Well, I have kind of fallen down on my Baked Sunday Mornings participation. Things have been a little crazy around here and the idea of making a super complicated recipe hasn't be that appealing. However, when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it. I love Whoppers, milk chocolate, malt and pudding, so it seemed like this recipe had everything. To top it off, it was super easy. It was calling my name.
I wish I could say I was in love with these, since they seemed so promising. However, mine came out way too salty and it overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the milk chocolate (public service announcement -- you have to use really good milk chocolate, not just a Hershey bar. I used Scharffen Berger). It seems that the Baked boys like things much saltier than I do, since this has happened before. I hope to try them again and cut the salt a bunch.
The other issue I had was totally my fault, in that I took them out of the oven too early. After 25 minutes they were still pretty jiggly, but I thought they might set in the fridge. Turns out that was not too be. They weren't totally watery, but they did not have that custardy texture I was looking for. I haven't given up hope though, and will be trying these again one day.
