My fiance and I love the flavor of malt (malt ice cream cups at Wrigley Field ... mmmm!), and these chocolate bar cookies are really a treat! It's a cinch to whip up a batch, but not as easy to stop eating them!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and grease an 8x8" square baking pan.
  2. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in a microwave or over a double-boiler.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until fluffy and light.
  4. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla and melted chocolate.
  5. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup chocolate malt powder, baking powder and salt; stir into the chocolate mixture and then spread evenly in the prepared baking pan.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes.
  7. Let bars cool in the pan before frosting.
  8. For the frosting: cream together butter, 1/4 cup chocolate malt powder, and salt.
  9. Beat in the confectioners sugar and heavy cream gradually until smooth and spreadable.
  10. Frost cooled bar cookies before cutting.

These were amazing. I used regular malt powder instead of the chocolate kind. The frosting was so good and I will use it for other desserts. Thank you.
