Pull up a stool to the soda shop counter. Then get ready to have your tastebuds blown away. A standard chocolate chip cookie gets a facelift with the addition of ever-so-delicious malt powder. The malt powder brings out the flavor of the chocolate and adds a layer of complexity to these malted chocolate chip cookies. Dreams really do come true.
These malted milk cookies combine the best of two time-tested classic desserts: The original chocolate chip cookie and a classic malted milkshake. Chocolatey and nutty. Chewy and decadent. Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Just try not to break out into a happy tap dance. We dare you.
Why KJ Loves
Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies
“Hi, my name is KJ and I’m addicted to malt powder.” Haha! The love is real! Malt powder sends these cookies over the top – and then the additional crushed malt balls?! Holy moly! Dunk these fun cookies into your favorite malt to have a malt extravaganza. The perfect dessert for the Summer season!
Malted Cookie Tips & Tricks
A medium-sized cookie scoop keeps your cookies consistent—both in size, and in dough texture, since it isn’t being handled by warm hands.
When your chocolate malt cookies come out of the oven, use the back of your spatula to gently press the cookies into a perfectly round shape right after they come out of the oven. That is, if you want that “pristine” round shape. If you like the homestyle look, just leave them as is!
How to Serve
Gonna throw an obvious one out there. But really…when you love malt powder, what could be better than a double dessert with double malt?
As an ice cream sandwich
This delicious take is a dreamy combo of creamy and chewy—all in one portable, handheld treat!
A la carte!
By the dozen. Because we’ve decided that’s the serving size for this recipe. No way you can eat just one, so we’re going to go ahead and give you permission to go back for seconds…a few times.
