TWD: Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops


This week's Tuesday's With Dorie recipe was chosen by Rachel at Confessions of a Tangerine Tart.
Although I'm a lover of malted milk balls, this recipe just didn't do it for me. Was it chocolaty? Sure. Was it chewy and soft? Most definitely. However, something about this recipe's final product just didn't reach my expectations! I guess I was expecting something more fudgy and gooey and instead I found them to be super dense and a tad bit dry. I went ahead and decided to be creative by replacing the malted milk powder with New York's own, Serendipity's Frozen Hot Chocolate powder mix.  I felt like I was eating hot chocolate cookies!

I'm looking forward to next week's recipe: Chocolate Chunkers. 

Cliff note: Chris-next week's recipe makes me think of your face.

Yeah, this one didn't do it for me, either. I'll be glad when we leave the cookies behind for a while. ;)

Love the idea to use hot chocolate mix! Sounds great! Sorry you didn't love them... I wans't such a fan either!

They still came out beautiful even though you didn't care for them! Good job....I think?

I definitely liked them better than I was expecting because I underbaked them by a minute or two. That way they were still dense, but not dry at all - just really fudgey.

Oh the frozen hot chocolate mix is so good! Sorry you didn't care for them but they look delish!

I didn't care for them either!

I found these were fudgy and brownie-like if you underbaked them a tad. Maybe these weren't for everyone. Anyways, your cookies look delicious to me!

Sorry you didn't like them! I underbaked mine a little, too, and they were pretty good.

Hello,

I feel the same way. I thought they were okay. I ate some of them. My kids finished them off, though. Yours look yummy!
