I can’t believe that I haven’t posted a recipe since Christmas Eve! I never intended to take January off from posting, but it happened and that’s ok! Let’s bring in February with the best: cookies! Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies, that is. A standard chocolate chip cookie gets a face lift with the addition of ever-so-decadent malt powder. Dreams really do come true.
When making malts, I’m the type of person that not only puts a generous amount of malt powder inside my malt, but also a nice dusting of that velvety goodness on top before I dunk my straw in. YOLO, right?! Adding malt powder to this batch of chocolate chip cookies takes the flavor to next level. You get a since of creamy and nuttiness as you sink your teeth into the cookie.
I vote that you should make a batch of these Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies, pull out the blender and whip up some decadent malts, invite me over and we can be best friends forever as we sip malts and eat Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies together. It’s like one of those perfect movie scenes that end in happy dancing, rainbows and sunshine.
Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 18-20 cookies 1x
A standard chocolate chip cookie gets a face lift with the addition of ever-so-decadent malt powder. Dreams really do come true.
- 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons malt powder
- 11 oz chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add in one egg at a time, making sure to wipe down the edges of the bowl in between each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
- Mix in the flour, baking soda, salt and malt powder on low speed until a cookie dough forms. Add in the chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Using a tablespoon scoop, scoop the cookie dough out onto a non-greased baking sheet, placing them a couple inches apart. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
- Allow the cookies to cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 10 minutes
