When I need a chocolate fix, these unique cookies do the trick every time!
2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup instant Malted Milk powder
1 1/2 cup malted milk balls, such as Whoppers, cut in half
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Melt unsweetened chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and heat for 30 seconds more, or until chocolate is melted. Set aside to cool.
Cream together butter, sugars and baking soda. Beat in the melted chocolate, eggs and vanilla. Scrape the sides of the bowl to mix completely. Add the malted milk powder and flour gradually, beating slowly. Stir in the malted milk balls.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoons (or use cookie scoop) onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. *These cookies are best a bit undercooked and left to cool on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes before cooling on a rack. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
