chocolate malted whopper drops.
These are cakey cookies, not the usual chewy or crispy kinds. I'm not wowed by them, but for malt lovers out there, these pack a good malty punch. My favourite part of the cookie is actually the whoppers themselves. I did not crush them, but rather chopped them into halves so that they don't dissolve into the dough. This way, when you bite into a cookie, you can get this pocket of melty malty goodness.
I'm going to try one chilled to see if I would like them even more in that state.
