Tuesdays with Dorie- Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops

This recipe was chosen by Rachel over at Confessions of a Tangerine Tart, so go to her blog for the recipe. It seems like all I have made lately has been cookies, which isn't a bad thing, but I can't say that I was super excited to make these. I took the advice of others who said to leave the whoppers in fairly large pieces and used regular flavored malted milk powder. I didn't have any whole milk, but I figured half whipping cream and half skim would work fine. I also used 4 oz of bittersweet chopped chocolate and 2 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips. The batter did look like frosting, just like Dorie said it would. There were quite a few fingers in the dough and everyone liked these cookies. I tried one warm and thought it tasted like a brownie and couldn't really tell there were whoppers or malted milk powder in them. However, when we tried them about 24 hours later, I thought they tasted much better and you could taste all the different flavors. So, if I was going to make these again, I would definitely let them sit for a day and then enjoy. This was a fun recipe and a yummy cookie. To see what everyone else thought, check out the Tuesday's with Dorie blogroll.

I have a hard time letting cookies sit. I will have to try these! I love the big stack...I will take them all:)

I so agree on letting them sit a few days or so..they taste better. I too could not taste the malt flavor, but I sure could smell it while I was mixing the cookie dough. I used Peanut butter whoppers and pb/chocolate chips. I do love the look of your cookies!

Mine didn't last much longer than 24 hours. IN fact, not quite 24 hours. I served them after dinner to guests and there were only a couple left to fight over, but they did keep really well. YOur stack is gravity defying and as always they look wonderful.

Yours look really tasty - no too chocolate-y, just balanced well. They did improve with time, but still not my faves. On to the Chunkers!

Your cookies came out looking great. They almost look a little crisp. I think the cookie stacks look tasty, too.

It's interesting that letting them sit improved them. We are not good at letting things sit! Maybe I'll give them another shot.

They look fabulous! Love the cookie tower, neat!

CB said...

Hmmm... 24 hours you say? Maybe I should have tried some after a couple days. I wasn't really a fan (too chocolate-y) but I wonder if I would have liked them more on day 2? I guess I have to make them again and experiment. Its all for science. haha.
