A creamy and delicious chocolate malted mousse topped with cocoa whipped cream and malted milk balls.
Place a large mixing bowl and beaters in the refrigerator to chill.
To prepare the mousse, combine ¼ cup of whipping cream with the milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate in a small saucepan and melt over low heat until smooth, stirring constantly. Add in the malted milk powder, liqueur, and vanilla and stir to combine. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
While the chocolate mixture is cooling, place the 2 ounces of malted milk balls into a zipper seal bag and crush with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs. Set aside.
Using the chilled mixing bowl and beaters, beat 1¾ cups of whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Stir approximately ½ cup of the whipped cream into the room temperature melted chocolate mixture and stir to just combine. Then fold the crushed malted milk balls and melted chocolate mixture into the remaining whipped cream, and mix to just combine.
Spoon the mousse into 6-8 individual serving bowls or dishes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or overnight).
When ready to serve, in a medium chilled bowl, beat remaining 1 cup of whipping cream, sugar and cocoa powder until soft peaks form. Spoon over the chilled chocolate mousse. Top with malted additional milk balls (we cut the milk balls in half before using as garnish on the mousse.)

This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
