Willy Wonka's Chocolate Maltesers Cookies

That surely grab your attention  hahahaha Actually it's not the name of the cookie recipe that I use from Dorie Greeenspan's book . She qoutes " if Mr Wonka had a soda fountain , I'd bet these cookies would be on his menu ". Now , if you have that book or seen some of the blogs that made these cookies , when you see mine , you'll think huh ! there is no way that cookies resembled anything to what I've seen in that book - I couldn't agree more *sigh* Mine are thin it looks anorexic tsk tsk and the color looks as if I overcooked it . I overbeat the batter as usual , that's why the cookies deflated when I took it out from the oven . I don't know if my using of dutch processed cocoa's the reason why I had that too brown looking cookies . I'd so many complaint that I'm not about to blab er blog about these cookies at all . Well , there's one good reason why you're reading it here hee hee TASTE , it's the yummiest cookies I'd ever baked - yeah yeah that's what I always said when I bake cookies heh ! Just check out the ingredients or better yet try to bake it yourself ......

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
