These cookies were weirdly dry because they don't have any vanilla in them. I much preferred normal chocolate chip cookies and was a little embarrassed to give them to my friends.
I wasn't totally dazzled with these cookies. I also love malted milk balls and was excited to make these. They taste pretty good kinda like a white chocolate drink mix cookie. However mine were very flat and almost crispy ... I cooked them a little less and that resulted in a chewy kind of cookie. I did also try to add chucks of chocolate because you couldn't really taste any chocolate and disaster ... overall not bad but I don't think I will make them again.
not going to rate because I haven't made them yet but....try freezing the malted milk balls in order to make them easier to crush
