Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment. Beat the butter and sugars in a bowl until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs one at a time.

  2. Add the flour, malted milk drink powder, baking powder and a good pinch of salt, then stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a dough. Tip out onto the work surface and gently knead in the chocolate. Divide the mixture into 20 pieces, roughly the size of a whole walnut. Roll each piece into a ball and place on the baking trays, leaving plenty of room for the cookies to spread. Flatten each ball slightly with your hand.

  3. Bake for 10-12 mins until starting to turn golden brown on the edges. Remove from the oven, leave on the baking tray for 5 mins to cool slightly then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Will keep in a cake tin or cookie jar for up to 5 days.

So easy to make! However, do add more flour as it can be quite sticky! They tasted amazing!

Nice malty taste without being overpowering, however do add more flour as you see fit.

Although I weighed everything as stated, these came out completely flat! Mixture appeared too runny. I think they need more flour and perhaps half an hour chilling in the fridge before cooking.

We substituted Chai Latte and milk chocolate Easter eggs and can highly recommend it. My 10yo old daughter made these with almost no supervision, great starter recipe

Really easy, super delicious - enjoyed by all the family. My mixture was too sticky to roll into balls but blobs on tray turned into lovely cookies.
