put together.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup chocolate malt powder
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon milk
I added the frosting and finished them up with the Whoppers candy and some chocolate sprinkles:
