TWD: Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops


Yet another cookie for TWD.  I love cookies as much as the next guy, but I'm itching to make some of the other lovely recipes in her book.  And we will, soon.  But for this week,  Rachel of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart (I like that name) selected these Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops.  This cookie uses malt powder in place of half the dry ingredients, which is very different.  I also had chopped up malt balls and chocolate chunks.  Its cakey and very chocolatey, but I must say, I was underwhelmed.  I don't mind malt, but I don't think that there was enough of the flavor, or maybe it doesn't translate well into cookies.  I did, however use a new ingredient and had a lot of fun chopping my whoppers up!

your cookies look really good - mine spread out where yours look like they didn't! I did however like them!

Amen, sister! I will be so glad when we get out of the TWD Cookie Period. ;)

Always learning someone new! I'm ready for some cakes, to be honest!

Too funny - I'm thanking my lucky stars that there are so many cookies. They're much easier to fit into a busy schedule than a layer cake! Your cookies look wonderful though, and it looks like there are some non-cookie things coming up soon!

Wow, yours look thick and cakey! Mine spread and got thinner. I think I like yours better!! I am curious if the thicker ones tasted better.

Your cookies look great... but I'm ready for something new too! :)

I've been loving the cookie streak, too. But I guess I'm ready for some other things, too.

I feel you about the cookie crunch. My friends are starting to protest! Your cookies look great, though!

Ah, too bad you didn't like the recipe as much as I did. I loved the recipe and I couldn't stop stuffing my face. :)

Lauren, the cookies look lovely!

I love the cookie phase because I freeze them for school, but I am also ready to try other recipes. I am itching to bake the plum cake this Friday. Your cookies look great! I'm all out. Got any more? ;)
