Chocolate lovers: Combine your love for chocolate chip cookies and chocolate malteds with these Chocolate Malted Chip Cookies.
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 malteds. 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.
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.
It’s been a long, hard road, but I wouldn’t have missed the trip for the world. I will miss my dad dearly but intend to talk to him very often and will watch carefully for his messages back to me. After what feels like a long time away, I’m re-energized to be back blogging and sharing recipes with you, on what I hope will be a regular basis. I know in my heart that my dad will be looking down on me, and in his continual teasing manner, he’ll still be shaking his head in wonderment as to why in the world I’m taking so many pictures of food. LOL This one’s for you dad!

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you’ve enjoyed this cookie recipe as much as I’ve enjoyed bringing it to you. To coordinate with this recipe I’ve decided to share my hand painted bakers apron which is available in my shop on Etsy. All of my aprons are completely machine washable, and for additional fun can be personalized if requested.
