Whopper Brownies with Chocolate Malt Buttercream Frosting

Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you are having a great week! Are you staying cool? It is sweltering here but I did manage to bake these early in the morning before we reached record highs. The good news is that it is supposed to go down a degree or two and now I have these tasty treats to keep me company this weekend.
