Malted Milk Cookies

Malted Milk Cookies- A decadent cookie base flavored with malt powder and pieces of whopper candy!


I will never grow tired of trying new cookie recipes nor will I grow tired of eating  tried and true cookie recipes. I like to refer to “tried and true” recipes as The Classics. An old fashioned malt would definitely be considered a  “classic” recipe and these cookies have all the flavor of  an ice cream malt, sans the ice cream. Basically, they’re a classic newbie! 🙂


Malted Milk Cookies are flavored with chocolate malt powder and pieces of whopper candy. I remember as a kid being so excited on Halloween night to discover all the boxes of Whopper candy that I had received while trick or treating! 


Malted Milk Cookies are best served warm. I know what you are thinking..aren’t ALL cookies best when served warm?!? The answer is YES, however, these really are BEST when served warm.  The heat helps to soften the pieces of whopper candy. 

I cut the candy pieces in half  by gently holding a piece of candy in place and using a knife to cut down the middle. This process was not as time consuming as it seems.
