Malt Cookie Bars

Jessie raved about these, so I had to give them a try.  I wasn't entirely sure what "malted milk powder" was and ended up coming home with Ovaltine chocolate malt.  It did the job.  And the bars were delicious!  Think chocolate-chip cookie meets a whopper-flavored brownie (as in, the candy - not the burger!).  YUM!

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup malted milk powder
2 Tbsp. chocolate syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

Beat butter, brown sugar, malted milk powder, chocolate syrup, and vanilla for 2 minutes. Beat in the egg until well combined.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir to combine.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix well.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper (I just coated an 8x8 with cooking spray). Press the cookie dough into the dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes. They will still seem gooey in the centers so let them cool completely before cutting into them.

Jessie suggested I keep them in the fridge and serve cold.  We ate them too fast to try it them that way, but that just means I'll have to make another pan!


  1. Oh geez...seeing this picture makes me want to make them AGAIN

  2. i made these this weekend and they were quite tasty...and Jessie was right, even better out of the fridge!
