tuesdays with dorie (or TwD) is a network of online food journals/blogs who all take part in the same recipe once a week. a few weeks ago, the recipe was "chocolate malted whopper drops" - think ovaltine and maltesers/whoppers. i was hooked. i had a free evening last night and so decided to tackle the recipe!

Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops
(from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan)

1 3/4 C all-purpose flour
1 C malted milk powder (or Ovaltine, says Dorie)
1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 stick plus 3 tbsp butter, at room temperature
2/3 C granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C whole milk
2 C Whoppers/Malteses, coarsely chopped
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (or chocolate chips)


Preheat your oven to 350ยบ. Set up a few baking sheets with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, malted milk powder, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.

Beat the sugar with the butter until creamy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Then the vanilla.

Beat in half the flour mix, just until incorporated. Then the milk. Then the rest of the flour mix.
Stir in the whoppers and chocolate chunks.

Place heaping tablespoons of the dough on the baking sheets, about 2″ apart.

Bake for about 12 minutes, rotating the baking sheets from top to bottom and from front to back halfway through.
