Malted Milk Ball Chewies




I bought a large container of Whopper's at the store the other day, with the intention of making cookies with them.  I naively left the box on the counter - thinking them safe - and returned to find the box nearly empty.  There was just one, lonely little malt ball looking up at me, wondering where the rest of his malted friends had disappeared to.  Naturally, I put the little guy out of his misery and popped him in my mouth, letting him join the fate of his friends.  Now I had to return to the store and buy another box. 

I should have learned my lesson and made the cookies as soon as I got back home, but again I procrastinated, this time stashing the box on top of the refrigerator - thinking myself sneaky.  I should have known I live in a house of candy sniffing pro's.  This time, I intercepted the culprits when the box was only half empty, and managed to salvage the rest to make my cookies.  The result was a thin, chewy cookie with hints of malt balls.  It was very good, and the texture would make a great ice cream sandwich.  In fact, I may go to the store to buy ice cream just for that reason.


                                              

Malted Milk Ball Chewies

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2  cups all purpose flour
1  cup quick-cooking oats
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 cups malted milk balls, coarsely chopped
3/4 cups pecans, finely chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F.  In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugars together at medium speed until creamy.  Add the eggs and vanilla, mixing until blended.  In a medium bowl combine the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.  Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing well.  Stir in the chopped malted milk balls, and if desired pecans.  Drop by tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on how crisp you like your cookies.  Let cool for 1 minute, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Those are some great looking cookies, and you are right, they seem perfect for making ice cream sandwiches with them! Great pictures as well :o)

Malted milk balls were my favorite treat when I went to the movies when I was little. It was the only time I got them, and they are still pretty darn high on my list (behind the Butterfinger...). Interestingly, my family doesn't like them at all. I've printed your recipe anyway though and will eat these by myself if necessary. :)

What a great idea - malted milk balls in cookies. Mmmm...

I guess you learned your lesson - bring home malted milk balls and bake immediately.

Malted Milk Balls are probably my favorite chocolate candy treat. In fact I ate them daily while I was pregnant with my daughter and funny thing they're one of her favorites even at the age of 21 years.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. We'll definitely have to try them before she heads back to school next week.
