Whopper Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everybody in this house loves Whoppers. I have been varying my favorite chocolate chip cookies when I can. My sons would probably eat the same chocolate chip cookies every week, but I need some sort of baking variety. I like to put M&Ms in them. I also made the S'more ones and now these.

These are big as saucers! They were crunchy with some chew in the middle. I will have to play with the recipe more, because I would have liked them a bit thicker than this. I subbed out 2/3 cup of the flour for the malted milk and maybe I should have just added the malted milk and the full amount of flour for the thickness I was looking for. The flavor was still great though.

Whopper Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cups butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 cup sugar
2 cups brown sugar (I use dark brown sugar)
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
3 teaspoons of vanilla
2/3 cup malted milk powder (I used Carnation)
4 cups of flour
1 tablespoon of baking soda
2 teaspoons of cornstarch ( I will try 2 tablespoons next time)
1-2 teaspoons of salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 cups of coarsely chopped Whoppers

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix the melted butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla. Sir in the malted milk powder and then the rest of the dry ingredients. Add in the chips and Whoppers. I measured a 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie and put 6 on a large parchment or foil lined cookie sheet. Bake 14-17 minutes. Get them out before they are fully set in the middle. This recipe made about 26 cookies and they didn't last long. I gave some to the neighbors so they would quit tempting me.
