What on Earth does this have to do with Whopper Drops? Well, I love me some malted milk powder. I had a chocolate malt instead of cake for my birthday. Malted milk balls are my favorite candy (the double dipped kind preferably – I haven’t actually had a whopper in years). I even put malted powder into my tainted ice cream torte.
I saw that Susan of She’s Becoming Doughmesstic made these awhile back and gave them rave reviews and I had to stop myself from making them then (it helped that I had just made some malted cupcakes that I never blogged about….maybe someday). I just knew it would be ugly. Well, that day came this week thanks to Rachel of Confessions of Tangerine Tart.
I could have eaten the batter in one sitting. It was like the best mix of a chocolate malt and cookies. I wanted to try these with the big fancy malted milk balls but didn’t have the time to get them. So, whoppers it was. I would like to try them with the other but I probably shouldn’t. It can’t be good for you to eat 30 cookies a day. I told myself I was going to eat two. HA! I had to put some of these in the freezer to slow down the consumption.
I baked for a little over twelve minutes and they were a little soft but I liked them that way. I should probably just rip this page out of my book before I do further damage. Oh, who am I kidding? I would just consume a million cookies in my attempt to recreate the recipe. Damn you, Dorie.
On an unrelated topic, a couple other bloggers have been sweet enough to bestow some awards on my neglected blog. I have been buried with work and personal stuff lately and plan to get those up and redistributed this week! I am even going to try to read a bunch of these blogs tonight. Who knows…I might get wacky and actually post those malted cupcakes or something else this week.
Next Week: Chocolate Chunkers. Will my waistline ever recover?
