Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies – Cookie Swap!

Tis the season for gift giving.  Even better if those gifts are baked, sweet and delicious!  That’s why as soon as I found a cookie swap that was open to people in the UK I thought…where so I sign up!  The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is hosted by Love & Olive Oil & The Little Kitchen and all money raised goes towards the US based Cookies for Kids Cancer charity.

The cookies I made this year come from the Top with Cinnamon cookbook, but with a little spin on the recipe, of course.  I adore malt flavoured things, especially biscuits – those really plain Malted Milk biscuits are one of my favourites – so I opted to add a little malt powder and I didn’t bother browning the butter because a) I’m a little lazy and b) I didn’t want to distract from the malt and the chocolate by over complicating things.

A little side note about the chocolate is that I picked up a bag of chocolate chips from a local Chocolatier, based here in Inverness town centre.  The Chocolate Place is a lovely little shop at the end of Academy Street with some delicious looking chocolate gifts, perfect for stocking fillers!  Take a look at their website as they have an online shop which delivers throughout the country.  The chocolate chips were great, I always go for dark chocolate in baking and these had a deep flavour with that hint of bitterness that you need.   (more…)
