1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

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

Topping

2 cups milk chocolate chips

1 cup malted milk balls, crushed

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

Tip #1

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

Tip #2

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

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.
