Donna's Malt Ball Cookies

If you aren't already a reader of Donna - FFW's blog, I highly suggest you become one instantly! She's brilliant! Last week, these malt ball cookies appeared on her site and I thought they were unique and appealing, and since it's PMS time, I decided to make a batch. I didn't use Whoppers as the local overpriced grocery store didn't carry them, so I used Maltesers, which I had a hard time not eating as I was making the cookies.

Malt Ball Cookies (original recipe here)

1 cup salted butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp instant hot chocolate mix (I used my favourite kind, Ghirardelli's Chocolate Mocha)
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
2 cups malted milk balls, chopped

Bake at 375F for 10 - 12 minutes. I scooped using my #70 cookie scoop and got just over three dozen cookies.

These were fan-freakin'-tastic! The dough was nigh on impossible to resist dipping into as I made these, and the coffee flavour from the hot chocolate mix went really well with the malt balls and made for a really tasty cookie.

Thanks Donna-FFW!

I haven't had Malt balls in ages. The mix of white chocolate w/ the Malt looks good.

Add this to the list of things to try.

I agree: Donna's blog is just fabulous (as is yours)! These malt ball cookies look sooo so good! I love how thick and chewy they look, and malt always adds a great texture and flavor!
