It's been a long time since I made cookies, mostly because I don't have any will power and would eat the whole batch within a day. But it's my birthday coming up and I figure I'm allowed a treat every now and again. These cookies absolutely rock and I will definitely be making them again soon. The chocolate flavour here is not overwhelming and the little nuggets of malteasers/whoppers bring a great extra layer of loveliness. I know you will love this recipe if you give it a go.

Please check out my blog if you like this recipe. 

Step 1: Ingredients

(developed from a recipe from hummingbird on high.)
1 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Ovaltine or other malted milk powder with some cocoa
115g unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cup malteasers/whoppers, very roughly chopped (I used a 135g sharing pouch of malteasers)
do you grease the baking sheets?
I didn't need to because I used baking parchment and in my experience you don't need to grease it. I reckon if in doubt use a silicone mat if you have one.
Thanks guys. I'll have to make another batch soon bajablue, just to check your idea out. ;)
I think these beauties would build the most outrageously delicious sandwich cookies. ;-P~
