These Malted Milk Ball Chewies are definitely a 5 star cookie in book!
So I have a rating system for cookies. It doesn’t involve stars or thumbs up – it involves cookies. Or more specifically how many of the cookies did I eat!
Some cookies are just One Cookie recipes, meaning I ate one and was satisfied, I got a taste and that was enough.
I needed to make cookies to take to some of the ladies from church who are celebrating birthdays this month so it was the perfect excuse to give this recipe a try. I found it over at Sprinkled with Flour – a pretty and delicious new blog I recently discovered.
The malted milk balls are a fun alternative to chocolate chips. The cookies are a nice thin, crispy edged but chewy in the middle type of cookie. The best kind.
So, don’t say I didn’t warn you! A Five Cookie recipe! I can’t be held for responsible for all the extra calories you may be consuming. I better add a few more days onto that 30 Day Shred!
