These cookies are fantastic. I love them also better than chocolate chip. Mine come out so nice and crispy and perfectly chewy at the same time and the taste is wonderful. I put the malted milk balls in a ziplock bag and hit with a rubber mallet to break them up. Hope that helps. Shannon Read More

This cookie has really good flavor but think it would be better with 1 stick butter and 1 stick margarine - cookie wont flatten out quite so much. Not sure why she says they serve 12 - i made 60 cookies from this recipe. Despite above we malted milk balll lovers loved them and I will definately make them again. Read More

Very good cookies but I made a couple of changes. First I made these with 2 cups of Robin Eggs (candy coated malted milk balls) and 1 1/4 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chunks. Second I decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup of each sugar because the Robin Eggs are much sweeter than the original malted milk balls. Third I added 2 tsp of vanilla. I had to cook longer for about 12 min. The cookies are very thin but nice and crispy around the edges and chewy in the middle. Read More

This cookie flattens out WAY more than I like. I even used one stick butter and one stick margerine and they still flattened more than I wanted. I also added 1/2 cup malted milk powder. I probably will not use this again because I have another recipe for a similar cookie that I like better. Read More

What a great way to use up some halloween candy. The malt balls by themselves are OK but in this cookie-divine! I didn't quite have enough so I also broke up some crunch bars and threw those in. Thank you! Read More
