Malted Chocolate Chunk Cookies | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Every once in awhile, I’ll get this urge to just get rid of everything in my pantry and refrigerator. It’s usually when things get so full that boxes and packages and cans fall to the floor whenever I try to find something. And it drives me crazy to have a hundred different open packages there.

So every now and again, I’ll make a list of all of those open packages and ingredients, and I’ll go to work trying to use them up. A spring cleaning of sorts.

These cookies are the result of some of those ingredients. Some malt powder (which I didn’t use up yet – need to do that!) and some chocolate chunks. And I do have to say – I’m pretty happy with how these pantry clean out cookies turned out!!

These don’t have an overwhelming malt flavor, so even if you don’t care for malt, I think you’d still like these cookies. The powder gives them something different without being totally in your face. The chocolate, on the other hand, is quite in your face. But, really – isn’t that what chocolate is supposed to do?

    Very tempting and surely divine! I can never get enough of chocolate chip cookes.



  2. These sound wonderful! Lately I see so many recipes with malt powder and every time I almost buy some to keep on hand, the jar is pretty large and I need like…a half cup. Like you, drives me nuts to have so much open. But sigh…I do. My pantry is a warzone πŸ™‚

    Cookies, pinned!

  3. I think i was addicted to malt powder as a child. I use to eat it straight out of the tin! Pantry raid cookies are great because you can find out new flavour that might work together. If you need to use up malt powder do not be afraid to add it to coffee, milkshakes or even cakes for a deeper flavour.

  4. What a great idea! I’ve never used malt powder before, but I bet I would love the flavor it lends to these cookies! I love the first pic with the broken cookie with the melted chocolate… Mmmmm.

  5. Tieghan says:

    I have an opened jar of malt powder that has been driving me crazy! Like you I hate have tons of opened things cluttering my pantry. These cookies need to be mad, they sound awesome!

  6. Mmm adding malt to cookies sounds lovely! Great recipe!

  7. I can’t even move right now.

  8. I’m thisclose to doing an overhaul of my pantry, too! Unfortunately I have things like half-bags of rice and pasta to use up, which won’t go over so well in cookies. πŸ™‚ But maybe I’ll make these as a reward for when I finally do reorganize!

  9. Woowza…that melty chocolate is making my heart race

  10. I’m crazy about chocolate malt! These cookies look and sound amazing!

  23. Oh wow how spooky?! I just posted Malt Chocolate Chip Cookies today as well! They’re slightly different and your pictures are ten times better though, love your oozy shot! I always seem to make cookies when it’s getting dark so when it comes to photographing them, they’re cooled and not oozing haha! But I get what you mean about wanting to use everything up, that’s where mine came from although I didn’t finish the malt powder either! πŸ˜€

  24. I need to spring clean my refrigerator and cabinets! If the result is anything as amazing as these cookies, I will be lucky! I love malt powder and need to use it more often. It’s the best.
