A lot of my recipes are inspired by dishes or drinks I have tried at some point and not been able to get out of my head. This particular one is very loosely based on a thick chocolate malted milkshake I enjoyed in London some time ago. I love the taste of malted milk powder when added to hot chocolate or milkshake ( I typically use Horlicks or a supermarket branded version), it adds a depth of flavour and seems to enhance the chocolate. The addition of Irish cream was just to make this more of a grown up drink and ..well I love Irish cream.
This is a very indulgent, calorie laden treat. It would be ideal served in place of a dessert at an informal dinner party.
