Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ
Adapted Taste of Home. These cookies are simply delicious. My DH especially likes the malted flavor in them. I substitute freshly ground whole grain flour for the all-purpose. **PLEASE NOTE**. If you substitute store-bought wheat flour for part of the all-purpose, you do not need to add the additional amount of flour - just use the same amount as all-purpose.
- 1 cup butter flavor shortening
- 1 1⁄4 cups brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup instant malted milk powder
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
