1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup malted milk powder
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup malted milk balls, crushed


Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs, milk and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Microwave milk chocolate chips in bowl 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving 30 seconds until almost melted. Stir until smooth. Spread about 1 teaspoon melted chocolate over each cookie; immediately top with crushed malted milk balls, pressing slightly into chocolate.

Recipe Tip

- To crush malted milk balls, place in large resealable plastic food bag. Seal bag; pound malted milk balls with rolling pin until coarsely crushed.

- If cookies spread too much during baking, stir 1/4 cup additional flour into dough.

This recipe was easy to follow and the cookies were flavorful!! If your a chocolate lover, you will love these cookies.
They were easy. My husband, twenty two year old son and his friends thought they were so good that I should sell them. I like cookies with nuts.
