I spent the weekend in Park City, Utah with some of my blogging buddies at the first Better Blog Retreat. I had a ton of fun and will write about my weekend soon. But first, I need to get caught up on life and play with my little pea. Oh yeah, a nap would be nice too. The nap probably won’t happen so instead I think I will bake Malted Chocolate Chip Whoppers Cookies. It’s Monday and I could use a few cookies to get me through the day!

I made these cookies a few months ago and Josh has been asking for them on a regular basis. He LOVES these cookies. I am happy to bake them because I love them too, but I don’t tell Josh that. I just let him think I am baking the cookies just for him because I love him so much:)

The secret ingredient is malted milk powder. I guess it’s not really a secret since the cookies are named Malted Chocolate Whopper Cookies. I gave away the secret!

The malted milk powder adds an extra layer of deliciousness to the cookies. You can find malted milk powder at most grocery stores. It is usually by the instant breakfast ย powders and chocolate milk powders. Once you find it, you may want to stock up because you will want to be making endless batches of these cookies. Just a little heads up!

I also chopped up some Whoppers, malted milk balls, and tossed them into the malted chocolate chip cookie dough. Double the malt flavor, double the fun!

The cookies are soft, chewy, and pretty much irresistible. And if you want to dip the cookies into a chocolate malt shake, you go right ahead! Talk about malt madness!

Make Monday a good day-bake a batch of Malted Chocolate Chip Whoppers Cookies. And remember, these cookies are for Josh. Don’t tell him I plan on stealing a few for myself. I need a cookie fix today:)

  1. I love the texture of these cookies! Big, smooth, and with some crevices near the edges. I have never tried malted milk powder in cookies but have wanted to – many times. Great job on these.

    And the retreat. Would have loved to do something like that! All the IG pics were making me wish I was having that kind of fun weekend!

  2. We love your work, it’s great, our more luck. And the pictures are perfect. We would love to publicize your work on our website, always with your permission. For visitors you may know. If it is good contact by email.
    Thank you very much for sharing your work with all those who love the world of pastry.

  3. I have got to get on the malted milk powder band wagon! These cookies look so big and delicious! I have to try them!

    Your weekend sounds like so much fun. All the instagram pics were incredible!

  4. My Mom used to make me a Whopper Pie for my birthday every year. It was so yummy. Those Whopper cookies look absolutely decadent! You can come to my house any Monday you want! I can’t wait to hear about the conference.

  5. I’m a bit confused.. I just took these out of the oven .. mine aren’t as light colored and pretty as yours. Mine really took on the color of the malted milk powder.. oh well ๐Ÿ™‚ They are a great cookie .. the texture is really good .. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. YUM! I can’t wait to try these. How do you get your cookies to look so uniform in shape and size? Also, did you take them out prior to them getting golden brown on purpose or was their another reason? Thanks!

  7. I was beyond excited when I saw this post!
    I couldn’t even wait to use the recipe so… I made them tonight!
    I am delighted to say they are DELICIOUS.
    I used light brown sugar and chopped up some mondo maltballs from Harry and David. Baked for 10 minutes and they came out perfect!
    Thank you for yet another great recipe!

  8. Since I’m not from the US (I’m from the Netherlands) I cannot make them. We don’t know a thing such as malted milk powder. Sure stores sell milk powder (especcially for babies) but not malted milk powder. Stores do actually sell chocolate candies like those (they’re called Maltesers here) and I could add those to chocolate chip cookies… which have to be gigantic because of the size of the Maltesers… great idea, looking forward to trying that. Thank you for the inspiration!

  9. These cookies look fabulous! I just whipped up a batch of Malted Milk Cupcakes, and loved the flavor added by the malt powder Chocolate Chip cookies were next on my list — so glad to see your recipe pop up in my Feedly — can’t wait to try it!
