Malted Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is inspired by the Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies recipe Grandma Mo sent me. After that unfortunate flop, I decided a malted milk cookie is a wonderful concept that needs to be further tested. So I took one of my favorite chocolate cookie recipes and crossed it with the Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate Cookie recipe to get this:

Ingredients:

  • 4 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 c. cocoa
  • 1 c. malted milk powder
  • 1 c. butter, room temperature
  • 1 c. vegetable shortening (like Crisco)
  • 4 c. dark brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package milk chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Cream butters and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla,  cocoa and malted milk powder. Add dry ingredients. Mix in chips.
  2. Scoop onto cookie sheets by the teaspoon full. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes. Makes approximately 32 cookies.

I hate to toot my own horn but these cookies are genius. The malted milk flavor seems to reduce when you bake the cookies so I think they could use a bit more malted milk flavor. But other than that, I have no complaints.
