Chocolate Malted Cookies Recipe

These cookies are the next best thing to a good old-fashioned malted milk. With malted milk powder, chocolate syrup, plus chocolate chips and chunks, these are the best cookies I've ever tasted…and with six kids, I've made a lot of cookies over the years! —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 14, 2014

I wish I could give it a 5 star review. I really wanted to like these cookies especially with how many people like them. There is WAY to much shortening in this recipe. Like others mine spread out super flat and were greasy. So greasy in fact that there was oil hanging out on the cookies sheet after removing cookies. Very disappointing because ingredients are not cheap. I would like to know how these turned out so great for most people. The cookies did not look like picture at all!

Best chocolate chip cookies ever! My mom said she'll never make regular chocolate chip cookies again and I agree! The kids loved them too :-)

These were yummy. I followed the recipe except for 2 things. I used real butter (unsalted) and in place of the 1 cup of milk chocolate chips, I used slightly crushed malted milk balls. (I still used the 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chunks.) They turned out great, had a good "malted" flavor and my family devoured them. I plan on making a batch or two for our church bake sale next month. I am sure they will sell out fast.

MY REVIEW

I have used this recipe from time to time and these cookies are excellent! I HAVE made adjustments on the recipe-I used 1/2 brown sugar & 1/2 white & I used 1 tsp. salt. I also just used 1-1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips & I used Ovaltine malted milk powder! I also greased the baking sheets for easier removal of the cookies! The recipe made 3-1/2 dozencookies as I made smaller balls of dough! Thank you, Teri Rasey for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! This recipe is a keeper for me & in fact I prepared them today for our chapel picnic tomorrow! Dawn E. Lowenstein
