I bet if you polled a group of people and asked what their favorite cookie was they would tell you chocolate chip. So, the only thing better than a classic chocolate chip cookie, is one with a good twist like, perhaps the addition of maybe some chocolate malt?
Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies?? Say what? Say YES PLEASE!
My husband’s favorite evening treat is a chocolate malt. When he orders one at the ice cream shop, he always orders it as “Chocolate malt, not too chocolaty.” These cookies are just that! The original recipe I found from Secrets from the Cookie Princess, called for malt. Not chocolate malt, which is what I had.
Turns out, they were perfect! They had that malt taste, a little extra chocolate addition, but not over the top chocolate, and they just made for a perfect twist on the famous classic chocolate chip cookie.
These cookies freeze well, and I have added a few to our cookie jar here and there since I made them, and the kids devour them. They would be a great addition to your holiday platters, or just perfect for any ‘ol time!
