These Malted Chocolate Cookies are cookie perfection! It’s always a good day to make cookies around my house. You never have to twist my arm much to whip up a batch for any occasion 🙂  The boys and I were playing around with a chocolate cookie idea and these malted chip cookies were a huge hit! They have the perfect chewy texture that we love with bites full of chocolate chips throughout. Next time  you are in the mood for making cookies, be sure to give our latest creation a try! Happy cookie baking!

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

      Attention all you malt lovers: when I was a kid, Carnation made a chocolate malted ice cream bar, with chocolate malted milk ice cream center, dipped in dark chocolate and covered with chunks of crushed malted milk balls. I still remember it even though it was more than 50 years ago! Sadly, they no longer make it.

    The recipe says 2 sticks of butter but in your picture it looks like they are the quarter cup sticks of butter. Please clarify if it’s 1 cup of butter. Thank you! I can’t wait to make the cookies!

    Mindy Vegter says:

    Hey Jenny, they don’t sell malted milk powder where I live, or anywhere near where I live for that matter, could Ovaltine be used as a substitute or should I make my own malted milk powder?

    These look absolutely amazing and I’m so excited to try them! One quick question though? Your recipe says semi sweet chocolate chips, but the picture shows milk chocolate….is one better than the other in your opinion??
    Thanks so much for all your recipes – I’ve never had one that wasn’t fabulous!

    If you use salted butter, does the extra salt get omitted? Thanks!
