TWD: Malted Milk Ball Cookies

Rachel, of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart, chose this week’s TWD challenge, and a tasty one it was -- Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops.



A few months ago I purchased a bag of dark chocolate espresso malted milk balls from a local store. They were waiting for just the right cookie, and these Chocolate Whopper Drops were just the ticket. I used Ovaltine for the malt powder, since that’s what was in the pantry, and in this house, there is never such a thing as too much chocolate. The cookies disappeared in a flash, so clearly I need to make another trip to the store for these special malted milk balls, although, taking a cue from Susan, I might just have to try the strawberry ones next!





Be sure and visit the other TWD blogs to see the many variations of these cookies.

I know what you mean....too much chocolate??? Is that something like too much money? We loved this cookie, too.

I'm just wondering how a bag of chocolate espresso malt balls survived in your house for months! Glad you liked the cookies too.

Thanks, without you I would have never found malted milk balls at all. They seem not to be very common here.

Whoa - dark chocolate espresso malted milk balls? All my superiority for being able to get malted milk balls in bulk just evaporated into greed to get those. Dangit.

So those malted milk balls sound amazing and I'm not even a fan of malt! Your cookies are beautiful. thanks for the tip (above) for your source. I may have to order some nut flour.

Definitely give the strawberry ones a try. I personally couldn't taste it much b/c of the overwhelming chocolate but maybe if I had cut it up into bits it would have been distributed more evenly? Glad everyone liked the cookies! Great job!

OMG, I think my DBF would kill a bag of those dark chocolate espresso malted milk balls! I'll have to see if I can get them delivered to Europe! I'm sure your cookies tasted even better because of them!

Oooh, fun! I love being able to use something I've bought even though I didn't have any idea what to use it for when I bought it.
