Soft and chewy malted chocolate chip cookies with chunks of malted milk ball candies!
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 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:)
