Chocolate Malted Whooper Drops
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup malted milk powder or Ovaltine , regular or chocolate flavored
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick plus 3 tbsps ( 11 tbsps ) unsalted butter at room temp
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup whole milk
2 cups ( 6 oz ) chocolate covered malted milk balls ( Whoppers ) , coarsely chopped - I replaced it with Maltesers and added white chocolate
6 oz bittersweet chocolate , coarsely chopped , or 1 cup chocolate chips or chunks
* Preheat to oven to 350°F/180°C . Line baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats .
* Sift together the flour , malted milk powder , cocoa , baking powder and salt .
* Working with a stand mixer , preferably fitted with a paddle attachment or with a hand mixer in a large bowl , beat butter and sugar together on med speed for about 3 minutes , until very smooth . Add eggs one at a time , beating for 1 minute after each addition . Beat in vanilla ; don't be concerned if the mixture looks curdled - it will even out when the dry ingredients are added . Reduce the mixer speed to low and add half the dry ingredients , mixing just until they disappear into the batter . Mix in the milk , then the remaining dry ingredients , mixing only until they are incorporated . The batter will look more like fudge frosting than a cookie dough - and that's fine . With the mixer on low , or by hand with a rubber spatula , mix in the malted milk balls and chopped chocolate .
* Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the sheets , leaving about 2 inches of space in between spoonfuls . Bake for 11 to 13 minutes , rotating the sheets from top to bottom and front to back after 6 minutes . When done , the cookies will be puffed and set but slightly soft to the touch . Let cookies rest for 2 minutes before transferring it to the cooling racks .
Yield : about 30 but mine's nearly 40

I ate some of the maltesers that's why I added some white chocolate :P
