How this recipe came to be:
These cookies are inspired by my dad and it feels really good to be sharing this recipe for Chocolate Malted Chip Cookies with you today. It was during his hospital stay shortly after the first of the year that I found out had a great fondness for chocolate malts. Who knew?
I've been away for a bit. My family needed me (and I needed them) as my dad transitioned into heaven. It's been a very difficult time for all of us, but it's also been a very beautiful time for many reasons. I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with my dad before he passed, and we had some really great conversations early on. As I love to do, I got to bring him cookies, candies, and as the end neared, his favored chocolate malteds.
Why this recipe works:
These Chocolate Malted Chip Cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. They also have a rich chocolate flavor, along with a mild malted milk flavor that makes them very tasty indeed.
I'm proud and pleased to tell you that my dad gave them his complete approval as he gobbled a few down, which, as you can imagine, meant the world to me.
The step-by-step photos:
Cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla.
Whisk the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Slowly blend the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add the chocolate chips.
Spoon the batter evenly onto baking sheets and bake in a preheated oven. Cool and enjoy!
