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

This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe....

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

These are really good. Very chocolatey but not that different from regular chocolate chip cookies. I couldn't even taste the malted milk powder and I that was the reason I wanted to make this because I love the taste of malted milk. Maybe it was overwhelmed by all the chocolate. I would just as soon make my regular tollhouse cookies.
