Combine sugar and butter in large 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.

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