Searching for a recipe for a nougat-like filling that resembled the nougat of a Snickers bar, I sought help from CC members. Likim responded with a suggestion that proved to be a winner: malted milk mix. My husband’s comment upon taste testing the final cake-filling combination was, “That groom’s cake is going to out-shine the bride’s cake!”
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 16 oz. container of marshmallow cream
- 1 cup malted milk mix
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3-4 cups powdered sugar
- 5-6 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
Cream butter, shortening, and marshmallow cream together. Add vanilla and cream or milk and continue to cream until well incorporated. Mix in malkted milk and then add powdered sugar until filling is desired sweetness and consistancy.
Serving suggestion: Use with caramel and chopped peanuts to fill a chocolate cake.
