Expert Tips

Make your cupcakes stand out at the next bake sale! Pick up fun foil or fancy, decorated muffin cup liners at cake decorating or party supply stores.

The malted milk balls will be easier to crush if they are frozen. Freeze them in a food-storage plastic bag for about 30 minutes. Then tap the bag with a rolling pin or meat mallet until the balls are coarsely crushed.
