Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies – Deliciously thick, soft-baked cookies infused with malted milk powder, and loaded with Maltesers and chocolate chips!
Who else is a huuuge fan of Maltesers? (I believe you have Whoppers in the US?)
They’re delicious little malted milk balls coated in milk chocolate… Mmmmm. Well, I made cookies with them! Yep. Today, I bring you my Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies!
These cookies are scrumptiously thick, soft, and chewy, and are loaded with Maltesers and chocolate chips. I added some malted milk powder to the mix, to add an extra kick of malty goodness paired with the Maltesers. Believe me, you are going to LOVE these cookies!
What I love about my favourite cookie dough recipe is it doesn’t need to chill in the fridge before baking. Simply prepare the dough, scoop into balls, and bake! Or, you can make extra to roll into balls, keep in the freezer, and bake off whenever the cookie craving strikes. Who doesn’t love freshly baked cookies? 🙂
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I do!
