Does your sweetheart have a soft spot for a decadently delicious Chocolate Stout? Then surprise your sweetie this Valentine’s Day with these sweet Chocolate Malt treats.

Made with Briess Chocolate Malt—a favorite malt for Chocolate Stout beers—our Briess Chocolate Malt Cakes (adorable as a Bundt, mini Bundt or cupcakes) are amazing when topped with Briess Malt Glaze! Serve with your Valentine’s favorite Chocolate Stout Beer and it’ll be a Valentine’s Day to remember 🙂

We add creamy, malty flavor and mouthfeel to the glaze with Briess Malted Milk Powder. Did you know that Briess produces Malted Milk Powder from our own malt? And Briess Malt is made with barley grown just for Briess. That’s how we ensure top quality From Seed to Specialty™.
