Malted Chocolate Cookies

I've tried this recipe before, using Ovaltine, and they were good, just not enough malt flavour. However I recently tried the same recipe again but used malted milk powder, and they were sooo malty and chocolaty! They are up there with the likes of Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies, and that's saying something. 

malted dark chocolate chip cookies

recipe from Recipe Girl

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup malt powder
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
One 10-ounce bag dark chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat (or spray with nonstick spray).
2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugars until well mixed. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, malt, cocoa, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until the flour is incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough onto the cookie sheet in a rounded lump. Dot 5 or 6 additional chocolate chips on top of each cookie dough lump, if desired. Space cookies 3-inches apart on the cookie sheet (8 per cookie sheet works well).
5. Bake cookies for 12 to 14 minutes, or just until the cookies are almost set and no longer super soft in the middles. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.
